Syston Team SJ Results
Well done to everyone that took part in the Syston Team show-jumping at WWEC on 27th November.
In Class 1  (2ft) Freya & Imogen Cameron-Clarke and Megan Pocock (below) were joined by Grace Clarke from the Syston and all had double clears to come team 5th .  In Class 2 (2ft3) Freya , Imogen and Megan were joined by April Masters.  Freya and April went double clear but the bogey last fence caught out Megan & Indigo who were just unlucky this time.
In class 3 (2ft6) Harriet Tuson, Ocean Moore and Harry Willis came Team 4th, an excellent result, especially this being Harry’s first team SJ event.  There were no placings for Wylye in class 4 (2ft9) although some good riding with a clear from both Christie Antoniou & Ocean Moore & a very fast 4 faults from Chloe Derrick & Pepper.  A team sixth out of 11 teams on 16 faults in class 5 (3ft) – this shows what a tough & large course it was.  A fabulous result for Christie & Cookie (pictured below) who went clear & were individual 6th (there were only 7 clears in the class).
Thank you to all the organisers from the Syston PC who each year hold this marathon of a day and to Sandra for organising our teams.

Cotley PC Arena Eventing Results

Despite the last minute dash we managed to send four teams and some individuals to compete in this competition which was held at Kings Sedgemoor on 13th November.

In class 1 (60-70cm) we had the Wylye Wallabies: Freya Cameron-Clarke on Kaleidoscope Kacey, Indigo Cameron-Clarke on Beanie and Tegan Jones on Poppy (pictured below). The girls had a great time in the sunshine! Tegan had a brilliant round coming individual 7th.  It was Indigo’s first ever arena eventing competition and she did very well to complete and sister Freya, who’s been having a great time in her show-jumping, went clear over the show jumps but found the cross-country section harder to deal with.


In class 2 (70-80cm) the Wylye Wombats, Freya and Tegan were joined by Megan Bevan on Bob and Ocean Moore on Foggy, with Megan having a busy time also riding Rossmore Roy as an an individual.  All didn’t quite go to plan so no placings in this class.


Next we had class 3 (80 -85cm) and it was a team win for the Wylye Weasels (pictured above) , Christie Antoniou on Captain Hook, Gemma Holdway on Peek a Boo, Ocean Moore on Foggy and Megan Bevan on Bob with Ocean taking individual 6th place.  Megan also competed on Rossmore Roy as an individual, as did Gemma on her new horse Alpha Delta Whisky.

 Lastly it was class 4 (90-95cm) and our team of only three, the Wylye Wasps. Gemma and Christie were joined by Tom Griffiths competing for the firt time on his lovely new horse Boskenwyn Lad, otherwise known as Kenny. All rode very well but no rosettes on this occasion.

Well done everyone & thank you for representing the Wylye Valley!

B&SV PC Triathlon Results

B&SVPC Triathlon  October 2016

Well done to everyone who took part – it looked like everyone had a good time and we had some excellent performances.

In Class 1 we started with three teams but due to sickness and the fact that the bean bag competition was held much later than the other disciplines we ended up with two teams.  Nicholas, Verity, Lexi and Hollie were in one team with Bonnie, Lola, Katie and Bertie in the other.  Sebastian and Tallula competed an individuals as they couldn’t stay for the bean bags.  All the children put in excellent performances and then became excellent cheer leaders at the run for the other Wylye Valley members.

In Class 2 we had three teams,  Freya C-C, Imogen and Fraya S put in an excellent performance across the board to come in 3rd team with Gracie, Indigo and Tallula coming close behind in 4th.  Rachel, Ronnie and Harvey were in our third team with Harvey having an excellent shoot of 860.  Both Classes 1 and 2 had a huge number of entries so well done to everyone who took part.

In Class 3 we had one team consisting of Ben, Fin and Louis who came team 4th.  

In Class 4 Megan, Alice, Gretal and Tegan also came team 4th with April taking part as an individual with her mixed team coming 5th.

In Class 5 Tom was our only competitor and he came individual 4th coming individual first in the run.

In Class 6 we had two teams.  Lucy, Amy and Tegan came team 4th with Amy scoring 920 and coming second in the shoot.  Finlay, Harriet and Phoebe came team 3rd with an excellent first time performance from Harriet who came individual 2nd.

In Class 7 Katie and Millie took part in the Intermediates competition for the first time along with Holly.  Getting teenagers onto a shooting range by 8.30 am in the morning is no mean feat and for them to actually see the target at 10m let alone hit it was a major achievement!  They all did excellently to come in team 2nd against some very strong mixed competition and Holly came individual 2nd behind Monty.  For full results please see the Tri/tet Competition Results page.  Emma.

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.
