Area Eventing 2014

Very well done to all our members who competed in the Area Eventing on 19th and 20th July 2014.  A huge thank you to Mrs Yeoman for hosting the event and a massive thank you to Miles, Sue Larson, Heather, Jayne, all our stewards, fence judges, managers and everyone else involved, for all their exceptionally hardwork organising and running this event.

The whole event ran virtually perfectly despite the appalling weather conditions on the Saturday.  The beautifully built xc courses were technically challenging on all levels and certainly had an impact on the results.  For results please see the Eventing Area/National page.

Pictured below are our NC A Team who have qualified for the national PC NC championships.  For all apart from Poppy this will be their first time at the championships so a fantastic achievement and the very best of luck to them all!

Pony Available

I am wondering if the Wylye Valley members would be interested in using Willow.  She is a 13.2hh 11year old mare.  My daughter hasn’t the time to do much with her, so at the moment hacks out.  Willow will be free for camp, Wylye activities, jumping etc  She has been to a few training sessions and raced at Wincanton and also local pony club shows.  So if there is a pony not well enough to do camp or any shows, rallies let me know.  I can do short notice to use her too. She loves jumping etc and is getting bored and fat!   Trina Murphy

This is the first time that their has been a National Championship for Juniors so it is fantastic to qualify for the first event.
