AVHPC Christmas Team SJ Results!

AVHPC Christmas SJ – Friday’s classes were as expected now at West Wilts – jumps are full up! Classes were full, though not as many as usual in the first two classes of the day.  It was so good to see our members out during this holiday period representing our pony club, thank you all for coming and with such great supportive team spirit!

Lauren & Megan Blackmar both competed as individuals in class 8 which was a large class. Thanks to Megan for filling in this class at the last minute.

Megan Blackmar, Ellie Clarke and Mia Ralph were our team of 3 in the 95cms class with a lovely clear round by Mia on Rua and Ellie and Meg both on new horses.

Poppy Wilkinson, Tom Griffiths, Jodie Kelly & Milo Kennedy also competed in the 95cm class and did very well to win the class, with individual 6th for Milo and individual 7th for Jodie (and Poppy 11th).
Picture2

The challenging 105cms course did not affect our riders or horses, Mia, riding Rua as an individual, rode a wonderful round but had an unlucky pole at the very first jump.  Team 1st in the 105cms went to our team (above)again, of Poppy Wilkinson, Tom Griffiths, Jodie Kelly & Milo Kennedy with Poppy and Jodie both producing fast, double clears and individual placings for Poppy (3rd), Jodie (5th) and Milo (7th)

Below, Jodie and Poppy with too many Father Christmases (is that possible??)

PC Talent Pathway Scheme 2018

Supported by Aberyswyth University, The Pony Club Talent Pathway scheme will return in 2018 with selection days taking place across the country.

This scheme is for Members who want to develop their ability in Show Jumping, Dressage or Eventing and offers:

  • Area Training Days for riders to get tips and advice from top class coaches (candidates DO NOT have to attend a training day to progress to a selection day)
  • Regional Selection Days where participants will get training and feedback to help their future development in their chosen sport
  • National Camp where those riders chosen from the selection days work with sport-specific coaches, and benefit from both mounted and dismounted sessions

Six Members will then be selected to form the Pony Club Talent Pathway Squad 2018 benefitting from support of an experienced mentor, a training bursary plus further training opportunities.
