Welcome to Belsay Horse Trials!

Here at Belsay we are already gearing up for our International Event in 2022 and are so excited to be hosting the British Pony Championships 1st – 4th June 2022.


The British Pony Championships (CCI-S ** for ponies) is the pinnacle of the 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.

The British Pony Championships is a key trial for those wishing to be considered for selection to the British Eventing Squad for the Pony Europeans in Poland in August.  All competitors MUST stable on site.   All ponies will be subject to a vet check prior to entry.


Further information is available on the Pony Trials series via British Eventing
