Regionals at 70cm for Dressage and SJ

We’ve had it confirmed that there will be a 70cm class for Dressage (using 70cm eventing test) and a separate 70cm class for SJ, so there will be a class to qualify for at this level, from our Area 10 Area Competitions.

There will be no age restriction on these classes (previously intended for 13 and under).  Anyone who’s previously done 80 grass roots level is not eligible.
 
For info, here is a link to the Rectory Farm schedule.  Our Area 10 schedules are in the course of being amended to reflect this.

Endurance CPD for coaches

The Endurance Committee is working to support more members to take part and try the sport. To help this to take place in branches themselves Robert Blane has progressed an online session for Coaches to support them to find out more about the sport and get members ready to take part.

Spaces are limited to 20 people on the 5th April at 7 pm.

For a summary of the session and to book please see the link below. The session is an approved CPD for coaches and following successful attendance, our PELHAM records will be updated to reflect.

Would it be possible to encourage coaches to sign up where possible?

Many thanks

Area 10 Eventing League

Area 10 PC/BE League 2022

 

Area 10 is going to run a BE/PC league competition again this Year.

There will be three classes: BE90, BE100 and BE Novice (PC110)  and the entry fee for EACH class will be £10 (or £15 for a later entry) this is a one off payment for that class for the Eventing Season. You can enter as many different classes as you would like on the same horse or different horses. Separate entries are required for each horse/class. This is a non-profit making competition and the entry money, plus a donation from Area 10 will make up the prizes.

The prizes will be training vouchers with a BE accredited coach or someone from the Pony Club coaches list of your choice. The more entries we receive the more prizes that will be given. Previous prizes included a rug and voucher up to £100 for the winners. Please see the table below regarding how the point system works. We have changed this from previous years to reward good XC/Jumping Horses. We will also be giving DOUBLE points for those who do the Area Eventing qualifier. Half points will be awarded for points earned before your entry is made, so it will pay to get your entry in quickly. All BE results during this year will count. The winner of each class will be the one with the highest number of points.

Entry fee for EACH class will be £10 (or £15 for entries after 1st May). Please include your name, the BE/passport name of your horse, the class, or classes you wish to enter plus BACs payment (details from Area rep Isobel Mills). Entries can be taken now but will close on 1st July. Please email all entries to monmouthshire@pcuk.org.
