Pony Of The Year Show Sponsors BSJA Junior Scholarship For 2004

The BSJA Junior Scholarship was launched in 2003 for Junior members in the form of a training scholarship. The scholarship has been kindly sponsored by the Pony of the Year Show for the second year running.

Traditionally profits from POYS have been reinvested to offer generous prize money and prizes in kind year on year. Such is the strength of the show it can now support Junior initiatives and the BSJA is delighted to welcome their support.

This scholarship will be in the form of two days training with a BSJA accredited trainer and will be awarded to winning riders at the following major competitions. If the winning rider has already qualified for the scholarship, the scholarship will be awarded to the next highest placed rider not to have already qualified.

Show Qualifying Classes

POYS All Grand Prix classes*
BSJA Festival of Show Jumping All Junior Championship classes
Royal International Horse Show All Junior Championship classes
Royal Show, Warwickshire AK Classic Championship
Horse of the Year Show All Junior Championship classes

*At POYS there will be one scholarship awarded in each Section. However, in the 11 and under Grand Prix, if more than one rider shares first place all riders placed equal first, not to have already qualified, will qualify for the scholarship. Competitors should see individual schedules to identify relevant championships.

Jacky Wood Chief Executive of the BSJA said "Any initiative that encourages training is a step in the right direction. Sponsorship from successful shows such as the Pony of the Year Show is indicative of the strength of pony show jumping in Great Britain and emulates BSJA ponies success both at home and abroad. This BSJA scholarship is set to help continue the line of success"
