Pony Club Championships 2017

It was a great few days for Heythrop teams and individuals at the Pony Club Championships in Cheshire in very difficult and muddy conditions.

Novice Eventing:
Great performances and double clears for Molly Hughes 3rd in section; Hannah Bird 4th in section

Intermediate Dressage team
Amity Thwaites 1st in section with 75% and qualifying for ride-off, completing her very long day with 10th placing 66%
Imogen Humphrey put in good performance at Choccys first Champs!
Izzy Lovat had an interesting time on a very excited Archie while Izzy Rugman put in another great performance with Herbie.

Intermediate Show Jumping
Happily Casper rejoined Tom Bird for Champs to finish 8th in Individual

Team 2nd (Jess Bennell with Inky, Matilda Ashton & Seamus, Tom Bird & Casper and Emma Stringer & Syd). A great result moving from 5th after first round completing on 20 pens as poles fell in both rounds due to the testing conditions.

Intermediate Eventing
Izzy Rugman gave Maggie a great ride in dressage and a lovely clear SJ. A slight miscommunication at the tricky combination at 4th fence the only blip in an otherwise great XC round.

Open Eventing
Area 9 fielded a mixed team with Tom Bird representing Heythrop to take the Win. Superb effort from Tom running (cycling) between SJ rounds on Casper and all 3 event phases on Fury! Tom was also 6th individually.

Well done everyone- great successes, as always friendly atmosphere despite the weather. Thanks to all the parents, supporters and trainers especially Miranda Lucey, Fran Bird and Caroline for the wonderful suppers.

Hickstead 2017

 On 3rd August Heythrop sent an Open Show Jumping team to compete at the PC and Schools competition at Hickstead.

Honor Barker, Lucy Hall, Tom Bird and Emma Stringer had a great experience, narrowly missing out on qualification for the second round in the main arena. It was a very wet and windy couple of days, with ponies changing stables after waking up in a swamp, finding a clean bit of concrete to put boots on (pictured) and waiting to go into the arena.

Rory Richmond – Watson had such a great time at the Cocklebarrow Races, Caroline O’Kane asked him to tell us about it!

Well done Rory.

When Cathy Twiston-Davies gave a talk at prize giving back in December about pony racing, I thought that it would be really fun to give it a go.
So after two really fun rallies with Johnny Trice-Rolph( including one on Charlie Longsdon’s gallops) the next thing I knew I was lining up at Cocklebarrow races against Freddie White, Georgie Campbell, Eugenia Barker and three others from other pony clubs. The race was so much fun, Nora (who has never really seen the point of going fast without hounds in front of her) was amazing. Somehow we ended up coming third and won the shiny new Twiston-Davies cup presented by Willie himself! It was such a fun day……Next stop Cheltenham!
