Centres Do Well on the day
A very successful Horse and Pony Care Competition was held at Pennant Park Centre September 5th hosted by Aberconwy Branch. Thank you to John Gilbert and his team for organising the day. It is a practical competition as much as a Quiz and the teams of 3 move round different “stations” which each have a particular topic. There are now three classes – Mini, Junior and Senior and the winner of each class go forward to the Final in Lutterworth, October 23/24th.
There were 2 Centres – Springbank (Tushingham) and Gorswen (Anglesey) and six Branches who took part (East Cheshire, Flint and Denbigh, Cheshire Hunt North, Anglesey, Aberconwy and Wynnstay). Well done to them for supporting this worthwhile competition.
- Mini Class – There were 10 teams entered. The highest placed branch was East Cheshire but the overall winner was Springbank Centre who was entering for the very first time. They were absolutely delighted to have done so well.
- Junior Class – 10 teams again. The winning team was Anglesey who will go forward but the 2nd placed team – Cheshire Hunt North has had an invitation too.
- Senior Class – just two teams (Wynnstay Branch and Gorswen Centre) and the result was very close, just a few points between them but the winning team was Gorswen.
Gorswen, a relatively small Centre on Anglesey, deserves a special mention as they put forward SIX teams on the day and had obviously done a great deal of preparation.
GOOD LUCK to all teams going forward to the Championship.
