  • Fourteen year old, Royal Artillery Pony Club member, Emma Talbot-Rice made history with her mother Elspeth on 21st February 2016 by winning the inaugural Ladies Polo World Cup on Snow in Bad Gastein, Austria. Organised by the Polo Instructors and Players Association (PIPA) and held over 3 days from 19 – 21 February, this was a prestigious international event with teams from the UK, France, Austria and the UAE.
    Emma and Elspeth, who is the Polo Manager for the Royal Artillery Pony Club, played France and the UAE to get into a thrilling final with another team from the UK. Played in a snow filled arena against a dramatic snow-capped mountain backdrop they snatched a hard fought victory in a nail biting game in which the lead switched several times. Supported by cheering crowds and filmed for Austrian TV, Emma was also named player of the tournament. ‘Emma is a superstar in the making’ said Uwe Seebacher, Executive President of PIPA.

  • We are very sad to learn that Mrs Dinah Murdoch died peacefully in Basingstoke Hospital on Saturday 2nd January.Mrs Murdoch had been involved with the RA Pony Club for over 50 years. All her 6 children were members and she soon took on the role of Secretary. This was then followed by a twenty year stint as District Commissioner until 2006, and finally she has been President for the last 10 years. She has touched and guided the lives of so many children, many of whom are now Pony Club parents themselves.We shall sorely miss her generosity, her keen wit and wise words. Our thoughts and condolences to her large and close knit family.There will be a Thanksgiving Service for her life at St Peter’s Church, Hurstbourne Tarrant on Tuesday 26th April at 11a.m.
