We look forward to seeing you all there!
The Rockingham International are running the Pony Club team show jumping again this year on Saturday 21st May. There are though some significant changes in the format, this year there are 3 classes (70cm for 14years and under, 80cm and 90cm – height are maximum in round 1).
We can enter a maximum of 2 teams per class (with it being a team event, there are no individual entries), and it would be great if we would be able to enter 2 teams per level.
The entries close a month before the event, if you would like to be considered for a team please e-mail Jemma Whitlam at email@example.com (Joint Chief Instructor and Show Jump Team Manager) by Friday 8th April, and letting us know which height and any recent competitions you have competed in with the horse/pony you would like to take. The 70cm class is restricted for 14yrs and under. We will let everyone know whether they have been selected and which height class. Cheques will be then be due by Saturday 16th April.
The criteria for selection will be:
- The member must be an active member of the pony club
- Competition record (although we understand this is early in the season)
- Assessment based riding at rallies
Our goal in putting teams together is to both put the best team forward and ensure individuals are in teams that they will be able to perform well (and build confidence).
If you would like any further information or any support on what height to choose please do get in touch.

Fernie Triathletes have qualified for the National Championships on 13th March 2016 ..
In January Bethan Lewis won the Open Girls and Toby Langrick came second in the Open Boys, also with Best Run, so both have qualified to go on to the Triathlon Nationals.
The season started in October with Toby winning the Junior Boys Class with Best Run at the South Notts, followed by 4th in his first Open Boys, with Best Run, at the Brocklesby.
