Cheshire Shield SATURDAY 7th July 2018

Second Bulletin –29th June 2018

Receipt of this email confirms that – YOUR ENTRY HAS BEEN ACCEPTED

We have experienced an unprecedented number of entries this year which has resulted in us having to take the decision not to run a Non-Pony Club section in Class 2 – the 90. In doing so we have had to disappoint over 30 riders, many of whom have been coming to the Cheshire Shield competition for several years. We are very grateful to our friends running the Area 3 Riding Club event the following day, Sunday the 8th, for agreeing to take all those who chose to transfer.

Nevertheless we have a very busy day ahead of us with over 280 entries– our largest to date – and all Pony Club entries received have been accommodated. They are divided as follows:

  • Class 1        (PC80) – 4 Pony Cub Arenas and one non-PC Arena – about 130 riders;
  • Class 2        (PC90) – 4 Pony Club Arenas – about 80 riders;
  • Class 3      (PC100) –2 Pony Club Arenas and one non-PC Arena – about 46 riders;
  • Class 4       (PCOpen-110)  – 1 Arena accommodating a total of 25 entries.

We will run the classes in that order and sections in the following order:

 

  • Class 1, sections A, B, C & D: Area 5 teams, followed by Area 4 teams, Area 5 individuals, Area 4 individuals and other PC individuals;
  • Class 1, section E: non-PC individuals;
  • Class 2, sections A, B, C & D:  Area 5 teams, followed by Area 4 teams, Area 5 individuals, Area 4 individuals, other PC individuals and Open90 individuals;
  • Class 3, sections A & B  Area 5 teams, followed by Area 4 teams, Area 5 individuals and Area 4 individuals and non-PC individuals;
  • Class 3, section C: non-PC individuals;
  • Class 4, sections A, B, C & D: Area 4 teams & individuals; Area 3 teams & individuals; Area 5 individuals;
  • Class 4, section E: Non-PC individuals.

Within those divisions, riders will generally be listed geographically, with those travelling furthest going toward the end of the grouping. The draft timetable below will perhaps help you to structure your day.

DRAFT T I M E T A B L E (approximate and subject to change)

A note about the weather and ground conditions

The current hot and sunny weather seems set to continue until at least after the weekend of the competition. Unsurprisingly the ground conditions might be described as firm to hard. In order to address this and present the best conditions achievable in the circumstances, the XC course is already being watered. Furthermore, we have been liaising with Somerford Park Farm and Area 3 of the Riding Club who will use the same course the following day, and agreed that we will jointly finance the application of 15,000 cubic metres of water (at 1000 litres per cubic metre that is a lot of water)  onto the XC course on Friday 6th alone. This will involve the hiring of three tankers, tractors and drivers to deliver about 110 loads during a 12 -14 hour day. Needless to say, the total cost will run into the thousands of pounds. I am sure you will understand if we decide that it is necessary to impose a starting levy per rider which will not exceed £5.

We would also ask that you take sensible precautions for riders, spectators and horses. There will be a water tank at the XC start – finish for cooling off horses. Please use sensibly and sparingly. Also, please ensure you have plenty of water and sunscreen for riders, grooms and supoorters.

For further advice – see http://www.pcuk.org/index.php/news/item/news_cold_water_cooling_for_hot_horses

Reminder about clothing and tack

Pony Club members: Please ensure you have a correctly tagged hat and ensure you comply with all dress/tack rules/requirements.

Non-PC members: there will be no formal tack check but please ensure all your tack, hats and equipment are in good order and comply with safety requirements.

Pony Club HQ have offered the following advice:

In exceptionally hot weather members do not have to wear jackets to compete in show jumping. However, they MUST wear long sleeves, and either a PC tie or stock. No short sleeved shirts/stock tops will be allowed. Parents are requested to please make sure that all children and ponies are kept well hydrated throughout the day.

Transport issues – Congleton Carnival

For those approaching Somerford from the direction of Congleton, please be aware that roads in and around the town centre will be closed between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday the 7th – see http://www.congletoncarnival.co.uk/procession.html

CHESHIRE SHIELD HORSE TRIALS AND AREA 4/5 CHAMPIONSHIP 2017

Please find attached the schedule and entry form for the above event. I have also attached some information regarding 3rd party/public liability insurance which I trust you will find helpful together with a Frequently Asked Questions sheet

This year the event includes not only the 2017 Area 4 and Area 5 Championship qualifiers but also, for the first time, the Area 4 and Area 5 Regional Championships qualifier (formerly known as Grassroots) for both teams and individuals in our Newcomers Class. For this reason we expect entries from Pony Club member’s to be significantly higher. Inevitably this means that capacity for non-Pony Club members may be reduced. However, we are still accepting entries from non-Pony Club riders and we will do our very best to accommodate as many as possible. It is therefore expected that the demand for places will be even higher this year and entries will need  to be submitted as early as possible.

Once again, those Pony Club Branches wishing to enter teams are able to leave team selection almost until the last minute. All riders/branches should submit entries for individuals by the closing date of FRIDAY 16th JUNE and team selection from those individual entries does not need to be notified (by email would be preferred) until FRIDAY the 23rd JUNE.

It is important, however, that ALL RIDERS HAVE ENTERED BY THE 16th JUNE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE TO BE INCLUDED IN A TEAM.

We have decided this year to incorporate the £10 start fee into the entry fee and, following our experience of last year, we have also had to make provision for abandonment. Further, in view of the fact that the Newcomers class is now a qualifier, we have decided to equalise the entry fee for all classes.

Please use a separate entry form for each rider/horse combination entry .

I do hope to be able to communicate with all competitors by email and keep them up-dated with event information from time to time, so please try to include a LEGIBLE (to me!) email address. If you don’t have a personal email address, try to arrange to use that of a friend who will pass on news.

Areas 4 and 5 Horse Trials results 24th July 2016

Many thanks to Emily Barnes, our Chief HT scorer, for preparing these so quickly despite being away from the competition for most of the day – helping to run our Mini-Camp – and also for drafting in most of the rest of her family to ensure it all went without a hitch.

Many thanks also to all other officials, volunteers, helpers etc. for ensuring that we had a splendid day and to the King family for making sure the infrastructure was so well presented and worked.

Thanks also to all you competitors, your parents, branch officials, family and friends for taking part so cheerfully – despite the 1.2 mile trip to the XC course.

We were glad to see you all and look forward to inviting you back to Somerford again – should we ever get the chance.

Regards … Geoff
