Area eventing

It was a good day at Offchurch on Sunday 7th July for SOHC. 

Our Novice (PC90) team of Ruby, Elizabeth, Ruby and Isabel was 2nd overall and qualified for the Champs.  Isabel was 1st, Ruby 3rd and Mollie 5th in their sections. The XC proved to be the undoing of many teams and notably, all of our team members went clear and pretty much bang on the time too.  They really set the standard.
Amy Roberts who competed individually came 7th in her section and again was clear XC.
In the Intermediate (PC100) James and Connie competed as individuals.   James was sixth in his section and Connie 9th.  Again both did great XC rounds and only one pole each in the SJ so very strong results. 
















Area showjumping

A fun day was had at Attington on Saturday 22 June.  James and Gini jumped in a composite team in the Intermediate with just a couple of poles down.
Gini jumped very well in the Open and her composite team qualified for the Championships!
The novice team of Mollie, Ruby, Venetia and Elizabeth were 6th overall in a very close competition. It was just one pole that stopped the team jumping off for a place at the Champs.
Charlotte jumped two lovely rounds to gain a double clear as an individual.
Charlotte and Venetia both jumped off for an individual place at the Champs but were not in the qualifying placings

Well done all!











SOHC Rascals did us proud this weekend.  The team made up of Daisy M, Phoebe W, Florence W and Beli K came team 4th in the 50cm and team 2nd in the 60cm.  Well done!


















You can’t have missed the fact that equine flu has been playing havoc in the racing world and has had knock effects in other parts of the horse world too. Please check the individual policy of venues that you are competing or training at as many have differing guidelines. For pony club rallies the following applies:

‘It is important that you make sure that your ponies/horses are up to date with their vaccinations.  We ask that you do not attend any rallies until your ponies/horses are fully covered.  We will be checking passports and you can either bring your passports along to any rallies that you are attending or email them to me at least a week beforehand.  Any out of date or unvaccinated ponies/horses will not be able to take part in rallies. If you are unsure whether they are fully covered then please contact your vet for advice.

Please find attached guidelines from the BEF after the current outbreak of Equine Flu
