2021 Championships

Dear members, parents, volunteers and staff,

2021 Championships

I am really pleased to announce that plans for The Pony Club Championships 2021 have been approved this week. To plan for the eventuality of still working within COVID-19 guidelines, the Championships have been planned differently for 2021. They will be held at Offchurch Bury, near Leamington Spa, over a slightly extended period to minimise the total numbers on site each day. Offchurch Bury is a beautiful parkland setting with an undulating cross country course and in a central location. 

  • Friday 13th – Sunday 15th August – Polocrosse, Mounted Games and Tetrathlon
  • Tuesday 17th – Sunday 22nd August – Dressage, Show Jumping, Eventing and Polo

Each sports committee will be responsible for their sport and we will make good use of online entries, timings and scoring. We are still exploring the best options for Horse and Pony Care, Centre Equitation and the Musical Ride competitions.

The Pony Club Championships will be preceded by the PC 110 Eventing Championships at the prestigious Festival of Eventing at Gatcombe on 5th – 6th August.

It is great to have The Pony Club Championships as a highlight of our sporting calendar.  I hope this news will galvanise Branches, Centres and Members to set their sights high when defining their Pony Club goals and ambitions for next summer!

Government Restrictions

There is still much speculation of a complete lock down as a ‘circuit break’ to the virus and we will continue to monitor the latest from the Government, as I am sure everyone is.

As of today, The Pony Club will continue to run under our COVID-19 Operational Plan in line with the new tier system in the UK. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales activities can continue unless there are travel restrictions imposed. Pony Club activities are not essential travel, but some restricted areas are allowing travel for organised sport.  

I will continue to update our National COVID19 Restriction Summary document weekly, so please view this (download link above) for what level of activity is allowed under Government guidance and law in each nation. It is all of our responsibility to keep everyone within our Pony Club community safe.
