NPS Scotland Breed Discussion Series – Update

Our Breed Discussion Series has proven to be a great success and we have enjoyed 5 weeks of excellent talks by Jo Jack, Richard Telford, David Blair, Pat Rennie and Jane Somerset on their relevant breeds.  Each evening brings a new perspective and I think we have all learned so much and certainly enjoyed the presentations.  We are so grateful to all our presenters for taking the time to share their knowledge and experience with us.

NPS Scotland 2021 Event Update

Firstly, we would like to thank everyone for your patience in these difficult times.  Following the Scottish Government announcements last week, the NPS Scotland Committee have met and discussed our plans for 2021, taking into consideration the restrictions currently in place and the hope that they are eased towards the end of April.  Sadly, our Spring Show scheduled for 24th and 25th April at SNEC cannot go ahead, but we do have alternative plans and outline them below. 

Dressage Day – Saturday 22nd May at Champfleurie Equestrian, Linlithgow.

This season opener is the ideal way to ease everyone back into competition.  There will be classes for Intro, Prelim, Novice, Elementary and possibly Medium (timetable TBC).  We hope that you will be able to come, and our aim is to give you at least two classes to do on the day.  Everyone welcome and it would be great to see you.

Spring Show – Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th June at Strathallan Castle, Auchterarder.

As this Show cannot be held in April, we are moving it to our traditional June Summer Show date.  We will be hosting one of the last NPS RIHS M&M WHP Qualifiers on Saturday, 12th June.  This is great news that we have been allowed to transfer this qualifier from our April date and that it is not lost to Scotland.  The Show will follow the usual Spring Show timetable and have all the NPS Summer Championship Qualifiers.

We are aware that BSPS Scotland are also holding a Show over this same weekend as traditionally we usually run on the Saturday and they run on the Sunday.  However, as mentioned we will be WHP on the Saturday and Flat/IH classes on the Sunday and they will be running vice versa.

Summer Show – Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th July at SNEC, Oatridge College.

For 2021 only, we are moving our Summer Show to July and will again be following the Spring Show timetable with WHP on the Saturday and the flat and in hand classes on the Sunday.

NPS Scotland/Blair Castle Horse Trials Open Show – Friday, 28th August

With so many Shows cancelled for 2021 and therefore no qualifying rounds held, we have had to cancel our usual Championships this year.  However, we will run an Open Show for all our members to enter and the timetable will be similar to that of our Championships.

 We will keep you all updated with further details, advise you when schedules are available and give you the relevant Covid information in due course.

With our best wishes to everyone, stay healthy and roll-on competition and events in 2021. 

We are looking forward to seeing everyone.
