Liz Lyall, Chairman of Pony Club Eventing said; “The Pony Club is delighted to be continuing its work with British Eventing, and this new initiative will recognise just some of the successful Pony Club Members competing in British Eventing under 18 competitions. Our Members are given a competitive edge through the world class training we provide, and we’re looking forward to celebrating their achievements with them this season, and in the future when the scheme is expanded.”

British Eventing Chief Executive David Holmes added; “We are pleased to work together with The Pony Club on this new initiative and it is hoped that the pilot can be extended to more BE100u18 and Nu18 classes in future, supporting the achievements of riders through the The Pony Club and British Eventing.”
