PONY OF THE YEAR 2021
Qualifying shows will be breed area shows, those area shows nominated by area rep where no area show occurs, the Breed show, and any county level or championship show which meets the criteria set out on the show affiliation application forms.
To compete at the final, which is held at the Midlands Exmoor Pony Show (Rugby Riding Club on 22 August 2021), the following must apply:
1. Pony must have received a qualifying rosette (results will be checked with the shows hosting qualifiers).
2. The exhibitor or owner must be a member of the Exmoor Pony Society (EPS).
3. The Pony must be in the correct ownership (if a qualified pony changes hand mid-season the qualifier will go with the pony provided the owner at entry is an EPS member and the transfer of ownership has been completed) if a pony is on loan then then this must be recorded with the EPS secretary. Again this information will be checked.
4. Pony must be registered in Section 1 of the EPS Stud Book.
At the final there will be 3 classes
Class 1 youngstock 3yrs & under
Class 2 senior (4yrs & over) in hand
Class 3 ridden (4yrs & over) lead rein entries if qualified on the lead rein are accepted
Classes will be placed and rosettes will be awarded up to 6th place.
Champion & Reserve rosettes will also be awarded to all 3 sections and an overall sash for the Supreme Champion will be awarded.
Premiums will be offered to all competitors entering the ring at the final.
