Greystones Farm. Entry fee £5 a class members, £6 a class non-members) Classes:
1. Beginners - no higher than 30cm
2. Novice - no higher than 60cm
3. Intermediate - no higher than 75cm

Clear Round - Rather than run a separate Clear Round class, competitors may pay £3 and do the course as a Clear Round prior to their class round (and receive a rosette if successful).
Competitors (horse/rider combination) entering beginners and novice must not have come 1st in any show jumping competition. Beginners is what it says - designed to give encouragement to riders who are very new to show jumping and allowing them to have a go in a supportive atmosphere. Riders may be on a lead rein in Beginners.
Competitors must decide at the outset which class they are competing in for the Points Trophy (points will be awarded at 6 for a 1st, 5 for a 2nd and so on and totalled up at the end of the season for the trophy). However, they may enter other classes if eligible without accumulating points.
Anyone winning a Beginners or Novice class can continue to enter that class throughout the remaining Points Shows. However, anyone entering these classes cannot enter Intermediate or Open (unless entered novice on a different horse).

Previous Events

2016 ended in brilliant style with our Christmas Extravaganza Show. This was a new venture for us and was the brainwave of Hannah Pedley who organised the show - thank you Hannah. We had some excellent feedback and both competitors and helpers enjoyed the day. Santa not only made the day for some of the younger competitors but he said it was one of his best gigs. Would you believe that the Bambi Memorial trophy was won by a pony called Bambie!
The tombola was a success which we'll have to repeat (if Lisa Emerson is there!). Our judges were fantastic and gave some great feedback. They commended the competitors on excellent turnout, regardless of hairiness.
We're hoping to repeat the show next Christmas but bring it forward slightly to avoid clashing with other Christmas festivities - it will be Sunday 3rd December 2017 so get this date in your diary now!
What a great day! The highlight was definitely the Barrel Racing. I don't know who had most fun - the horses, the riders or the spectators. Even Pat had a go and amazed herself at getting in the ribbons. Highlands may not be speed animals but she gained a few seconds on accuracy. I think we'll be running this popular class in the future. There's now been talk of reining so maybe we need to get our cowboy gear out!
As for the rest of the show, we had some fab entrants from tiny Pip, Sal's gorgeous Miniature Shetland, to Bev's magnificent Mr Flynn. It was great that some of the Committee members had a chance to enter one or two classes - usually they're too busy running the show. Thanks again to our helpers and of course to our guest judge, Debbie Summers, who came all the way from the South Coast. Sarah Morris, as usual was a star, running the Jumping Ring so big thanks, Sarah.
A special mention should go to the wonderful Tom Horsfall who was a huge help both setting up the day before and on the day itself. I don't think he knew what he was letting himself in for when Sal brought him along but kept going until the last bit of equipment was away.. and he was still smiling! (I must also thank the rest of Sal's family who all came and helped.)
