For those of you who enjoy developing skills with your pony other than just riding, these new Groundwork events are for you!
June test: Groundwork Test 3 (available to download below)
Entries will be split into two sections:
Assisted (adult or older family member in the arena for support - they can help lead if needed)
Unassisted (will be split by age if enough entries so please state age when entering) 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 in both sections, and we have 'sponsored' this event as Demi Dressage so the winner of each class will also receive one of our NEW Demi Dressage kit/hat bags!
The test will be 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. You must however still follow our Rules, including filming from the judge's position at C.
Closing Date SUNDAY 28th JUNE - note this is the LAST SUNDAY in June, not the last day of the month. Entry fee is £10 which includes UK postage of your rosette and sheet.
