We have given the traditional Performance Scheme a complete refresh and now welcome entries from Ridden and Driving disciplines as well In Hand competitors too.
The objective of this scheme still remains the same as a competition to promote and recognise the versatility of all the native breeds and their part-breds.
Riders/drivers/handlers can be of any age, and members and non-members of NPS Scotland are open to enter. Entry fees are £10 for NPS Scotland members and £15 for non-members. The competition runs from 1st January to 31st December each year. Entries can be made throughout the year as long as you have kept a log of your results.
Ponies are awarded points which are graded according to the activity which range from attending Pony Club games and rallies to competing at Driving Marathons, Long Distance Rides, Hunter Trials or Horse of the Year Show. There truly is something for everyone in this competition. See Points Scheme 2017 Record Book for details on how points are awarded.
