Mid Surrey Pony Club Championship

Fantastic Results from our MEMBERS

Harry Kitchener and Luke Townsend were invited to be part of the Southern Tetrathalon team

this year run by the Southern Region held at Southfield House, Nunney, Frome, Somerset,

They arrived Friday and helped set up the event, On Saturday they competed in the Shoot and Swim

And Sunday was the Ride and the Run. The ride was a superb up to high very technical cross country

Course which caused numerious penalties. Both Harry and Luke rode exceptionally well only incurring

a few faults – Overall Harry was 13th and Luke 10th fantastic results after a brilliant weekend.


The following weekend the boys travelled to Yorkshire alone with Max and George Kitchener to compete in the Tetrathlon National Championships. Harry represented Mid Surrey in the Open section

he was 8th  with a brilliant clear round xc, whereas Max, George and Luke in the Intermediate Section – Luke and Max both clear xc with Luke 4th Individually, and Max 15th with George getting the

award for the youngest competitor in the Intermediate section and the team was 2nd. Tasha Herholdt competed in the Junior Girls individual section and completed a brilliant clear xc


Finally the next weekend Harry and Sam Townsend had both qualified for the Pony Club Championships

at Chomondleley Castle in Cheshire in both the Open Show Jumping and Open Eventing classes.

Freya Hough and Alana Collett were their team members in the Open Show Jumping which was

Jumped on quite wet deep ground which caused numerious problems for riders. Freya was 5th Individual with the Team 10th overall – Brilliant result for them. The following day Freya competed in the Elite Show Jumping Class – first time Mid Surrey has every had a entry – The Ground again was tricky and she was placed 10th – Amazing – also on the Monday Harry and Sam Competed in the Open Eventing –– THE Open dressage test was in a long arena with Sam doing a PB OF 34.6, again ground conditions were not the best for the show jumping Causing faults and the xc course was really testing – both Harry and Sam were one of the few who finished clear inside the time across all the sections they both rode exceptional brilliant rounds with Harry finishing 11th in his section and Sam 7th – on the Monday was the Intermediate Show Jumping with Fran Lupoli, Jess Penn, Hannah Ingham and Sophie Roberts – this was class was causing enormous problems

Our members jumped well and finished just out of the places – Well done to them all – on the Friday

Stephaine Pitt represented Mid Surrey on Kerry in the Novice Individual Show Jumping she too

Jumped exceptionally well despite horrendous weather conditions

On Tuesday Jess Penn and Hannah Ingham competed in the Intermediate Eventing Jess did an amazing Clear Show Jumping round and Hannah clear xc – both members were just outside the



It was a amazing five days for Mid Surrey Members – Well done to you all for your efforts and

Your grooms and drivers who supported you all


Well done Mid Surrey


All picture the lst Class Images there are some brilliant ones



A bit of a mixed bag of results at championships although everyone rode well. Everyone tried really hard with really wet cold weather that played havoc with the going.  The SJ rings were like a ploughed fields at times, although the organisers did their best to roll the ground  and move all the show jumps for each class, inevitably the ground became deep in places.


Friday:       Stef Pitt has faults in both rounds of Novice Show jumping so was unplaced.

Saturday:  Open Individual SJ. Freya Hough double clear but rolled a pole in jump off. 5th . Alana Collett had a couple of unlucky poles.

Sunday:     Open Team SJ.  Freya Hough had another double clear.  Alana Collett had a couple of poles, Sam Townsend had a few poles as    did  Harry Kitchener.  Team were an amazing 10th Nationally and 11th Internationally.

Monday:   Open Eventing.  Harry went first and after a decent dressage had a few poles SJ but the first xc round of the day clear within the time,    closely followed by Sam who had a better dressage with a few SJ poles and the second xc round of the day clear within the time.  Of which there were only about 6 during the day. Harry was 11th in his arena and Sam rosetted in 7th place in his arena.

Intermediate SJ.  All had adventures and poles in the first and second rounds but  Jess Penn managed the only clear round for Mid Surrey in second round.  Team were Jess Penn, Fran Lupoli, Hannah Ingham and Sophie Roberts.

Elite SJ:  Freya Hough was 9th

Tuesday:  Intermediate Eventing.  Jess Penn had really good dressage, clear SJ but had an unlucky 20 penalties in the xc that put her from 2nd place out of the rosettes.  Hannah Ingham had one pole SJ and clear XC but not such a good dressage. 




 Talent Pathway Opportunity – Report from Jess.

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!
