***********

Well done to all those Wylye members competing at Millfield BE on 14th and 15th May.  Particular congratulations must go to Hannah Francis who did fantastically well to compete, let alone complete, another BE event.  How remarkable she is and what a true inspiration to us all.  Good luck at the next one Hannah.  Also to Christie Antoniou (below) who competed in her first ever BE event and achieved a double clear in her section of the BE90.  On the Sunday Roberta Cameron-Rossiter continued her recent great success with another double clear to come 4th in her section of the BE100.

Meanwhile, we had several members competing in the Stonar ISODE.  Well done to all, in particular: Kate Prendergast 5th and Georgia Newby-Vincent 12th in their sections of the 80cm and to Tia Cuff 2nd and Lauren Blackmar 3rd in their sections of the 70cm.

Other members were out enjoying themselves in the sun at the hunter trial at Mendip Plains: Congratulations to Clarissa Crees winner of the 90cm class, Bella Crees & Ocean Moore 3rd in the 80cm pairs and then we mustn’t forget an excellent result for Wylye Mum Lorraine Antoniou 5th in the 80cm class!

Congratulations all, keep it up! Apologies to anyone missed who was placed, please let us know.

Millie competes for South England!

What a brilliant weekend Millie Toulson-Clarke had at the Royal Windsor Show, competing for the Southern England Region Tetrathlon Team.  Such an amazing experience and exceeded her and her family’s expectations by far.  It was a very high quality competition and Millie’s team of Southern England came 6th.  She went clear in the jumping but unfortunately her team mates did not fare so well in the ridng phase and so the team dropped from overnight 4th.  Millie came about 12th overall individually and in the top 5/6 girls….but Miles reports that the positions really were of no importance and it was being there that was the real treat.  They felt very lucky indeed.  Congratulations Millie!

Harry Wins For England!

image6

Wylye member, Harry Willis was selected to ride his pony Falan in the England team in a mounted games competition for the Daks Challenge Cup at Royal Windsor Show which was held from 11th to 15th May.

image4

The competition took place over three heats and a final. Wales took a seven point lead into the final, but due to a titanic performance England won the final in front of HM The Queen by three points. Harry was presented with the cup and his medal/rosettes by Prince Philip. His highness complemented Harry’s performance, particularly in the old sock race!

image2

In addition to riding in the competition, Harry also played an active role in the HMQ90 Birthday Celebrations, both riding Falan and with a role on foot.

Overall it was the most memorable of weeks, never to be forgotten by Harry and his family.  Well done, a great achievement Harry!

Team selection process

Area Mounted Games

Our mounted games teams had their Area competition on Saturday 23rd April.  We all made our way to Homelands Farm and the day started sunny, windy and very cold.  Our Seniors were on first, we had two teams of Seniors, the A team consisted of, Brigitte Boher, Lydia Collingwood, Harry Willis, Jake Hartley and Charlotte Limond.  In the B team were Ethan Collingwood, Mia Marshall, Hannah Garrett, Daisy Hunt and Tilly Lyons.  They all rode very well and the end result was the A team were first and qualified for Zone and the B team were 4th, they beat West Hants B team and Poole B team so a good result all round.  Next our Juniors were on, we only had one team of Juniors and they were, Lainey O’Neill, Conor Crouch, Tilly Lyons, Faith Cox and Livvy Miller our 6th non riding member was Lexi Cooper.  The Juniors did brilliantly as they only dropped 2 points which meant they won very convincingly and are now also through to Zone.  

It was then the turn of our Novice teams, we had three teams, they all did brilliantly and out of four teams in total we came first second and third.  The riders in the Novices were, A team Livvy Miller, Lexi Cooper, Ellie Burton and Lola James, the B team were, Issy Cox, Daisy Read, Bonnie James, Sebastian Phibben, and the C team were, Lewis Burton, Lexi Allen, Tallulah Phibben and we had 2 West Hants riders to make this team up.

Well done teams and good luck at the Zones for the Senior and Junior team.  Jayne Andrews.

Willberry Musical Ride

We are hoping to enter the Musical Ride competition for Area 14 on the 30th May and at the PC Championships at Cholmondeley Castle on Monday 22nd August.

We thought it would be nice to do this in a Willberry Wonder Pony theme. We need 6 to 12 riders to form the ride.

image009

Your pony or horse will need to be happy to ride closely alongside others/not kick/be fine with costumes and loud music!!!

  We are initially holding two training days and will then form a plan from there:

30th March 2pm onwards and 2nd April 2pm onwards, both at Southfield House

If you are interested in being selected please book in for training with Kim George – kimgeorge@live.co.uk or text 07912629700.

 Please make sure you are able to make the competition dates and that you are happy to travel 4 hours to Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire! You and your pony/horse will need to stay overnight.  Last year a stable cost £55 for the first night and £28 for subsequent nights.  Camping is a further £11 before booking in, unless you stay elsewhere.

 

Hat & Body Protector Rules 2016

If you haven’t already done so then you MUST have your hat checked and tagged by either Miles, Heather Collingwood or Kim George.  This is most likely to be done at a rally or event.

From 1st January 2016 the Pony Club will not be allowing hats which are only marked with the standard (BS)EN 1384.  After 31 December 2015 only hats which are certified and are also marked with one of the other standards permissible by the Pony Club (PAS 015, Snell E2001, AS/NZS 3838, ASTM F1163 and VG1) will be allowed and must be tagged with a WHITE hat tag.  The full list of standards is as stated in The Pony Club Yearbook.

The Pony Club will accept the new red BE hat tags, so if Members have BE red tagged hats, they will not need tagging with a white Pony Club hat tag.

It is your responsibility to get your hat tagged.  Please note the hat tag will not and does not indicate that the hat fits or is in good condition.

Body protectors used in Cross Country or Pony Racing must be BETA Level 3 2009 standard. These have a purple BETA tag on them.

To see the 2016 hat and body protector rules please go to our PC Rules & Rule Book page.

If you wish to contact us please see the Branch Officials page or e-mail us at wylyevalleypc@gmail.com where we would love to receive your stories and pictures to go on the website.
