Qualifying Points for National Trials

Once again we find all ourselves in the situation where all four home nations have been forced into total lockdown restrictions due to COVID-19.

The Trials Committee have once again made the decision to suspend the awarding of National Points from open trials, this initially took place during the first lockdown in March 2020.

We will regularly review this decision and we assure you that we are very keen to get everyone back trialling as soon as restrictions and safety considerations allow.

As you all well aware, the COVID-19 statistics are much worse now than when we had the initial lockdown last year. Our hope going forward is that the vaccines that are becoming available will quickly become the game changer everyone is looking for.

As demonstrated by the disruption of this season’s nursery calendar it is almost impossible to plan ahead at present, but hopefully we will be able to resume normal trialling later in the season.

Please all stay safe.
