Riders must be Members of an Area 6 Branch of The Pony Club. Open to any horse/rider combination at any level. Riders may ride more than one horse at any or the same level as each horse/rider combination will be awarded points separately.






Area 6 Eventing League Points will be awarded to each horse/rider combination as follows:

All Competitors:

Finished on Dressage Score – 10

Double Clear (with time pens) – 5

Clear SJ only (with/without time pens) – 2

Clear XC only (with/without time pens) – 2


Placed Competitors:

Double points will be awarded for Area Competition Sections.

Points will be awarded solely to the finishing place within Area 6 entries. For example should an Area 6 Member finish 2nd to a non-Area 6 member, the Area 6 member would receive the points for first place. This will also be the case in mixed sections of Pony Club and Non Pony Club Members.

All points will be allocated by the League Manager under the scrutiny of The Area Rep.

At the end of The League Series the winner from each height section will be the horse/rider combination with the most points. In the event of a tie the combination with the greatest points accumulated from The Area Competition Sections will be deemed the winner.

The Area Branch League will be determined by the addition of all the points from individuals representing that branch across all four levels, PC80, 90, 100 and 110cms.

Further details regarding Awards will be released during the coming months.

Novice Eventing Team 2017

Frankie Maw rode her gelding Major today, as a representative for our branch, as part of our Novice Eventing team, here’s her personal roundup.

“So, so, so, proud of major today. 5th at area eventing. We had a double clear and was just 2 seconds too slow. Plus a great dressage score of 34.6. I cannot believe how much he’s grown up this past year. Well done to the rest of the team you guys were amazing. Bring on next year.”

Evie-Mai Carolan rode her pony Livvy.

“Once again Livvy being a star at our first area eventing together, had a great start with a good dressage test scoring 31.5% then the last one down in the showjumping, 1 refusal on the cross country with a few time penalties. Well done to the rest of the team and thank you Claire for taking me! Good luck to the grassroots team tomorrow!!!!”

Georgia Wright rode Dollar

“Dollar did a very nice test, scoring 29 and was then clear in the show jumping. Unfortunately we had an unusual stop in the xc so unfortunately no placing this time around“

Charlotte Wolstenholme rode Mac

“We attained a good 31.8% dressage then had 2 down in the SJ. Unfortunately we had a fall in the XC, you can carry on if you fall in a PC event, so I then completed the rest of the course with extreme determination and only 0.4 time faults and finished on a cricket score of 124”

Our girls are super in all ways, Very Well done!

Joe Dowse on Buddy won, yes won, the Novice championships in Cheshire, This I believe is a first for Scunthorpe and for Area 6, what an achievement to come out top of all the novice eventers in all of the other pony clubs, its mind blowing, Joe was 4th after dressage and then jumped clear show jumping and clear round a big, technical cross country course to move himself in to the lead, and into a position that he could not be beaten. This is quite amazing knowing what Buddy has been through and Buddy is now 21 years old this was his swan song as now he is going back to his former owner Charlotte Torr (past member ) he is going to be semi retired as Charlotte intends to ride and maybe hunt him. Happy retirement Buddy and thank you for what you have done for the Pony Club.


Novice Eventing Championships – Joe’s report.


Anna’s report on her and Nics day at area eventing championships

After a week of torrential rain, the morning of the area eventing dawned fine and dare we say, even sunny! Poor Nic was up even before the dawn I think, her first dressage test was something like 8.30! The ponies all behaved in the dressage and we were rewarded with good scores for all 3 tests. I shot off to run round the cross country while nic showjumped and cross countried Toto, having just one pole in the showjumping, and going clear in the time xc. After walking the cross country I was all set to withdraw, there was one section that was very muddy at the start of the course and I didnt want to slip. However on the way back to my box I walked past Nic and Jo, who told me there was absolutely no way they were going to let me withdraw, Nic said she had no problems on Toto and Louis had had enough of posey dressage and deserved a nice jump around! So they changed my mind, and I can honestly say I would not have done it without them! So we wandered up to the showjumping with Nic and Rocco where they both jumped clear rounds, and headed straight back to the cross country. After a pep talk from Nic, she headed off to jump clear in the time, then Louis and I jumped around clear for just 3 time faults, totally my fault for taking a rather scenic route to the last fence! When the results came out, Nic was 3rd on Rocco in her section, I had WON my section on Louis an qualified for the championships (!!!) and Nic was 7th on Toto, just one place out of qualification. Louis and I were also presented with the trophy for the best dressage! We had a fab day and the organisers did so well to keep the event running, it must have been difficult, especially when all events round the rest of the country had been abandoned!
