WELCOME TO NEW JUNIOR MEMBERS

A warm welcome to Scarlett and Florence Moore, Emma Davey, Monty Wickham, Darcey Goodman and Talula Stacey. There are lots of fun things for junior members and we really look forward to seeing you all at the forthcoming rallies. 

It is really refreshing to have so many younger members starting the club.........they are our stars of the future so watch this space!



ECHPC 2016 Presentation Winners

Another excellent presentation evening-   Before the 'official' proceedings started we had the Cha Cha slide! -  Mums, Dads and children all up on the dance floor - sliding to the left, 2 hops this time!! to get the evening started.

We had a lovely welcome by our new Secretary Fiona Stephens and new DC Sarah Martin who did an amazing job on the microphone. Our outgoing secretary Julia Basset did a warming handover to Fiona and as Fiona noted she has 'very big shoes to fill'. We would all agree the passion, time, commitment and drive Julia has given the club has been second to none and the good news is we won't let her go anywhere!!!! Another big thanks to Margaret Best our outgoing DC who has been a back bone for the club supporting all members at all events. We welcomed in our new chief instructor, Caroline Wills who you will all be seeing lots of in the near future and thanked Mandy Brasire who had retired from the role this year. 

Tracey Baker gave a comprehensive rendition of the years events highlighting some of the key events from grassroots, triathlons, tetathrlons to area competitions. What was very apparent was the variety, diversity and breadth of activities and events our members take part in and the time commitment and effort they each put in. 

It was great to so many children, parents and friends attending the evening and many well deserved awards presented. Sadly, Mandy Brasire our Junior instructor was ill but she had written a lovely speech for her 'Marvels' and they were presented with 'Mandy's Marvels' rosettes. New for this year was the 'new Members' rosettes where each new member was presented with a rosette welcoming them into the club.

Their was lots of food and puddings,  big thanks to Su Congdon for organising the venue food and entertainment. Marcia did a fantastic raffle with everyone dashing for the prizes. After the formal proceedings the disco started with many children both big and small dancing the night away! One of the great things about our club is that the big ones really look after the little ones and that was clear to see. We are a big club with a lot of different activities but the children really show team work, kindness, and a willing to cheer each other on and celebrate each members success. Such life skills that will take them far!

Over all, a fun night was had by all. A big thanks to all the committee who as always give so much to support these events. Roll on next year.....A big Welcome to Fiona and Sarah let the fun begin......

EGGESFORD TRIATHLON By Kathy Treleaven

We had 6 members competing at this event yesterday posting some awesome results!  Unfortunately the swim was cancelled due to a faulty pump in the pool so the event became a shoot and run event.

Holly Reid competed in her first ever triathlon and proved tobe an absolute superstar in the run phase completing the 1000m course in a super fast 3mins 55sec.  This gained the best run in the class and she finished in 5th place individually.  GO HOLLY!!!

In the mini girls class, Isabel and Tamsyn also had a good day with Issy shooting a super 760 and also posting a fast run to finish in 5th place individually.  Tamsyn had been unwell but was still willing to compete fopr her team with a good shoot of 640 and a good run.  Holly, Issy and Tamsyn were awarded 9th place in the team competition.

The very competitive Junior girls class was as popular as ever with lots of strong athelets entered.  Kensa has also been really poorly but, as always, she was determined to compete and cheer her team mates on.  Hollie had only competed a few times and is improving her performance each time, she had a good run and shoot.  Demelza had a super day shooting a good 700 and then running a super fast 1500m on a very soggy course to finish in 3rd place.

WELL DONE EAST CORNWALL

Area Dressage - Written by Tracey Baker

An amazing number of members attended on Sunday 17th July to compete at three different levels.

Our 10 years and under competing in the walk and trot junior class they were fantastic as it was a busy and hot day the team came 3rd both in the competition and tack and turnout for some members this was one of their first competitions and Daisy Swain and Florence Scard-Morgan were confident and enjoyed the experience. Ella Glennon came 3rd individually.

Moving onto the Grassroots competition we had 5 teams entered (20 members) and the effort in presentation and preparation was outstanding. Our younger team known as the dressage divas Erin Voyzey, Millie Frost, Rosie Busby and Holly Reid did well coming 7th. Macy Simpson, Steph Bennison, Mary Nason and Ella Glennon came first with Steph Bennison being first individually in her arena. Evie Baker, Tilly Basset, Megan Busby and Tamsyn Morris came 3rd with Megan Busby first individually. Bethany Stephens, Tegenn Greenaway, Holly Hale and Kathryn Coleman came 10th an huge effort bearing in mind Holly and Kathryn had only got back from a school trip at 3am and Beths pony had not travelled well. Our final team of Katie Flanagan, Hannah Bragg, Isobel Sutton and Florence Scard-Morgan did exceptionally well only just missing out on qualification. The top 10 teams qualified for the Regional Championships being held at Bicton Arena on the 3rd September and indications are all teams will be attending.

Finally we had two novice teams. Abi Cox, Abi Baker, Isobel Thomas and Sydney Bond came 2nd as a team with Sydney and Abi Cox second individually. There was some confusion over results which were resolved. Our remaining team of Demelza Morris, Ollie Bassett, Phoebe Frost and Florence Wickham were not placed but some excellent riding and Florence Wickham deserves a special mention as she filled the space at very short notice the Friday before the competition and was not familiar with the test and came 2nd in her arena.

Well done to all!
