What is it?

At the 2013 Championships we introduced a Mentoring scheme, to help competitors perform at their best at the Championships, and in the future. It has now expanded to include ALL disciplines, not just Show Jumping, Eventing and Dressage. Current and former elite riders and coaches have been carefully selected to be your Pony Club Mentors. They are available throughout The Pony Club Championships at Cholmondeley to chat informally to competitors about their competition and performance.

How does it work?

NFU Mutual Pony Club Mentoring is designed to run alongside the Competition. The mentors can be approached by competitors at any time during the competition, including evenings, to go through the mentor cards. Upon completion of each card, you will receive a wristband – there are 4 to collect.

Your mentors can be spotted around the Championship venue in their Pony Club mentor kit, or you can contact them via the Secretaries Office.
