Good winter show but other shows cancelled
7th March 2018

Our BSPS 14 winter show enjoyed sunny weather, but numbers were down on last year, due to many being put off by the over night frost.


Many regretted opting out as it was a beautiful day with super surfaces. Then all shows the following weekend were cancelled!

BSPS head office says: Some of our members have telephoned to say that they are struggling to get qualified for the Winter Championships due to shows being cancelled and the Council will be discussing this matter at their next Council meeting on March 12th so we invite any comments regarding Winter qualification to be emailed to


As you know there are a number of classes at the Winter Championships that you do not need to qualify for including the RIHS qualifying sections, the Gold Cup Classes for both Novice and Open, with the great opportunity of qualifying for the Burghley Gold Cup competition, as well as Tiny Tots and Cradle Stakes classes, Novice and Restricted Lead Rein of Hunter Type, the exciting Working Sports Pony on a Lead Rein, Novice and Restricted Lead Rein and First Ridden Show Pony and many more….


EASTER EGGS - over 950 just waiting to be collected! We give away hundreds of eggs to competitors competing in a variety of classes so don't delay get your entries into the office. Along with the Easter Eggs for the classes, we also have a Childrens Entertainment programme so all those non-horsey children will have something to do!!
