Riders Cup has Pony Club Jumping into Spring
Posted: Mon, 14th Sep 2020
18 different clubs and zones have successfully applied to host the event – from Coffs Harbour in the North, to Bega in the South, and as far West as Dubbo and Jindera.
After making the difficult decision to cancel our State Championships for the remainder of 2020, Pony Club NSW has established the PCANSW Riders Cup – a showjumping challenge where riders can compete within their zones whilst testing their skill against riders across the State. Inspired by the FEI Childrens Challenge, this allows our riders to get out and compete in a fun and covid-safe manner and keep themselves and their horses active. International Course Designer John Vallance has generously designed all of our courses for the Riders Cup. All events will be run between the 3rd and 11th of October, with State results announced shortly after the conclusion of all events.
Our unique club network of around 250 clubs has given Pony Club NSW the depth of experience and knowledge within our membership base to allow for 18 different clubs and zones to host the event – from Coffs Harbour in the North, to Bega in the South, and as far West as Dubbo and Jindera. Every host club will receive a $200 grant from Pony Club NSW as well as providing much needed fundraising and sponsorship opportunities for these clubs. Many clubs have missed out on income from their canteen and their yearly fundraising events such as Gymkhanas and raffles, and the bills to keep the club running keep coming in.
Pony Club NSW Official Nutrition Partner Ranvet has come on board as a major sponsor of the Riders Cup event, they will be providing place getters with their Australian Made Nutritional Supplements, merchandise and more! We are very thankful to have the support of such a wonderful company that supports our up and coming riders.
It has been a tough year for everyone, however with much of our membership base coming from rural and regional NSW we have particularly sympathised with our members affected by drought, bushfires and floods throughout 2020 and hope that the Riders Cup will provide our members with the sense of community that Pony Club is all about whilst still being covid-safe.
