For those of you who enjoy developing skills with your pony other than just riding, these new Groundwork events are for you!
August test: Groundwork Test 5 (click the image below to download)
Entries will be taken as two sections:
Assisted (adult or older family member in the arena for support - they can help lead if needed)
Unassisted (handler on their own in the arena) NB. Just like ridden Dressage, the test movement can be 'called' from outside the arena, this does not count as 'assistance'.
Rosettes 1st - 6th place, and will be split by section and/or age depending on the number of entries, so please include your age when entering. We have 'sponsored' this event as Demi Dressage so those placed 1st will also receive one of our NEW Demi Dressage kit/hat bags!
The test is the same for both sections. Ponies can be led in either a headcollar or bridle. The handler MUST wear gloves and sensible footwear, we strongly recommend wearing a hat too!
This event does NOT require a full size 20x40 arena, it can be done in any size/shape space including in a corner of a field, with the course laid out as indicated. For this test, you will need 8 cones (any size). You must however still follow our Rules, including filming from the judge's position at C.
Closing Date SUNDAY 6th SEPTEMBER
This is the last Groundwork Test we will be running in 2020
Entry fee is £10 which includes UK postage of your rosette and sheet.
