Eggesford Tetrathlon

Seven East Cornwall members took part in this event last weekend. Kensa Bennallick, Tamsin Morris and Hollie Jenkins competed in the mini girls class with Kensa having a great shoot of 700 and a PB in her run and swim. Tamsin had a good swim and this was Hollie's second competition and improved in all phases. Phoebe Frost, Demelza Morris and Lucie Jones competed in the junior girl class, which is always very competitive. Phoebe had a good run and swim and Demelza, who hasn't competed for a while worked really hard in her run and swim. This was Lucie's first triathlon and she was amazing swimming over 6 lengths. Max, as always, was the star of the show! Max competed in the junior boy class scoring a shoot of 800 an amazing run of 5.10 and a PB in his swim going well over 8 lengths to win first place. Well done Max! Phoebe and Kensa completed the event on the following day with the XC. Due to a mix up  poor Kensa was unable to complete the XC but in true East Cornwall style was there to encourage Her teammate. Phoebe had a super speedy clear around the  big 90 course on the fabulous Joey to finish in fith place. Well done to all.

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 Beth’s 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!
