Performance and Grading

Performance: Show Jumping and Dressage

There are a number of grading schemes run by the society in which NFPCBS members can enter their fully registered ponies. These include performance tests in Dressage and Show Jumping and an assessment (grade) of both forestrun mares and studmares. Stallions are also able to be graded in performance and they are eligible for premiums when shown at the Annual Stallion Show. Forest-run mares are also eligible for premiums when entered in the 'Forestfed' competition. Archive results for all of these can be found by clicking here or on the Archive news button. More information will be added under the different sections in due course.

Below is an example of the schedule for the Performance Grading day held at Brockenhirst .
