If you and your pony have achieved something recently, no matter how small a thing it might be (it doesn’t have to be a competition) if its special or important to you please let us know and send an e-mail to email@example.com and we will put it in our Spotted section (below).
Well done to Kate Prendergast again who competed in the South Wiltshire RC CT held at Warminster Saddle Club on 16th August. She was riding Kilpatrick Cassius and came 2nd in the Intro 3 and 2ft3 class and 1st in the prelim 13 and 2ft6 class.
A huge well done to Hannah Thomas who competed in her first ever BE event, coming 6th in one of the BE90 sections at West Wilts on 19th August and to Georgia Newby-Vincent who was 3rd in the BE90 Open Section. Well done to all our other members who took part.
Congratulations to Lainey O Neill (below) for winning the 65cm CT and to Chloe Makepeace who was 3rd on 16th August at Mendip Plains.
Very well done to Tom Griffiths on his pony Jay, pictured below, who qualified for Cricklands at WWEC on 16th August, with double clears in the 85cm and 95cm, coming 4th and 3rd respectively.
The Junior Area Show Jumping was run by the Cattistock PC at Aldon on 28th August. It went really well with 7 out of the 8 members jumping clear in round one. In round two it was the Bevan duo that both went clear so they went forward to round three where they both jumped clear again. Megan and Charlie finished 5th and William on 27 year old Kanga finished 7th out of 135 members! The team of Will, Meg, Kate and Lucy came 10th. Thanks to Jordan Phelps for helping at the rally and on the day.
The Senior Mounted Games competition started on Tuesday morning, the weather was good. The team consisted of, George Hobbs on Fern, Alfie Gibson on Libby, Lydia Collingwood on Peanut, Harry Willis on Falan, Brigitte Boher on Flicka and 6th member was Charlotte Limond. The competition started off badly not getting into the first final, but then the team picked themselves up and showed what they were made of and ended up winning the session by quite a margin. This then put them into the Championship final, in which the top 2 teams would qualify for the final places at HOYS. Things did not go well for us and we missed a few finals which we couldn’t afford to do, part way through it looked an impossible mission to get into the top placings, but in true Wylye style, the kids suddenly found their feet and came back fighting, this, going into the last race (5 flag) put us into joint 2nd position. The kids tried hard but were pipped at the post and we ended up in 3rd place which meant that sadly we don’t get the ticket to go to HOYS this year but nonetheless a great achievement. A big thank you to Maria and Jayne for all their hard work throughout the year.
Also competing on the Saturday was Jordan Phelps in the Open SJ on one of the smallest equines in the class, Willy. Anyone who has seen Willy will know what a massive jump he has and the combination beat many of the other competitors. They were very unlucky to have a pole down in each of the two rounds but nonetheless another great achievement and we wish them good luck today in the Elite SJ class.
Wylye juniors went to the Mendip Plains EC on 20th August for some pre Area show jumping competition practice.

The girls all did fantastically at the PC National Tetrathlon Championships at Bishop Burton in Derbyshire. The Junior Girls, Millie T-C, Katie Duffy, Mia Ralph and Roberta Cameron-Rossiter were Team 2nd in the Championship, only 24 points behind the winners, so really close. They all jumped clear and rode beautifully round a course with some significant questions. Katie had the best shoot of the Championship with a maximum 1000. Millie was our highest placed individual at 19th out of more than 100 individuals.
Our Intermediate Girls (Jordan Phelps, Georgia T-C and Freya Snelgrove-Brown) were Team 5th and also rode really well round a challenging track with two clears and only a couple of stops on the third).
A huge well done to all and massive thanks to Becca and all our team trainers.

Please see below our valiant team of WVPC girls competing in the Race for Life’s gruelling 10k course on 14th June. They ran to raise funds for Cancer Research in support of a fellow Wylye member, Hannah Francis, who has recently been diagnosed with cancer at the very young age of 17. Thank you so much to all those who have so generously donated as we have now raised over £3,000 which is an amazing effort by the girls. If you haven’t donated, there’s still time to do so at https://www.justgiving.com/canter4cancer/.

All members MUST have their hats checked and tagged by either Heather Collingwood or Kim George. This is most likely to be done at a rally or event.
The existing EN1384 standard is currently in the process of revision and your hat will now need to be either tagged with a purple tag or a white tag depending on the safety standard that your hat is marked with.
From 31st December 2015 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 E2011 and AS/NZS 3838) will be allowed and must be tagged with a new white hat tag. The full list of standards is as stated in The Pony Club Yearbook.
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.
To see the hat rule please go to our PC Rules & Rule Book page or our What to Wear page.
Please ensure you dress safely for all PC events, this includes rallies and training. Hoodies are strictly NOT allowed for safety reasons. Your instructor should ask you to remove your hoody or leave the rally if you are wearing one. For further guidance please view the What to Wear Page.
