Spring hunter trial

Date: 30 April
Venue: Scunthorpe and District Pony Club, Bagmoor, Scunthorpe
Details: “Our annual spring hunter trial, with a mix of fences from 60cm up to 1.10m, there is something for everyone, from clear round, to pairs, to individual. For the second year running we are hosting Horsewear Ireland National Hunter Trial Series qualifiers. The main course is not timed so you can take your time and build confidence or you can “get on with it”. There is a short timed section within the course (not timed for clear round) which is always optimum time (target time will be displayed in the secretaries’ tent). The course is a mix of fixed and portable fences run on well-draining sand-based land, through trees and open grassy areas. A lovely venue that withstands the worst of weather.”

Arena event

Date: 30 April
Venue: Waulkmiss Show Centre, Ellon
Details: “Classes from 50cm to 1m. There will be 12-15 fences in total split in to two sections of showjumping and cross-country style fences. Both sections will be marked for style. The competition starts with a showjumping round started by a bell. The rider then goes through the timing beam into the cross-country phase, which has an optimum time. The showjumping is not timed. The winner will be the person with the fewest penalties once the jumping, time and style penalties have been added together. The aim of the competition is to achieve a clear round, with cross-country as close to the optimum time as possible. Cross-country fences will have a knock-down top rail. If this is knocked down, four penalties will be added to the cross-country time.”
