Inter Country Team at the BSPS Championship in Grantham on 22nd - 25th August 2018
The BSPS have invited us to enter an Irish Team to compete in the Inter country Competition at their championships in Grantham this year. This is a wonderful opportunity for our riding members to represent their county in this prestigious competition.
It is a working Hunter competition judged using the BSPS rules. The team can be made up of 4 competitors from at least 3 of the four height categories (133,143, 153 and intermediate). The Jumping tracks are open height plus 10cm and are challenging but fair.
