Show Jumping training for 2017/18

Many of you will be thinking about what you hope to achieve in 2016. You might want to improve your showjumping, to perform better in competitions, to represent the Craven at an event or even be a member of the Craven team at the annual Area Showjumping Competition in July or the team we have been invited to send to the Pony Club National Showjumping Team Competition at Hickstead.

We are running a number of specialist rallies which will help members improve their showjumping. These will focus on the skills and techniques needed to improve your showjumping performance so please also join our mounted rallies for all ages. We will always make it clear what height you need to be jumping to enjoy the rally.

In the summer we will also run training sessions for members of our teams competing in the Area competition which this year will be hosted by us the Hursley Pony Club at Sparsholt College.

We enter teams for inter-branch shows throughout the year, including our own show at Newbury Showground in June. Look on the website for details of opportunities to take part.

If you want to be considered for Craven teams for the Area competition we have certain expectations of you, and we make some commitments to you in return.

The Craven will provide training sessions with good instructors to give members the very best chance of gaining selection for a Craven team. We will be clear about the selection criteria for teams so that members know what they need to do to give themselves the best chance of selection.

You will gain competition experience and keep us informed of your performance. To be eligible for Area team selection at the end of June you need to have competed in at least 3 events at a height appropriate to the team you are aiming for. And you must have attended at least 3 mounted rallies for all ages between 1st July 2017 and the date for preliminary entries for the 2018 Areas in June. Camp or Clinic count as one rally.

Good luck!

As the season progresses we will post results and reports on the News page.
