Now the worst of the winter seems to be past it is time to think about getting ponies ready for competitions! We have managed to keep quite a few activities going over the winter months with regular Show Cross events and unaffiliated Point Shows. Well done to those of you who have braved the bad weather to support these events.

On Sunday 3rd March  we have an unaffiliated Point Series show, all entries are on the day.

Sunday 10th March is the date for our BSPS Winter Show. Pre entries close on Wednesday 6th March, entries on the day at a slight additional cost.

Our Spring Show (normally held on the first Bank Holiday Monday of May) has been moved. It will now be run as a two day show with Working Hunter Classes being held on Tuesday 16th April, including RIHS qualifiers for the plaited workers. All Flat classes will be on Wednesday 17th April including CHAPS classes and the full range of BSPS ridden classes for Heritage, Show Pony and Show Hunter Pony. Depending on the weather it is probable that all these classes will be held indoors.

We are hoping that by changing the date of this show it will give people a chance to attend without the pressure of too many shows over a very hectic period, its worth a try!! The schedule for this show will be available very soon.

Please could all competitors ensure that their horses’ ‘flu’ vacs are up to date. At least 2 of the 3 injections must have been administered and horses must have been injected at least 7 days prior to the competition date. Please ensure that your passport is available for checking. Thank you for your co-operation.
