Please find below the times for the N&TPC Showjumping competition on Saturday 21st October. Apologies for the delay with the but Pony Club Results has had a funny 5 minutes and won’t let us add them on there at the moment – but we are working on that!

SJ Times


We would like to reassure you that going at Horseheath is extraordinarily well drained and there is a huge amount of grass cover. We have had no rain at the venue this week except for 1& 1/2 hours on Wednesday late afternoon and until last night and today. (At Horseheath at 10.00am this morning the going was perfect and there is no standing water)

Our Health and Safety officer, the organiser who is a partner of NEH and Sue Peasley, the course builder, are perfectly happy for the competition to go ahead. The Arenas are big (60 x 80) so ample space to move fences if deemed necessary between classes and no need for tight turns etc

We hold all our Pony Club activities, Area competitions etc at Horseheath and a number of our members ponies do not have stud holes and some wear no shoes so we are well aware of these concerns.

N.B. In April 2023 when every competition was cancelled locally the N&TPC Huntertrial/Tetrathlon Ride went ahead at Horseheath and the going stood up perfectly with over 250 horses competing due to our fantastic grass cover.

The rain is due to stop this afternoon and hold off until 1pmish tomorrow so we have every confidence that we will go ahead.

N.B. All children ride in the competition at the discretion of their parent so the decision to compete is ultimately up to you.
