It is with great regret that the National Pony Society has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the 214th Summer Championship Show, due to be held at the Three Counties Showground Malvern from July 31st – August 2nd 2020.
As you can understand the need to keep our personnel, members and competitors safe is paramount during this difficult year and social distancing would be impossible at the Championship Show.
On a brighter note we are planning on holding a show on Sunday 20th September if things are easier by then. This show will also host the 2020 Winter Finals so watch this space for further details and keep your fingers crossed that we are heading out of this long dark tunnel soon.
We can also confirm that all ponies who had qualified for the 2020 Summer Championships will be able to carry that qualification forward to the next Championships. The competitions committee will also be reviewing the novice pony rules at the Autumn meeting to ensure a fair and level playing field for 2021.
Planning is under way for 2021 and we hope that you, the members, will continue to support us.
Please stay safe, enjoy your ponies as much as you can and look forward to seeing you all soon
Jayne McAuliffe and the NPS Show Team
