Ayr County Show 2024 Announcement!

 

We have a lot of changes to highlight for our 2024 show in the Light Horse & Pony Section:

  • We HAVE NOT been granted RIHS qualifiers for the up and coming show held on Saturday 11th May, and whilst there may be disappointment by this, we see this as a positive and have taken the opportunity to revamp our schedule.
  • We will no longer hold any Friday classes, these classes will be held on Saturday, however we have had to drop two Working Hunter Classes due to time constraints within this ring.
  • Some classes have been moved into different rings and some have been amalgamated; BSPS classes will still be held and are open to both members and non-members of the BSPS – please see timetable & schedule.
  • We have created an additional ring solely for the affiliated Shetland pony sections in which we have added a couple of extra classes; in 2024 we will only hold affiliated classes for the Shetland Pony Sections.
  • In the M&M ring we have moved the novice ridden to before the open ridden and the open class format has been mirrored in the novice section.  We still hold the Silver Medal and as such the in hand classes have remained unaltered.
  • BSPS Working Hunter Pony Section; we have been awarded the Royal Highland Show BSPS Nursery Stakes Qualifier
  • Blair Castle BSPS Scotland WHP Training Stakes we have an additional 60cm class added along with the 70cm & 80cm; we have capped entries to 20 per class as we need to finish this ring before 5pm for the ridden supreme.

 

We are excited & positive by these changes and look forward to seeing you all on the day.
