2020 Award for greatest improvement
1st March 2021


In recent years the BSPS area 14 chairman, Anne Lucas, has presented a prize for the young rider that has shown most improvement in they year. For 2020 it went to James Burchell. "He came on so much. From being very wobbly off the lead to jumping in a working hunter pony at the end of the season in a very balanced performance was just amazing to see," said Anne.

Success in 2020
26th January 2021


Despite a late start and no county shows or RIHS or HOYS several individuals and the BSPS ran lots of shows in late summer and autumn to give us a chance to see some equine old favourites from the area, and some exciting novice faces.


Chloe Chubb brought out two novices. Both picked up a string of firsts and seconds, taking every possible opportunity to get out. Top novice was Shilstone Rocks River Dart (Rio) who was backed by Jo Burchell over the winter and went to a few winter shows originally aiming for the BSPS Winter Champs before we went into lockdown.


In typical Dartmoor fashion it took us a few attempts to start getting everything into gear but he had a great results at the BSPS Summer champs (which felt more like the winters) where he finished second in the novice small breeds class and winner of the Winter novice final. He also went onto claim reserve winter novice champion and was extremely well behaved in big classes and only about his fourth outing. He also went to the NPS Autumn festival where is he second in his pure novice final. Hopefully next year we will be able to continue gaining experience in novice classes and head to the championship shows again.
