This event was held at the Duchy with the show jumping phase being held in the outdoor arena for a change and thankfully the weather was sunny and dry. As in previous CT's we were very fortunate to have Zoe Barwell judging the dressage and this time Caroline Wills judged the show jumping, both doing an excellent job and being very encouraging of the children.

The first class was the Walk and Trot test and 40cm jumping - this was won by Fleur Jackson who also took the best dressage rosette. 2nd was Daisy Swain, 3rd Ava O'Brien, 4th Darcey Goodman and 5th Josie Jackson.

In the second class (Grassroots and 60cm) Faith Davey won and also had the best dressage, 2nd was Florence Scard-Morgan and 3rd Erin Voysey.

In class 3 (Grassroots and 70cm) Faith Davey again won and took best dressage, in second place was Florence Scard-Morgan.

Class 4 (PC Novice Eventing and 75cm). 1st was Sydney Bond, 2nd Nicole Harding,3rd with best dressage was Isobel Thomas, 4th Beth Stephens and 5th Beth Witton.

Class 5 (PC Novice Test and 85cm) was the largest class of the day and was won by Tilly Bassett, 2nd Nicole Harding, 3rd Sydney Bond, 4th Isobel Thomas, 5th Freya Donaghy and 6th Beth Stephens with Holly Hale taking the best dressage.

Class 6 (PC Novice and 95cm). This class was won by Holly Hale, 2nd Tilly Bassett, 3rd Freya Donaghy with best dressage and 4th Amy Blake.

It was noted by Zoe that the dressage tests were well ridden particularly by those that were able to memorise them. Ponies and children were well turned out and all benefitted from being able to jump a second (practice) round of showjumps either at their class height or next height up which made for a great training experience. Class numbers were a little low and I would welcome suggestions to make this a bigger competition next time. Special thanks goes to all the parents who helped out with the running of the day and putting up and taking down of the showjumps. In particular, thanks to Lucy Scard-Morgan, Julie Swain, Marcia Voysey, Fiona Stephens, Sarah Martin and Julia Bassett.

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!


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.


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!
