Welcome to the Old Berkshire Hunt Pony Club website
Yesterday saw two Junior Old Berkshire teams compete with great success at the Area 9 Mounted Games. Our Stars team was captained by Tilly King on Mouse with Gabriel Jennings on another Mouse, Scarlett Starkey on Popcorn, Bonnie Armitage on Lindsay and Kate Jacovides on Calypso. Our Saltires team was captained by Lara Marsh on Ping with Ella Cadogan on Buzz Lightyear, Bea Cadogan on Bob, Freddie Curtis on Bertie and William Curtis on Harley.
Both teams were immaculately turn out with sparklingly clean ponies, tack and riders and the Stars team won the hotly contested Tack and Turnout competition. Well done to all pony washers, jodphur boot polishers and tack clearners.
In the competition the Stars came 4th and the Saltires 6th which was really good. The teams have been brilliantly instructed by Shane John since Christmas.
Shane is keen to continue his hard work throughout the next year, meeting at Lyford every third Friday at 4.45 so please sign up for these fun rallies and join in the mounted games fun. There are going to be lots of fun rallies where lead rein can join in with junior and senior teams. There are other team competitions throughout the summer and early next year to attend so that the Areas is not the only team outing
Area 9 Horse & Pony Care Competition – Old Berkshire qualify for the Championships!
Our branch was hosting the Competition again this year, and again the weather was glorious. Our Juniors Louise, Eleanor and Ophelia won, and Milly, Jessie and Macey came second. Well done, girls! This branch holds the Junior Championship Trophy – Louise, Eleanor and Ophelia are off to Cholmondeley Castle in August to compete to retain it (no pressure there, then!)
