Spring Festival – Winter League

The Pony Club Winter League Show Jumping and Dressage Championships, kindly supported by Dengie, have become a rite of passage for talented grassroots riders, with many of the success stories going on to feature at The Pony Club Championships in the summer months.

Dengie, who are devoted to creating the best and healthiest horse feeds, have generously supported the Winter League Show Jumping since it was introduced in 1995. Open level of Show Jumping was introduced in 2006, and the Dressage competition was introduced in 2007.  We now have nearly 1,800 competitors each year, and 2016 sees the Championships moving to a bigger venue to accommodate the growth and a new Intermediate Dressage section.

There are three stages to the competition:

Preliminary Rounds: Held throughout the country from May to February (Show Jumping) and July to March (Dressage), the first four placed riders (and any tying for these places) at each of the Preliminary Rounds will be awarded rosettes and qualify to go forward to one of the Area Competitions.

Area Competitions: Held throughout March, the first three riders from each of the Area Competitions qualify for The Dengie Winter League Championships.
