Free to all members!

The committee of NPS Scotland have decided to make the Annual Points competition FREE to all NPS Scotland members to enter for 2022.  A fee of £10 for non-members.

We are delighted to be working with new sponsors TICK TACK (formerly Stirlingshire Mobile Tack SMT) who primarily supported British Eventing but have extended their support to Pony Club and Riding Club events and now Showing.

TICK TACK is there to provide the items you have ‘forgot’ on the day together with bargains that once seen you must have.

If there is anything you need out with the season, TICK TACK want to provide a personal service and ask you to contact them with your requirements via their Facebook page or mobile 07943 922277.

To get started please download/print off your log book form our website at Then just record your events/placings etc over the season (this can be backdated to 1st January as the competition runs to 31st December 2022).

There will be some great prizes at the awards in February 2023 at the AGM.

Good luck, look forward to seeing you at our shows and enjoy the competitions in 2022.
