Roberta Cameron-Rossiter and her horse, Trillion, have had a successful week of dressage. They competed in a prelim and a novice test at West Wilts on Tuesday 10th January and came 2nd & 4th respectively. On 15th January they went to Burrows Court Nr Dursley and rode two tests, a prelim and a novice, coming second in both tests. Trillion was brilliant and worked his socks off. There was a large field in the prelim. Marnie Lister also rode in the prelim and was just out of the rosettes being only 0.20% behind 6th Place. A big well done to Marnie & Oscar and Roberta & Trillion!
Senior & junior mounted games practice will resume on the 22nd January at 10am at Southfield House

AVHPC Christmas SJ 2016
We were lucky enough to be able to enter 17 teams in to the Avon Vale PC Christmas SJ which was held at WWEC and spread over two days at the end of December. Whatever the result everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and entered into the team spirit. We had entries in nearly every class and achieved the following placings:
In the 60cm 11yrs and under class our Wylye Tinsel Trotters Team (pictured below) of Indigo Cameron-Clarke on Beanie, Hannah Limond on Puzzle, Tilly Lyons on Alanna and Faith Cox on Honey did very well to come 4th.
In the 80cm 16yrs and under class, though we didn’t get any team placings, we had some excellent individual results – Charlotte Limond, in what was apparently her first “proper” SJ competition, came 9th and Amelia Knatchbull came 2nd.
In the 90cm class the Wylye Rudolphs Team of Millie Toulson-Clarke on Penddolfawr Thomas, Chloe Derrick on Pepper, Bella Crees on Noah and Clarissa Crees on Tall Story won with Millie individual 5th, Bella individual 7th and Clarissa individual 11th.
On the Friday, in the 85cm class our “The Christingles” came 4th. The team were Christie Antoniou on Captain Hook, Ocean Moore on Foggy, Meg Bevan on Ickle Pickle and Will Bevan on Rocket.
Hannah Francis was clearly still weaving her magic upon us as it was a team win for the Wylye Winter Willberries in the 95cm class. The team (pictured below) were Tom Griffiths on Boskenwyn Lad, Milo Kennedy on Goodluck Jonathon, Poppy Wilkinson on Amazing Mika and Hannah Burt on B Fancy.
Our other team, the Silent Knights, also did very well to take team 4th. They were Milo Kennedy on Fusions Detective, Ellie Clarke on Lady Tash, Christie Antoniou on Captain Hook and Georgia Toulson-Clarke on Sarolyna Equites.
Milo was individual 2nd on Fusions Detective, Hannah 3rd and Poppy 11th.
It was yet another win for the Wylye Winter Willberries in the 1.05m! Our other team, The Snowjumpers, were Milo, Ellie and Georgia and this time joined by Roberta Cameron-Rossiter on Romeo, also did very well to come team 2nd. Hannah did fantastically well to win the class, Tom came 4th and Georgia 5th.
Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all the parents and to the Avon Vale for an excellent two days jam-packed with competitors!

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.
