Age of Riders

Posted: Mon 15th June 2020

The Society has received a number of emails and letters asking if we could look at either increasing the ages of riders in all plaited classes for one year or increasing the ages for one year permanently because many shows have been cancelled for 2020 due to Co-vid 19 and some riders would not have their last year on their pony/horse in these classes. 

After several long discussions at “virtual” BSPS Council meetings and after consultation with the Royal International Horse Show and the Horse of the Year Show, the Council has decided not to change the ages for 2021.

The Council appreciates that this will be disappointing for a number of members in their last year but the general consensus was that the ages of riders should not be increased.

Even though lockdown restrictions are being eased, Covid-19 is still with us, and we continue to live in unprecedented and dangerous circumstances..

However, like every other sporting and equestrian organisation, the BSPS Council are currently carefully considering whether, when, and under what circumstances we may be able hold BSPS events.

In doing so, we must, of course, take into account government guidance, and we will also take into account as wide a range of information as possible to inform our thinking, including what other equestrian organisations are considering as they also decide what is and what isn’t possible. Significantly, this also means we have to follow the guidance provided by British Equestrian (the national governing body for horse sports in the United Kingdom), which at present would not allow us to run a live show or competition.

We do, however, want to be in a position to hold a show as soon as we possibly can and we are hopeful that in the near future we will be able to do so.

In order to be in the best position possible to organise a showing event which complies with government guidelines, the BSPS Council are currently developing a “showing blueprint” which will set out how it considers this can be best achieved. This will be finalised shortly and sent out to all BSPS Area Chairpersons for their views in the near future.

In the meantime, we remind all members to continue to abide by government guidance and hope that you all remain safe and well.
