Welcome

A Fond Farewell

Dear All

One of our instructors Marian Patterson is moving to Devon at the end of this month.

She has been an instructor for Mid Surrey Pony Club for many many years. Her daughter Louise is a past member.

I am sure a lot of you have had lessons or been on a rally when she has instructed.

Sue Arnold is organising a farewell tea party for her at the pony club field this Friday at 3pm.

 

We would like as many possible to join so please if you can make it be at the pony club field this Friday 18th August at 3pm to give Marian a big send off.

 

Kind Regards

 

Wendy Wrist Branch Secretary

 Talent Pathway Opportunity – Report from Jess.

image2image1 (002)

 

 

 

 

Ted and I recently went to the Pony Club Talent Pathway camp last weekend. It was an amazing experience and I feel very fortunate to have attended. One of my take alway’s was to write a piece for my Branch about it.

It was an absolutely amazing experience and everyone should really try for it next year. I was selected for the SJ track, but there are also Evening and Dressage tracks, 10 people per track. As well as SJ group and SJ individual sessions, I also had dismounted and mounted balance sessions, goal setting sessions and video feedback sessions, as well as personal mentoring, a session with a master saddler, ice breaking games and a barbecue.

They also taught my mum how to best help me warm up for classes. My instructor was Philippa Curry, she was amazing, and every track has accredited National level coaches. But the most important thing I learned was how much Teddy and I can do, and what we are ready for. For our final assessment round, we went round a full up course of 1.15m. Next year there will be Assessment days run in the Spring, and I definitely recommend you give it a try!

 WINDSOR REPORT

I was so lucky to get the opportunity to represent Mid Surrey in the invitational show jumping class at Royal Windsor Horse Show. The show was very busy and had an amazing atmosphere. The class is open height 1.10/1.15cm and as expected the course was technical and up to height. The atmosphere got to my young mare slightly and we picked up 4 faults at a very scary white double ! but she jumped the rest brilliantly. I would recommend anyone jumping the open tracks to put their name in the ballot for next year . It was a fantastic day.

 ERIDGE REPORT

At the One Day Event on Sunday at Eridge Park, our 1m Intermediate team of Hannah Ingham, Jessica Penn, Becca Stannard and Claire Stallard-Penoyre had a wonderful day, with the team coming in First! A very very hilly course meant that a few time penalties were incurred however Hannah took an Individual First, Jessica was Third and Becca was Fifth overall.

 

Congratulations..

Congratulations..

*****

Well done to the Mid Surrey Junior teams who did a great job at the pony & horse care area competition at Albourne on 23rd April gaining a very respectable 2nd place. Challenging questions and tough practical tests but a fun, enjoyable morning.

Well done girls.

MOUNTED GAMES

Mid Surrey had a successful day at their Prince Phillip friendly held every year on Easter Saturday

**********

The Mid Surrey mounted games event proved to be a very successful outing for the two teams that entered from the Mid Surrey Pony club. We had two teams that participated, one in the junior section and one in the minis. We were blessed with good conditions and strong turnout by all the pony clubs in the area. Mid Surrey’s mini team (which comprised of Hollie Heath, Max Heath, Libby Gallie and Lilly Duckett) were reigning champions from last year and although not always the fastest were again very consistent, at the end it was a very close call between the teams and Mid Surrey managed to retain their title and finished first out of a total of 8 teams.  The Mid Surrey Junior team (Thomas Edmonds, Ida Almqvist, Tilly Hutchings-Campbell and Ruby Beams) were entering the junior section for the first time and a little apprehensive about how they would fair, however they put in a fantastic performance and certainly adapted to jumping on and off their horses (though vaulting may be something we will need to practice!:)) and could hold their heads high with a respective fourth place finish out of seven teams.

A big congratulations to all the team members who had a great day and did amazingly well. So much so that the junior teams is now focusing on the Area mounted games, could a trip to Horse of the Year show be on the cards – only time will tell……

CHAMPIONSHIPS

Well done to all of our members who represented Mid Surrey at the Dengie Championships.

Congratulations to Jessica Penn  on Midnight Temple who finished 6th in the 1m class.

The class had 86 competitors and only 12 made it through to jump off, so very well done!

Milly Phillips also made it through to the Championships but had an unlucky pole on the day.

But Fran Luponi WON the Debut Dengie Class held earlier in the day.

Well Done Fran (2nd April)
