Pony Club Area Showjumping 2017

On Sunday 9th July 11 Newmarket and Thurlow members travelled to Trinity Park, Ipswich to take part in the Area 8 Showjumping competition. Once again it was a very early start with most of us arriving by 6.30am in order to get our ponies ready for the dreaded tack and turnout competition.

The Intermediate Team (100cm) was Belinda Dow, Freia Gould, Scarlett Ryder and Billy Vestey.  They won first place in the Tack and Turnout which was an amazing achievement.  In the jumping Belinda achieved a fantastic double clear round and overall the team finished the day in 10th place.   The Novice (90cm) A team consisted of Zara Brooks, Sally Hancock, Grace Hull and Tilly Salmon while the B Team was Katie Beaton, Annabel Cuthbert and George Hull (all of whom achieved 29/30 in the T&T).  Special mention must go to Zara and Tilly who achieved an incredible full marks for T&T!   The B Team were very first in to jump at 8.30am and Annabel and George both achieved clear rounds.  They each had an unlucky pole in the second round.

The Novice A Team achieved four double clear rounds, the only team out of 28 to do so on the day. Unfortunately there was some confusion over the timing of the 3rd round jump off and Zara was the first to go having not had the opportunity to learn the course.  The day finished brilliantly however with Grace, Sally and Tilly all achieving a triple clear.  This put them into 2nd place overall and meant the Team qualified for the National Pony Club Showjumping Championships in Cheshire in August.

Huge thanks must go to Fiona Van Tuyll for all her magnificent help with the T&T and much appreciated support throughout the day.   As ever John Adams’ help in course walking, warming up and general encouragement and motivation was invaluable.   And a very big thankyou to Ginny and Tessa who came at the crack of dawn and were wonderful throughout the day; providing practical help, support and much needed wine. A final thank you to all the lovely parents and children who were wonderful at cheering each other on and making it such a happy day – a credit to the Pony Club.

FTSJ Sottersley 2017

Sunday, May 21st, 2017 saw four Newmarket & Thurlow members take part in a “Friendly Team Show Jumping Competition” kindly hosted by the Waveney Harriers at Sottersley, Nr Beccles. The team, jumping at 60cm & 70cm, consisted of Lara Bowman, Lucy Chaplin, Paddy Ferguson and Max Woods. Although the team didn’t return home with ribbons a good day was had by all with plenty of clear rounds. Every competitor got to ride 2 rounds in each class with the second round being a slightly shorter timed round. Riding improvements were made throughout the day and encouragement and support from the hosts managing the arena contributed to a stress free day. It was a long drive to Sottersley but well worth attending again in 2018.










Burghley Pony Club Team Show Jumping

N&T placed 2nd at Burghley Pony Club Team Showjumping

On Thursday 1st September, Sarah Howlett, Belinda Dow, Lily Bravery and Billy Vestey represented the Newmarket and Thurlow Pony Club at the prestigious Burghley Pony Club Team Showjumping Competition at the Burghley Horse Trials.  The fences were 1.05m in the first round with the jump off 1.10m.

The team got off to a fantastic start with Sarah, Belinda and Billy achieving wonderful clear rounds and Lily having an unlucky pole.  N&T were one of only three teams to end the first round on a team score of zero.   There were a huge number of teams taking part and with the course causing lots of problems, this was an amazing achievement.

The jump off was extraordinarily challenging with not only enormous fences but a circuitous route and some tricky turns.  With the spectator stands full and against the backdrop of Burghley House, the pressure was on.  The jump off at Burghley is unusual in that the riders in the participating teams jump one from each team rather than consecutively.  Sarah was the first to go and achieved another beautiful clear round.  Belinda had a pole and Lily two and by the time Billy’s turn came, the position of the other teams was such that N&T were fighting for first or second place.   The atmosphere was electric with the commentator announcing that it was all down to Billy!  He rose to the challenge and rode magnificently, just catching a pole at the very last fence with N&T ending up second.  The Team’s grace under pressure was extraordinary.

The result was all the more fantastic given that both Billy and Belinda were on youngsters on whom they were completing their first season.  Lily’s was also a new partnership while Sarah was on her sister’s horse.   As always, huge thanks goes to John Adams for his expert guidance and positivity on the day.
