Our Points Competition commences at our Spring Show which is being at Morris Equestrian Centre on the 6th April 2019. It is important that you keep a record of the points you gain over the Summer Months and record them on our Points Record Sheet as we will only check queries regarding point totals for Competitors who have submitted completed forms to us. The Competition will end with our Finale Show on the 14th September at Morris Equestrian Centre and completed forms should be returned to the BSPS Scottish Secretary no later than the 1st October 2019.
