The Competition
An encouraging and low-key event designed for genuine novice riders. Additional advice and support
from our team of officials. Competitors to be 12 years and under on 1st January 2021 and to be
members of The Pony Club.


Our aim is that all riders have a positive experience and receive a ‘completion’ rosette. Rules will follow those as set down in The Pony Club 2020 Eventing Rules (https://pcuk.org/media/hs3jrvkc/eventing-2020-final.pdf ) with the following exceptions:

  • Combinations can only compete in one class.

  • Judges uphold the right to eliminate any rider they feel is unsafe at any time during the competition.

  • All competitors must present for each discipline check in at least 15 minutes before each section.

  • In Class 1, lead ropes must be attached to the NOSEBAND or via a COUPLING only.

  • Assisted means you can be in the ring with the competitor to provide VERBAL guidance and support. Any leading or physical contact with the pony or rider will result in penalties.

  • Running around with the pony following will result in elimination.

  • Numbers will not be provided. You will need to print off your number and bring your own bib to put it in. You will need to display this and your hat at the check in point on arrival.

Dressage Phase

  • In Class 1 the rider must be led with the leader at the shoulder of the pony.

  • Tests may be called in all classes but ‘instructing’ will be penalised by 2 marks in Classes 2 to 5.

  • Any normal riding bit is permitted for the dressage phase.

 

Showjumping and Cross Country Phase

  • In Class 1 the rider must be led with the leader at the shoulder of the pony. The leader must go over the jump at the same time as the pony, not in front. 

  • Rider s in Classes 2 and 4 of the competition may be verbally assisted by ONE person only.

  • Riders in Classes 3 and 5 who receive outside assistance will be penalised by 10 penalties on each occasion.

  • After 3 stops at any fence, the rider may continue to the next fence but will incur 50 faults PLUS the 12 faults for the 1st and 2nd refusal. Total of 62 faults.

  • The  Cross Country element will be within a roped off area in one field.

  • In Classes 4 and 5 there may be learner option fences that are lower which can be jumpedwith 15 penalties added as per the Pony Club 2020 Eventing Rule Book.

  • The Cross Country section will not be timed but those deemed going too fast will be asked to slow down.
