We hope you are all well and staying safe during these uncertain times.
Unfortunately we have to report that all the shows and events that we had been booked to attend this year, 2020, have cancelled due to Covid 19.
So it is with much regret that the SPGN management have taken the very hard decision not to hold a trials day this year due to the loss shows and event along with government restrictions and social distancing being in force at the present time, and looks to remain in place certainly for sometime yet, however it is an ever changing picture but sadly all our shows and events have gone and won’t be coming back until 2021 which is why we won’t be holding the trials day.
If Olympia and Liverpool do go ahead in December then we will only be taking combinations that completed the 2019 trials day and are still eligible race under the SPGN rules. The ponies and jockeys will once again be selected as in previous years and the will be selected on criteria as mentioned above.
In the meantime we will continue to monitor the situation and we can only hope to be back firing on all cylinders in 2021.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to seeing some of you hopefully at Olympia and Liverpool and then everyone else in 2021 god willing and no virus.
If you have any questions then by all means contact either Sebastian or Vera.
Look after yourselves and stay safe
Sebastian, Vera and Sarah
There are a few things you will need to know before you take part in the racing.
Shows where you can qualify for Olympia will still have a display race each day, in some cases two.
Once a pony and jockey have qualified for Olympia they will have had to attended a minimum of 5 venues during the year prior to Olympia.
