Very well done to Bizzy, 5th on Noteworthy who qualifies for the Championships. Well done to all the team for all going clear cross country. Team 5th.

There were 17 teams in total including 3 from the HHPC. Team Casper – Millie, Harry, Issy and Tom came 6th, all clear cross country. Very well done to Izzy, Amity and Millie for coming 3rd, 5th and 8th respectively in their sections and qualifying individually for the Championships.

There were 29 teams in this section and it was very competitive. The HHPC fielded 3 teams and 1 individual in the PC 90 Open section which was new for this year. Very well done to Eugena 9th and Hannah 8th in their respective sections and to Team Taffy (Silvia, Georgie  Emma and Hannah  who came 9th. Very well done too, to Molly who came 5th in the PC 90 Open class and was the highest placed PC member enabling her to also qualify for the Championships.

Many congratulations and the very best of luck to our 5 members who are off to the Championships in August. Please make sure your entries are in as soon as possible!

We are delighted with the results and although for some the day did not go as well as hoped, everyone showed great sportsmanship and there was a fantastic team spirit which is really important. We are both extremely proud of all our competitors and we loved seeing lots of smiley, happy faces.

An enormous thank you must go to you parents who are the back bone of teams for being so supportive and helpful. From experience, we know that it is also the hard work that goes on behind the scenes that is just as important and we’d like to thank you all, very much, for immaculately turned out children and ponies.

Finally, a massive thank you to our 3 coaches, Simon, Adam and Polly who all did a sterling job warming everyone up, walking courses and being on hand to settle any last minute nerves and offering masses of encouragement and advice.

Well done to you all and enormous thanks from us both for making it a wonderful and happy day.


Bicester & Warden Hill PC ODE: Gawcott 17th June 2018

Well what a day we had at Gawcott!

Heythrop proudly had 15 riders competing at Bicester PC’s ODE earlier in June and what a day it turned out to be!

With amazing support (and equipment!) from trainer Polly Tompkins assisted by Milly Browne and Charlotte Campion, and our wonderful new DC’s Nicky Browne and Kate Campion,  the day was a very successful one!

In the 75cm Heythrop put out 2 full teams and 2 individuals and the results were impressive to say the least!

Gawcott is known for being a trappy cross country course and we had an abundance of clear rounds which helped the teams to 1st and 2nd place, with many individual rosettes as well.

75cm Teams

Team Heythrop White 1st (Frankie Fox, Charlie Smail, Angus Smail, Angelina Stich)

Team Heythrop Green 2nd (Charlie Thomas, Tilly Rees, Bertie Hall, Freddie Hall)

Bertie Hall 3rd

Charlie Smail 6th

Section B

Angus Smail 8th

Charlie Thomas 9th

Section C

Amelia Hall 1st

The 90cm brought different challenges from a tricky show jumping layout (especially for horses) and a challenging cross country ranging from trees in front of jumps and undulating country into water and over steps.

The 90cm team were placed 5th overall with some great individual performances.


Team Heythrop Gold 5th (Ella Goffe, Allegra Cowley, Silvia Irvine, Charlotte Shevket)


Section A

Silvia Irvine 3rd

Charlotte Shevket 9th

Section B

Ella Goffe 5th

Overall the event gave perfect preparation for the summer, with Area competitions on the horizon, and great to see such enthusiastic and strong HHPC performances.

All the riders were a credit to our Pony Club, not only in their riding, but in their conduct and sportsmanship.

We are well placed for the future and thanks you all involved!
