    The Smoke Tree Caesar Super League — for lead rein and first ridden ponies. 15 competitors will qualify
    The Ferndale Super League — for mountain and moorland (M&M) ponies. 9 competitors will qualify
    The Coalport Super League — for M&M and plaited working hunters and working hunter ponies. 18 competitors will qualify
    The Wharf Super League — for show ponies, show hunter ponies, intermediate show hunter, riding type and part-bred horses and ponies. 11 competitors will qualify.

    Judging will take place on Wednesday morning and the champions from each section go forward to the supreme championship on Wednesday evening.
