Riders and ponies compete throughout the country for the 10 slots available to compete at the famed London International Horse Show at Olympia in December.
The Ponies and Jockeys of the SPGN come from all over the country and from as far afield as the Shetland Isles in the North, and Devon in the South. At the start of the SPGN season combinations of jockey and pony attend Trial Days, where their riding skills and ability to race are assessed. If they meet the required standards they are then invited to race with the SPGN. Throughout the Season Ponies and Jockeys travel the length and breadth of the country racing at different county shows and equestrian events in hot pursuit of only ten slots.
