UPDATE CO-VID 19

Posted: Wed 3rd June 2020

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.

Mr Alan Hall - Past Chairman

Posted: Thu 9th April 2020
t was with much sadness that I heard Alan Hall passed away yesterday.  Alan was a devoted family man and a great supporter of Showing. In my early days on BSPS Council Alan served as Vice Chairman to Jim ( the late Jim Mc Tiffin), taking over as Chairman when Jim retired from office. Big boots to fill but Alan did just that, he was strong and firm but always fair and put the Society at the heart of his thinking. The outstanding involvement of Alan, Isobel and family with Area 1A is second to none.  I shall always be personally indebted to Alan whose encouragement and belief in me led to my further involvement with the Society and ultimately succeeding him as Chairman.  He will be much missed, My thoughts and prayers are with Isobel and family at this sad time.

Pat Pattinson

Chairman

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Posted: Mon 23rd March 2020

The BSPS Council had a Conference Call this morning and had to make some very difficult decisions regarding our BSPS Events in view of the recent government advice.


The huge challenges faced by our industry are unprecedented, so the decision has been made to reduce any burden on our health and emergency services.  We must take our responsibility in Society for the containment and control of the coronavirus as a matter of priority.


The government have recommended social distancing, non essential travel and public gatherings.  In view of this we have a duty of care to all our riders, owners, judges, stewards, organisers and supporters especially those in the vulnerable category and we have made the decision to stop all shows for a four week period until April 18th.


 These have been made in consultation with our venues Arena UK and Vale View Equestrian Centre as well as the Royal International Horse Show and the Horse of the Year Show.


 The Working Sports Pony Show will be postponed until October 3rd and 4th at the Vale View Equestrian Centre and all qualifications will be for the 2021 season.


 The Winter Championships will be postponed, and the Council are planning for the Finals of the Winter Series at the Summer Championships.  In addition, the qualifiers for the Horse of the Year Show Coloured Classes and the Pure-Bred Arabs will now take place at the BSPS Summer Championships.  This may mean that the Summer Championships will be extended by an additional day to accommodate the changes.


 The Midsummer Show will continue June 20th as planned at the current time.


 Our Chairman Pat Pattinson said “We must look after our members and their safety and well being has to be our paramount consideration.”  As a Society we have to work together to limit the spread of the virus – this must be a priority.”


We recognise that it is very difficult for members to plan for competition, but we will work hard to ensure that showing resumes at the right time.
