Please support The East Essex Pony Club in hosting The Gosling Cup 2020. The Gosling Cup is a well-established and long-running competition, unique to Area 8 run by volunteers and relying on
fund raising and sponsorship.
This competition was the brainchild in 1945 of the late Mrs MS Gosling, the then District Commissioner of the East Essex Hunt Pony Club, for her own branch and for teams from four adjacent branches. Mrs Gill Lyster, daughter of the late Mrs Gosling, presents the Cup annually.
Rachel Gosling and her contemporaries were concerned about varying standards within the Pony Club in the early years after the war, and the original competition included turnout to help raise those standards, individual ride – today’s dressage, showjumping and handy hunter – our cross country. Gymkhana events rounded off the day but this was long ago dropped in favour of a team ride.
Truly a blueprint for the present form of a one-day event, the success of The Gosling Cup over the past seventy years has led to a refinement of the rules, and an expansion in the number of competitors, as it now involves up to twenty five teams of four members from invited Pony Club Branches in Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
Each Pony Club takes it in turn to host The Gosling Cup and it’s the turn of our Pony Club in 2020, we have already started fund raising but still need to raise enough money to cover the costs of running the event. Please visit our easyfunding page at and click ‘support us’

We are looking for Sponsors to help with this so if you would like to sponsor/donate to this event for the children we would love to hear from you.
