2011 SPSS Young Dressage Pony Championship

supported by British Dressage

Sunday 11th September 2011

 

Vale View Equestrian Centre, Leicestershire

LE14 3LX

 

The SPSS is delighted to announce that there will be another Young Dressage Pony Championships this year at Vale View Equestrian, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire on Sunday 11th September.  This Championships is being sponsored by the SPSS, supported by BD and organised and run by VVEq as part of their BD Affiliated Show on that date (so there are other classes running offering the opportunity for Young Ponies to be entered in another class as warm-up if desired)

 

There are sections for 4, 5 and 6 year old ponies and there are no qualifiers, so entry is direct to the Championships and is open to BD registered and un-registered ponies up to and including 148cms (149 cms with shoes) in height and riders/owners need not be BD members and may be any age.  Although late entries will be accepted if there is still space in the class, early entry is advised.

More information (including downloadable Entry Form) is given below - click on heading to jump to that section:

Background

 

Having run as part of the British Dressage Breeding and Young Horse Championships for a number of years, with the reorganisation of the BD Young Horse classes in 2009, the Young Dressage Pony Championships did not run last year.  However, the SPSS worked with BD and VVEq to get this event restarted successfully last year.  A report on last year's event with results is available here

 

Spectators are welcome at this event and a running order will be available including information about the breeding of each pony.  The Vale View Restaurant will be open serving hot and cold food and drinks and there will be other information about the SPSS and our graded stallions, mares and youngstock.
