BSPS AREA 1B Members Points


Members can collect Points from any BSPS affiliated show – note RIHS and HOYS qualifiers can be used but only if they are also qualifiers for the BSPS Championships.

You record your own points on the card that can be downloaded below or collected from any 1B show. Plus 3 additional affiliated to the BSPS shows.

Please complete 1 card for each pony/class i.e., if you compete in both nursery and cradle stakes on the same pony you need to keep 2 cards. Also, if you do Open and Novice classes again you need to keep separate cards.



How our area points work


  • BSPS Area 1b holds 4 shows a year and all classes are eligible
  • Any other BSPS shows listed on the points card.
  • Up to 3 BSPS affiliated shows



We hold a fantastic end of season party and points presentation night at which all members who have submitted cards will receive amazing rosettes.

The event is always subsidised by the area for our members and is normally held in November.
