EUHPC Visits Olympia

Several members of EUHPC ventured out on a cold and chilly Sunday morning to visit Olympia, travelling up by coach from Billericay.

Everyone had a superb time shopping and watching the afternoon performances.

Thank you Laura Johns for organising it all











EUHPC 2107 Branch Show

Euhpc Branch show was held on Sunday 29th October, it was thrown together a bit last minute but sometimes that’s the best way!!

We had a good turnout, not masses but definitely enough

Due to the loss of the hour we dropped the tack and turn out and working hunter classes (they will be run at our open showing show in the spring ) but we did hold the fancy dress, show jumping and handy pony.

A great day was had by all and we finished nice and early as planned.

Thanks to all involved in the running, and all the helpers who were involved in the setting up and clearing up, many hands definitely makes light work!!


Introduction to Mounted Games

We had a introduction to mounted games rally today where we took some very enthusiastic riders through the basics of mounted games followed by a vaulting demonstration and lesson. To say we have some future stars is an understatement.

All of the riders gave 110%, listened, took on advice and achieved more than they thought they were capable of.

We hope they all took more away with them than sore faces from smiling so much.

We look forward to seeing you at the next session.



New B Testers

Euhpc have just got themselves 4 new B testers in the shape of Emma Philpott, Lauren Booth, Georgie Moody and Sammy Moody, a huge well done to all of you , its an amazing achievement.

Many thanks to Annette Philpott who put in so much time, and effort into their training, although we are sure they had far too much fun each time for it to be proper training!!


Everyone at Euhpc is really proud of you. !!

Halloween Rally

Great Halloween rally today, Thanks to our instructors Katie, Nancy , and Annette , who all taught fab x country or x country techniques lessons, the weather was very kind to us and the pill box, with a little work was transformed into a spooky bat/ spider cave complete with a hanging body, sculls and a couple of giant spiders, they had some fab slime to sick their hands into, sheeps eyes (lychees and jam) to eat, and some great traditional Halloween games, Lovely hot dogs thanks Alan!! And loads and loads of cake and sweets!! Thanks to Alan, Yasmin and Sally Bridge, and Sam Argent for all their help today


Cross Country Techniques Rally

Great Rally over the weekend, XC techniques is much more technical than height as the name suggests. We had some great combinations on the go today. Thank you so much Nettie for stepping in at late notice and bringing us all some new ideas greatly appreciated.
