The Pony Programme sponsored by Charles Owen


Georgina Herrling Euros 2017Each year the Pony European Championships are held for riders between the year of their 12th and 16th Birthday riding ponies between 142cm and 148cm (14hh – 14.2hh). The Pony programme is both a competition and training programme designed to produce a team that will represent Great Britain at the European Championships as well as to coach and develop riders for pony teams in the future.

Visit the links on the right hand side to find out what the pony programme is about and how to get involved.


British Eventing welcomes everyone who wishes to participate, however it must be noted that the competitions included in the Pony Programme are run at Novice level (1.10) with Novice level dressage and that riders and ponies should be competent to compete at this level of technicality.


Members who are not yet competing at Novice level above and would like to get involved can register and participate in all the training activities to better prepare them for pony trails.


The 2018 FEI European Championships for Ponies take place from 7th - 12th August at Bishop Burton College, East Yorkshire. Previous British Pony  achievements can be found HERE
