Teams

Team Events

These team competitions are open to everyone, some events are better for first timers than others, please please message the coach if you have any questions.  When schedules come out, we will share, please contact relevant coach if you are entering.

Team Morale

In the interests of boosting team morale even further we would like team members to course walk together with our trainer, you are more than welcome to walk it more than once with parents or whoever you choose but please come to our course walk.

We realise that this is much easier to achieve at show jumping events, and understand that it might not always be possible eventing but being supportive of all team members is very important to our Pony Club.

Team Selection

Katie White is our showjumping coach and selector

Kate Whittaker is our selector for eventing.

Katie White /Kate Whittaker are the selectors for Dressage

 

Kate Hammond and myself are also heavily involved with organising teams and we will help wherever possible too.

Team selection is based on recent competition results and performance at team training.  It is not imperative that you attend team training as we understand people have other commitments  but if possible please do come along so that we can get to know you and your ponies better.

Please keep one of us updated on how you are getting on at competitions, we are quite good but we cannot be everywhere all of the time!!  We would like to hear all results good and bad – we understand that sometimes you or your pony have off days!

Area Teams

This year we would like to be competitive at Area Level again, and we all strongly feel that Area Teams are something special that you should all aspire to be in an Area Team.  So on that basis we will be entering a maximum of 2 teams per level with an individual or two as we feel worthy.  Team selection will be based on recent competition results and performance at team training.  Again It is not imperative that you attend team training as we understand people have other commitments  but if possible please do come along so that we can get to know you and your ponies better.

Please do not be disheartened if you are not selected for your chosen team.  You may even be asked to represent the Pony Club at a lower level than you think you are capable of achieving but sometimes it makes you, and your team even more competitive by doing so.

Please do not forget to let Kate Hammond have your completed team forms so that she can make entries swiftly and efficiently on your behalf.

Just a polite reminder that as entry fees are expensive for the Area Competitions,  All members will have to pay their own entry fees.   Once team selection has been finalised you will be able to pay on the online booking system as usual.

Finally thank you all very much for all your efforts and support to the Pony Club.  Lets go and have another great year.  See you all soon.

Lucie, Kate H, Katie P and Kate P
