BSPS Area 14

British Show Pony Society


BSPS Area 14 covers the south east counties Kent, Sussex and Surrey. When you join the BSPS, you will be added to the area which covers the county you live in. Should you wish to join Area 14 but live outside the area, please state this on your registration form.


To get out and about after the COVID 19 lockdown we will organise clinics and a training show on 1st August. The training show is open to all, but entries must be made by email in by 25th July. Numbers strictly limited. See show page for details and schedule.


There are also showing clinics - usually February - and the agm in November and the Christmas Party and Points awards in December.


Please do not hesitate to get involved. New initiatives are welcome, as are people to help set up the shows and assist on the day. Phone anyone on the Committee or use the Contact us form.
