Thank you to all the parents and children who attended the meeting at Blue Ridge on Saturday 4th May 2019.
Points raised and answers below:
TEAM EVENING – INTRODUCTION TO TEAMS:

As requested, an evening sponsored by the Scottish Committee to allow all interested riders wishing to be considered for the Scottish 128, 138, 148 and Debut Teams for 2019. The evening will involve courses built to the height of the Team classes to have a jump round.

SCOTTISH CHEF D’EQUIPE – VIEWING DAYS:

TEAM GILETS – SPONSORED BY ROSS ARCHIBALD/EMBROIDERY SPONSORED BY TAM RENNIE:
It was agreed to purchase a selection of gilets for the Team Riders only, so they can wear the same clothing and look very smart while they parade for Scotland at the Shows. Ross Archibald kindly agreed to sponsor the gilets and Tam Rennie kindly agreed to sponsor by doing the embroidery. Thank you to both for their extremely generous offers.
DEBUT TEAMS – Does jumping the RHS Q put riders out of being on the Team with gaining Gold League Points?
- No this was last year’s criteria, the criteria is as per the selection policy:
Debut Teams Eligibility for all Nations:
- English and Irish Teams: Rider to never have competed on a Home Pony Team 148cm Team (excluding Cavan) Scottish and
Welsh Teams: Combination never to have competed on a HP 148cm Team
- Rider to have never competed on an International Great Britain or Irish Pony Team (CSIOP).
- Combination to have never been placed (received prize money) in a Pony Showjumper of the Year First Round or Winter JA
Classic first round.
- Combination to have never competed in the 148cm pony classes at Dublin Horse Show (excluding the 6 and 7 year 148cm
English, Scottish and Welsh Debut teams will all be selected at each show from the specific selection classes as identified in each
10 & UNDER TEAMS – Will jumping the 128 RHS Q make riders ineligible for the 10 & Under Teams?
FEES FOR CHEF D’EQUIPE – Why do riders have to cover the Chef D’Equipe Fee?
- British Showjumping cover the majority of costs for the Chef D’Equipes, they fund over 50% of the Chef costs as they do the job on a voluntarily basis. There is no entry fee for the team competition, so riders just pay the £25 instead.
IRISH HOME PONY – Why do we not send a Scottish Chef D’Equipe to Ireland?
- Chef D’Equipes Mia Palles Clark and Hannah Jackson go to Cavan, if we have more entries than any other year then we would consider funding another chef to go. If we send 3 Chef D’Equipes we will have to increase the payment the riders make, and they already pay £50. If there are enough riders to make up a Scottish, Welsh and English teams then yes, they will be official teams but if there aren’t enough as per every other year, they will be mixed teams.
