THIS MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED – PLEASE THE STATEMENT FROM THE ORGANISERS:
After careful consideration and consultation with the appropriate authorities the Lanarkshire & Renfrewshire & Eglinton Point to Point Committee have come to the regrettable conclusion that it will be impossible to run the event safely (there are likely to be in excess of 4,000 participants) and so it is with much regret that we have decided to cancel the 2020 running of the Overton Point to Point.
We understand the great disappointment this will cause to many who come to our event but we feel we must adhere to the advices being given.
A prize will be given to the groom of the best turned out pony in each race to the value of £10. A prize will be given to the highest placed 128cms & under combination in the second race (138cms Open).
For qualified Riders who at the start of the season haven’t WON an OPEN Point-to-Point or an OPEN Pony Club Race, nor a “NOVICE RIDER” (Point-to-Point) race and who have never taken part in the Racecourse series aka “Charles Owen”.
For qualified Ponies which haven’t WON or been placed second in any OPEN Point-to-Point, OPEN Pony Club or OPEN Racecourse (Charles Owen) race since 1st January 2018. Combinations must have qualified as per the PRA Regulations. Any combination winning two of these races won’t be eligible to enter / run in another Novice Riders race until the Championship Finals.
