We had a lovely day hosted by the Burton Cheshire Forest Branch of the Pony Club at Dee Farm on the Wirral and run by John Gilbert very efficiently with humour and enthusiasm. We had free drinks and cake all afternoon and during that nerve wracking time while waiting for our results we had a superb dressage to music demonstration from Helen Dutton, not on her big dressage horse but on a lovely Welsh cob that had been bought at Beeston! It would be wonderful if we could all turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse!
Both senior and junior competitions were won by the Berwyn and Dee Pony Club which has only 37 members most of whom are in the youngest age group. The senior team of Lily Wakefield, Lauren Lawley and Sian Williams who have two D+ tests and a C between them did well to answer questions at B test standard. The junior team “The Happy Gang” of Sian Evans, Emily Martin Jones and Aimee Davies were thrilled to win against stiff opposition. Well done Berwyn and Dee Pony Club and Good Luck at the Champs.
Second Placed team was Dwyfor – another very small Branch, Cheshire Hunt North Tigers took 3rd, 4th (Lions) and 5th (Leopards) places and WWW were 6th. Well done all for taking part.
Huge Congratulations to Berwyn and Dee Branch for winning the Junior class at the Horse and Pony care competition on Sunday at Dee Farm, Heswall.
They will be joining their Senior team who are off to the Champs too!
Good Luck to them!
Well done to their trainer Mary Evans and a big Thank you to John for organising a well run competition!
Thanks … Meg Green – Area 5 Representative
