Report for the Annual Show
Dear All
We’ve had a lovely day at the Annual Show at Westerfield Hall – thanks to Joy and Sylvia Partridge.
It was a great pity that more of our members chose not to attend as this is an important fundraiser for us and a lot of work goes into preparing and closing it down. Please remember this is your Pony Club and you do need to attend events!
A huge thanks to Lucy Sykes, Sally Haird, Tracy Sayer, Caroline Foster, Andy Burton and Hayden Sykes for all their hard work today and in the last few months. Also thanks to our judges Gill Lloyds, Jenny Pearson, Roy & Mary Dale, Ann Skeet, and Pippa Martin, to Paula Slater, Andy Burton, Mel & Lottie Alexander for stewarding and and Hayden the Minimus & Handy Pony; to Sally H, Issy and Caitlin Pugh for lunches, teas, coffees, cakes, to Nick Pope our paramedic – mercifully idle all day!; Joys Harris and Tyderman for the very exciting gymkhana, to Mary Thornley and her writer for taking so much time with our dressage riders and also a huge thank you to Lindsey Pearson for managing all things technical and for helping all day and with the take-down.
Another thanks to all those parents who helped taking down jumps and the tent at the end of the day which is very much appreciated.
And finally well down to all who took part today and especially the huge number of rosette and cup winners at the end of the day! The Fancy dress was probably the high point especially with Teasel and Belle turned pink!

Dear All
Despite an unexpectedly lot of rain – which made for a very wet course walk and a slippery 90 cm class, – Houghton has been great fun. The team of Megan Rodwell, Charlotte Long, Dulcie Wade and Charlotte Butler didn’t come anywhere in the 90cm although Dulcie had a lovely clear but in the 1m the same team came 5th despite several faults!!! Well done all and thanks to Briony and Emily for bringing them and to Sally Haird for her usual help.
Helena
 
Dear All
We’ve had a good day at Sotterely SJ today. Alice Cranfield on Billy came 6th individually in the 40cm (no team in that class) and both she and Sohia Kontofrios on the sometimes bucking Marble got 2xC in the 50cm. The 60cm team of Eva Cranfield on her new and lovely Fionn, Phia Waterer on Amber and Sophia K came 2nd with Phia 2nd individually. In the 70cm the team of Lily Waterer on Nico, Katie Rolph on Millie & Ruby Lubbock on Clarence came 2nd and Lene Kontofrios on Tiddles ( Blackbourne Harriet as advertised below!) came 6th individually. The 80cm team of Katie, Lily, Lene – this time on Liffey, and Ruby came 5th with Katie 5th individually.
So well done all and thanks to parents for taking them and as usual to Sally Haird for looking after Ring 2.
 
Now we just need some teams for Houghton…. 80cm, 90cm and 1m anyone???

Thanks to all

HT Times for website           Important notes re Hunter Trial classes

Dear All

Just back from the grassroots champs where our team of Ada Marson, Haydn Sykes, Perdi Ludgrove and Lolly Brown were doing Dressage,  SJ and Eventing. We have had great fun and the team came 9th in the dressage, Ada came 3rd in her section in the dressage and she also came 2nd in her section in the eventing which was really excellent.

Well done to all and to Mums and Dads for taking them!

Helena

 
 
Dear All
We’ve had a very exciting few days.
Firstly I’ve got a colt foal!!
Secondly everyone at the area Eventing rode brilliantly. It is possible that Easton peaked early as the stunning results we had in the warm-up tests where almost everyone in all teams was placed were not repeated so well in the main event! But conrats to Alice Hallows who won and qualified for the champs.
Thirdly junior camp was a huge success and a million thanks to Amy and Mel and Ben and Hugh and Lauren and Laura who were all so brilliant. Also to Cara for great lunches and to our instructors – Angie, Tina, James, Anne, Marie, Fran and Emma who all taught and participated brilliantly. And of course to all you parents who fetched and carried and set-up and cleared up so well. And thanks to anyone I haven’t mentioned due to my absence!
I gather the kids were all super, had great fun and all improved as well – an added bonus! Well done to Rebecca Emmins for winning the Camp Cup!
Helena

 

 

Dear All

As you can see from all the pics we have had a great senior camp. All the kids were utterly brilliant and brave and fun!

But these things don’t happen by magic and a HUGH thank you to Briony, Paula and Dom for running it so brilliantly. It worked well because of your hard work!

Also thanks to our instructors – Angie, Anne, Marie, Fran and Rachel and also to Debbie, Gill and Rose for all being patient and fun and instructive to/for these kids. Thanks to Sally, Julia T, Rebecca and all the other parents for all your help especially yesterday.
Thanks to Bo, Nathan and Jack at Poplar for providing a great venue and feeding us.

And finally thanks to parents for paying and bringing and to the children for being so great. I am so proud of you all!

Dear All
Due to hopelessness on my part I failed to report on the Area eventing at the weekend.
Firstly let me say that the courses were VERY challenging, the novices had to jumps logs into water – fences that wouldn’t really be in BE100’s and the Intermediates had to jump several BE Novice fences.
Anyway we didn’t come anywhere as teams but Tabby Wilson-Smith came 2nd in her Novice section, just missing out on qualifying for the Champs, Lily Waspe came 10th in hers, Tabby Wade did a fantastic double clear and would have been placed for sure except for Nellie’s disliking of dressage! And Milly Butters came 8th in her Intermediate section and Alice Hallows won the dressage in her section. While you all had sun we had torrential rain which only happened when our Intermediate teams were doing anything!
Well done to all.

We had a good day at the dressage today. Well done to the open team of Fish Clarke, Zara Lye, Isabella Stagg and Emma Freeman who qualified by coming 2nd and Zara was 4th and Isabella was 6th individually and 2nd in the warm-up test. The intermediate team of PipTaylor, Milly Butters, Ro W-S and Tessa Lye and individual Jasmine Slater were in our opinion robbed in the main event but Pip did brilliantly to come 3rd individually.

Thank to Emma Sayer for all your hard work on the entries and to Chris Haird, Julia Hicks, Debbie Verrill, Jo Cole and especially Julia Taylor for all your work on the scoring.

MOUNTED GAMES

Five excited girls took part in the Zone Finals of the Mounted Games in Warwickshire on Saturday along side 13 other teams. Parents scrubbed and polished before the tack and turn out, the girls looked fantastic despite the downpour and the result was a fantastic 2nd. Well done ‘Mum’s’! I wondered if we had the correct day for the Juniors,  the other teams looked so tall!  The girls all worked well as a team but didn’t manage to get in the ribbons. Well done to Lily Waterer, Eva Cranfield, Faith Rookyard, Ada and Eve Marston for reaching the finals and for giving 100% effort.

Many thanks to the parents for travelling all that way and camping in the rain!

Today the junior mounted games team of Eve and Ada Marson, Faith Rookyard, Lily Waterer and Eva Cranfield WON the areas AND came 2nd in tack and turnout. Brilliant.

 

Teams selections are posted on the Team Competitions page.

We’ve had a pretty good day at Gt Wichingham.

Easton won the 40cm with Lily and Fia Waterer, Eva Cranfield and Eve Marson with Cate Kerr as an individual. Cate came 3rd, with a 2x clear in a fast time -pretty good for a 6yr old! ( the child not the pony!), Lily was 4th, Fia was 5th and Eva was 6th. Eve did the fastest round in the jump-off but had unfortunately fallen off in the 1st round.

Easton won the 50cm with Faith Rookyard, Lily Waterer, Jasmine Price and Eva Cranfield. Fia and Eve were individuals and Jasmine came 2nd and Eve came 5th.

In the 60 cm we came 4th with Faith, Jasmine, Lily and Eve and Faith came 7th individually.

Only Ada did the 80cm and she had a stop in the jump-off, which was a pity because it was a good couple of rounds.

In the 90cm Ro W-S, Tabby W-S and Caitlin Pugh came 6th and in the 1m the same team came 3rd with Caitlin 3rd and Tabby 5th.

A pretty good day and great weather. Eve Marson gets my vote for grit and determination – she fell off maybe 3 or 4 times but got straight back up each time and finished the course with gusto. Cocos was very naughty and keep thinking the grass looked more interesting than the course!

 Well done to all and thanks to the parents and Sally for making my job so easy!

 ONE DAY EVENT 

Dear All

Thank you all so much for coming to our ODE at Poplar Park on a day of intermittent hail and sun! I’m sorry if as a rider you were caught participating in the hail but that’s eventing for you.

 Can I say a heartfelt thank you to all our jump judges, dressage judges and writers, SJ judges, course builders, stewards, commentators, scorers, timers, Issy Pugh for the teas, coffees, cakes and all round help – so sorry about the tent!, starters, collecting ring stewards, arena party and Mike Lloyds. And any one I’ve missed out. Competitors you might not realise what a huge volunteer army is required to run the event and you were all sterling. Also of course thank you to any helpers who arrived to do one thing and I put you onto something else! Finally thanks to the parents who brought all the children although we had a lot of adults who probably brought themselves!

 Easton Harriers have run an excellent event despite my inefficiencies!

 Well done to all.

HUNTER TRIAL 

Dear All

We’ve had a pretty good day at the Hunter Trial at Poplar Park today and a great day at the first phase of the Tet at Fram College on Friday.and thank you all for coming to both. Firstly I’d like to say thank you to all our Tet helpers on Friday, our Jump Judges, Scorers, Timers, Starters, Course Builder, Secretaries, Commentators, Quad bike rider, Collecting Ring Stewards, Coffee and Tea Dispenser and cake makers, Lunch Makers and Junior Tet party for all your help today. Obviously we cannot do this without you and I especially appreciate the time you all give since we’re about to ask for it all again for our ODE in a few weeks! Thanks to you all. Pip Taylor deserves a special mention because she helped hugely both on Friday and today as well as competing on both days. Hopefully I haven’t missed anyone – if so I’m very sorry.

 Well done to all the competitors and many thanks to all the Mums and Dads who brought everyone there. Click here for results Hunter Trial Results Spring 16

NEW HAT RULES A reminder that there are new rules about which hats may be worn for Pony Club from Jan 2016. We will be re-checking and tagging all hats and no member whose hat does not meet the rules will be allowed to ride. Please check all your hats and make sure that they show at least one of the labels pictured here. (Its OK if they also have the old EN1384 as long as it is accompanied by one of the new ones.) PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RULES PREVIOUSLY SHOWN HERE EXCLUDED PAS015:1998. That was INCORRECT. PAS015:1998 & 2011 are both acceptable. Apologies for any confusion this may have caused. The chart below was sent by our area representative, Clare Valori, today and is definitely correct.

HUNTER TRIALS 

Dear All

Firstly can we say thank you to all the volunteers who came and jump judged and stewarded and commentated etc at our Hunter Trial yesterday. We had a lovely day with relatively few thrills and spills. And the weather was perfect. Thanks to all those who participated. It was a pity that were so few pony club members participating…Please click here for the results.

 Good Luck to those at the NSEA tomorrow and I’ll see quite a lot of you at the rally. I hope the Marsons can get there after the lorry drama of yesterday!

 I really need people to come and help paint on Thursday. It’s gone very quiet..

CHAMPIONSHIPS  – from Helena

Monday: back from the champs which was great fun. Alice Hallows did 2 lovely show jumping rounds but not good enough however she did come 6th in the Equitation which is judged on style and riding so that was brilliant. Emma Sayer, Megan Hammond and Francesca Aitchison were our Horse and Pony care team and they came 9th. So a pretty good weekend all round. Well done to all and as usual to the parents who hauled themselves, kit, ponies and children across the country into the pouring rain.

 So.. We’re at the champs. First of all novice eventing, Tessa Lye and Milly Butters did nice dressages, both clear SJ and then onto XC. It was a full-on rideable but solid course causing quite a few problems, for example the water – sponsored by Blue Loos was blue – really blue. Milly went first and Eric jumped everything beautifully, but he was surprised by the blue water and stopped dead and Milly popped out over his shoulder. She jumped up and was back on in a trice and she finished including a fall with only 1.2 time penalties. Tessa did a super and very fast clear and came 12th on her dressage score. The intermediate dressage team also did well with team coming 12th and Isabella Stagg and Pip Taylor coming 8th, Daisy Pitt was 12th and Charlotte Long was 17th. So a pretty good day. 

Previously….at the Tetrathlon Champs in Yorkshire. Pip came 34th and Jasmine came 84th out of 120. Both had clear rounds in the XC and only half the competitors made it round so very well done to you both.

TEAMS 

The Bloom Cup teams are as follows

Seniors: Thomas Manning, Caitlin Pugh, Megan Hammond and Tabby Wilson-Smith with Lottie Fairs is an individual. 

Juniors: Andy Taylor, Haydn Sykes, Lilly Waspe and Fleur Ludgrove with Charlotte Butler is an individual.

JUNIOR CAMP 

Well done to everyone for a brilliant camp! Kids you were amazing and so well-behaved. Parents you were amazing and so well behaved! And of course all our thanks to Lisa and Julia, Laura and Lauren, Sally and the kitchen team and everyone else who helped.

Great 2 weeks.

Helena

CAMP 

Dear All

Thank you all so much for being such great kids at camp and making it all run smoothly and I think being so much fun. Despite a few spills it went well pretty largely because Briony, Paula and Dom with Emma and Laura were so brilliant and many thanks to them. Thanks also to all the parents who helped with cooking, ferrying, changing ponies, riding out,  and generally providing us with great kids. Also of course thanks to the instructors who came all week and to Issy Paul and Mike Daniell who saved the day with stables. Gary Sykes brilliantly solved the kitchen crisis and of course AJ provided the venue. The Pony Club is at its best when everyone helps and this week was great.

Next week we’ve got the juniors…..

and FUN DAY for the younger members is on 27th Aug and I need older members to run this… Please sign up.

ANNUAL SHOW  

Dear All

Thank you all for turning up on a somewhat dismal summer day for the show which went very well with NO falls!!! Most of the competitors had a fun day with or without the rosettes.

The committee and indeed all those who took part would like especially to thank all the volunteers and helpers we had yesterday. Without dressage writers, course builders, arena parties, ring stewards, gymkhana organisers, judges, minimus teams, cooks and the show committee who organised everything then none of this could happen. And not forgetting the rotary club helpers and the die-hards who put all the jumps away at the end of the day. Thank you so much to all and I hope I haven’t forgotten anybody.

Thank you to Helena and the committee for arranging my retirement party and to those who came or sent good wishes. I was completely overwhelmed by the evening. So many friends from my years of involvement with the branch. I am sorry I was not at my best but the wine kept my voice going. Many had travelled long distances including both our families from Somerset. The speeches were excellent and I shall look forward to the delivery of the reclining chair. The photograph album caused great amusement to the family.

Thank you again and I hope I will see you all at events and shows this year. With best wishes Gill
