The BSPS announce new Gribbin family ‘Future Stars Young Pony of the Year’ for 4, 5, and 6-year-old ponies.

In this exciting new championship, we’ll see classes for show ponies, show hunter ponies, intermediates and mountain and moorland mixed breeds. There will be associated special awards for riders under 17 years in the show ponies, 20 in the show hunter ponies and 25 in the intermediates, as well as sashes for the best 4, 5 and 6-year-old in each class. 

The classes will be held on Tuesday 23rd August 2022 with a championship in the evening performance, and the champion will be eligible for the Saturday night’s supreme championship.

The champion pony will win £1,000 and the reserve champion £500. 

Paul Cook, National Chairman of the BSPS said: “We are indebted to Antony and his family for sponsoring these new classes and championship with tremendous prize money. Members have been asking for a new class and championship for young ponies without age restrictions providing the rider is suitably mounted, this new competition achieves that objective.”

Antony Gribbin said: “We are delighted to support the BSPS in this new initiative putting something back into the sport from which we take so much enjoyment, the BSPS are promoting a number of new initiatives this year and we were pleased to play our part.”
