Here at Belsay we are already gearing up for our International Event in 2020 and are so excited to be hosting the British Pony Championships alongside a CCI**S competition for seniors.
The British Pony Championships is the pinnacle of the Charles Owen Sponsored Pony Trials Series for riders aged 16 years and under riding ponies (14.0hh – 14.2hh). It represents the toughest test for pony riders and is run as a long format international competition over three days to give potential GB Pony Team members vital experience for the European Pony Championships, which take place in August every year.
We have lots of exciting plans for 2020 and will be doing everything we can to give our competitors, sponsors, volunteers and visitors the most fabulous experience, generous prize money and some great entertainment.
Belsay Horse Trials already has the infrastructure in place to host an FEI event, with a specially designed ‘International Arena’ which has state of the art sports drainage, as well as a cross country course, which will be re-designed for 2020 by Adrian Ditcham, who was responsible for the track at the 2018 European Pony Championships held at Bishop Burton.
Please do follow this link to look at some of the fantastic photography from our 2019 event.
In addition to our International and National Eventing classes, we will also be hosting ‘Belsay Sunday’ on 31st May 2020 which will feature an exciting Arena Eventing Competition, as well as our already popular Inter-Hunt Relay and Pony Club Show Jumping, and a host of other family friendly entertainments.
