Some exciting news for 2020 is the introduction of a new Junior Ridden Championship to be held at our Blair Castle Finals. This will be called the NPS Scotland/Maggie May Junior Ridden Final and we are currently in the throes of inviting shows to hold qualifiers. Those shows who already hold stand-alone Junior Ridden classes will be invited to host qualifiers and selected shows will be asked to present qualifying cards to the highest placed juniors in Open Ridden classes.
We will see how it runs in 2020 and then hopefully develop it further. There will be two classes at the Final as detailed below.
In 2020, NPS Scotland will once again be offering two training bursaries for under 25 year olds.
These bursaries will be awarded in two age groups. The first being 10 – 17 years and the second to members 18 – 25 years old. Age as of the 1st January 2020.
Applications are open to either children/young adults who are members or whose parents/guardians (in the 10-17 year old award) are NPS Scotland members.
Funding to the value of £150 for each bursary is being offered to further the successful applicants training and education.
The link to the application form is Here
Please complete and email to the email@example.com no later than 1st June 2020.
