About the Spring Festival

The Pony Club Spring Festival has evolved from the Winter Series. To include Dressage, Show Jumping and now Arena Eventing, riders will compete to qualify for the Spring Festival Championships. It will be one of the main sporting events in the Pony Club calendar!

For 2020/2021 the Spring Festival will be split into two regions with two separate finals:

  • England and Wales (Final at Arena UK 9th/10th/11th April 2021)
  • Scotland and Northern Ireland (Final at SNEC 6th/7th April 2021)

We hope this will give everyone a really good chance of successfully making their way to their final.

Please be reassured that any competitions that have been arranged under the Winter Series rules will automatically be included in the Spring Festival 2021.

There will be up to three stages of the Spring Festival depending on sport and region.
