Eventing

The current Pony Club Eventing rules can be found here.

A useful checklist for the day is here, remember also that for Cross Country you need a hat without a fixed peak.

 

Eventing overview:

The eventing season begins in the Spring. If you wish to compete in One Day Events then you need to contact the relevant discipline organisers as early in the year as possible so they know to alert you to schedules and training. Julia Davies organises Levels 1 and 2 (PC70, PC80), with Suzie Vickery organising levels 3, 4, and 5 (PC90, PC100, and PC110).  If you are not sure what level you should be doing please speak to Julia or Suzie.

Approximate jump heights:

  • Level 1 (PC70): 70cm
  • Level 2 (PC80): 80cm
  • Level 3 (PC90): 90cm
  • Level 4 (PC100): 100cm
  • Level 5 (PC110): 1m10

Regular training sessions are organised for the three eventing stages – Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country.  These will be advertised on the calendar. Do come along and join in; we are a friendly bunch and newcomers are very welcome whether you want to compete or not.

Places at competitions always fill up very quickly and numbers permitted from each branch are sometimes restricted. Your entry form AND PAYMENT will need to be sent to Julia or Rowan promptly to enable branch entries to be submitted well before the closing dates. Details of payment amounts, cheque payees, closing dates etc. will be sent out with each schedule as and when they are published.

Members who compete regularly for the branch may be selected to compete at Area with the chance of qualifying for the Pony Club Championships (PC90 level and above) or the Regional Championships (PC80). Rowan is in charge of selecting teams for Area competitions.

If you compete at an event for the branch please remember:

  • Dressage – plain white or black numnah, no martingales, and check rules for bits.
  • SJ & Cross Country – ideally OS&B numnah with OS&B cross country colours and hat silk.  Also remember body protectors, and number bibs are often required, so it is useful to have your own.

Please see the OS&B merchandise page for details on purchasing OS&B kit.
