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
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
With our best wishes to everyone, stay healthy and roll-on
competition and events in 2021.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone.
