I know that BRC has a winnings limit for Novice competitions where by horses with winnings over a certain amount cannot compete in Novice RC jumping or team jumping but does anyone know off hand if this is also the same for Pony Club?
Am I right in saying that a Junior riding a horse in BSJA is able to compete but only in the adult classes - there is not a lower age limit in the adult classes?
My horse is 15.2hh and one of my Pony Club kids is going to be doing a bit of BSJA on him and I just want to check...
Hi all, long story short, two novice pals - without any advice - having been out of riding for approx. 10 years bought a BSJA horse to start back riding - blown away by the excitement of buying and the fact he looked stunning.
16.3hh ISh - more TB than ID, 12 years old, bay, well schooled...
Having woken at a ridiculously early hour as I couldn't sleep :rolleyes:, I decided to head up to the stables early - had lovely times - Dressage starting at 2.34pm so lots of time to get there. After a trailer dilema as we were about to leave I was glad of the extra time.
Arrived with a good...
Auchinleck sections are up - Figjam, I'm in yours!!! Pads first BE and been 2 years since I last BE'd so feeling a bit fluttery :eek: - I am blaming it all on Noodlejaffa and taking no responsibility at all! ;)
Anyway, thought I'd let you all know sections are up :D
Thinking about venturing into the big bad world of showing and was going to try the Working Hunter class and Riding Horse class at a local agricultural show - what are involved in these classes? I don't fancy the one where you stand about for hours on end and take tack off etc - is...
Had a great weekend with Paddy so thought i'd do a mini report! :D
Went to our first BSJA intro show on Saturday, after some naughtiness on Monday at a local show he was on his best behaviour :rolleyes:. He warmed up really nicely, didn't bother this time about the others in the rng and...
Hey all, my current horse (had for a year now) came over from Ireland having done literally nothing other than hunt. He has come on a treat and for a boy who had never done even a spot of schooling now has great walk and trot work... then comes canter ... oh help. :eek:
He is as strong as an...

Well, so much for a nice quiet hack with a pal today. My friend has a new horse and is understandably a bit nervous about hacking out so I trailered up with Paddy who hacks all the time for a wee hack out.
Now, I always wear hi viz and round my local area roads are busy so I am used to...
Never posted in here before but wondered if anyone knew this Dam or Sire? Traced my boys breeding at last and his Sire is TB Mandalis and Dam is Irish Draught Silver Skip.
He was brought over from Ireland to me in October last year through a dealer. I'm not sure where to start as to...
At Area 1 Team dressage today - only second dressage outing for the Pads and I so mega stressed!
Got there in plenty of time, walked him about the lorry park and around the side of the outdoor arenas to get him used to the surroundings and then into the indoor school for warm up...

Pads having a wee schooling day off today after all our hard work this week - will resume tomorrow then hack on Saturday for the big team event Sunday...
Just watching countryfile at the moment and there is to be a bit on later on in the show about the start of the hunting season and what affect the ban has had.
Just for info guys don't know if it'll be any good or not :)
I just think - what are these people thinking at times - very ill placed and thought out - these men and women are out there fighting and he thinks it's funny when they come back severely injured???
Due to severe case of cabin fever brought on by waiting for pig flu results and hubby now having switched footie on I am desperately trying to find some horsey stuff to watch.
