A very warm welcome to South Shropshire Hunt Pony Club 2014!

The Autumn/ Winter  Programme 2014 is ready now. See Programme of events section in the menu on the left.

Dear Members

What a fantastic summer it’s been!  Glorious sunshine (at the beginning anyway!) great camps, lots of different activities and great successes!

Our novice dressage team, Georgie Caden, Catherine Hughes and Rhiannon Corke, gave a very good account of themselves, despite a fairly disastrous day for various other reasons- the less said about that the better!  Sophie Hall was superb in the intermediate class coming second in her arena and narrowly missing qualifying for the championships.

The eventing team, Annie Miles, Freya Wynne, Flora Hemming and Sophie Heywood also had a super day, finishing 5th with Flora second in her section.  Hopefully you all read the report on the website.

As for the intermediate show jumping team – Melissa Griffiths, Imogen Marmont, Emily Elcock and Archie Rees – What can I say!  Fantastic!  Nail biting at the area competition and then finishing 1st with Emily qualifying as an individual too!  The championships were a great occasion and the team finished a commendable 11th overall.

Let’s see if we can get enough members together for a Mounted Games team next year- we didn’t quite have enough this year but hopefully some of you will be able to commit to it after Christmas.

Talking of Christmas, what a lot has been planned for you!  We are continuing to heavily subsidise the rallies this Autumn and Winter so I do hope many of you will be able to take advantage of the deal the club days offer.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped our club this year, from committee members to parents to friends and even grandparents!  It really is a team effort and all goes to our members having a fantastic time- please give yourselves a ‘huge pat on the back!’

As always, please contact me with enquiries or suggestions.  See you all soon,
