12/4 Please see the new ‘Area Competitions” page.

On Saturday 8th April, 9 club members made their way up to Herefordshire to compete in the Area horse and pony care competition. This is a great competition that involves members doing 10 rounds of about 10 mins per round. Members have to answer questions on all sorts of different subjects but all involve looking after your pony. This is a great comp to help you with your tests. The juniors of Libby Hemmings, Phoebe Gillingham and Alexandra Edmonds had a very early start. The trip was very worthwhile, after only one training session they came 3rd. The two senior teams then arrived and we all enjoyed a picnic lunch together in the glorious sunshine. These members need no training and did really well. The daffodil team of Eleanor Snow (a last minute stand in), Beth Hiseman and Marney Charles were just outside of the placings, the tulip team of Sophie Hilleard, Olivia Stocks and Amy Gillingham came 4th. Both the juniors and seniors were placed behind the Old Berks and Cotswold Hunt branches who train all winter. We did incredible well and well done to you all for going. If anyone would like to organise the training for this comp over the winter please let me know, we would really love to bet the Old Berks and Cotswold Hunt, we have a good laugh with them everytime. Well done girls you did brilliantly.



Congratulations to all our members who did so well at the Area quiz today. The Red Ribbons team of Aimee, Marney, Claudia and Phoebe scored 98.5 points to bring home a well deserved 2nd place, closely followed by the Babblers team of Amy G, Amy W, Dan and AJ who came 3rd.
The Berkeley Hunt South Scarlets team of Eleanor, Beth, Sophie and
Ollie scored 87 points and came 7th. Well done to you all!

Huge thank you to Penny Stocks and Caroline Breet for all their hard work and support.
