TREWOLLAND CAMP 2016 - Written by Louise Tate

Another super and successful Pony Club Camp at Trewolland came to an end on the 14th August for 21 of our Junior and Intermediate Members.  The weather was fantastic and remained on side for everyone, the evenings were maybe a little chilly but the fun and laughter had by all (and the hot chocolate and marshmallows and midnight feasts of sweets) helped keep everyone warm and happy!

Lots of achievements were made across the groups and i hope everyone had an amazing time; the jumping lane was a particular highlight of the week and the musical finales to each camp were well choreographed and ridden!

The winners were as follows:

Junior Camp

Most Improved:  Josie Jackson

Stable Management:  Tiggie-Lou Witton

Best Pony:  Cherrypie (Kensa Cameron)

Intermediate Camp

Most Improved: Scarlett Gould and Kensa Benallick

Stable Management:  Tegann Greenaway

Best Pony:  Sage (Annabella Smith)

Once again a massive thank you to everyone that makes camp possible each year - our parents, grandparents, helpers, instructors, Emma and Danni and not least to Alison and Russell for hosting and the use of their facilities.

It is with sadness that this was our final year of holding camp and Trewolland and our hunt will be on to find a new location that will offer us the same wonderful experience as everyone has enjoyed at Alison's over the past years.


Max had a great three days at the tet champs in Yorkshire....
He had a great start to the competition with a shoot score of 900 and a swim of almost 8 lengths. Max and Roxy then tackled the very technical XC course which is always well up to height and came away with a lovely clear inside the time to gain maximum points.
The final phase of running was held today and as always Max posted a super fast run to complete the competion in 18th place.
This is an amazing result, well done Max and Roxy

Max Frost was on top form again achieving best shoot, run and swim to claim first place in the junior boys class. The East Cornwall team came 3rd, an amazing achievement in strong competition.
Max, Millie and Phoebe also competed in the XC with Phoebe having one of only two clear rounds of the day! Millie was 3rd in her class, Phoebe climbed up to 2nd after her super ride on Joey and Max held on to first place in the junior boys class. Team Frost also recieved 2nd in the team event. Huge well done!!


Two east Cornwall Prince Phillip Cup teams competed at Yealmpton Show yesterday and it was a closely fought competition with a number of races nearly ending in a tie for first place.

 Quite a challenge for a few of our junior riders who came along to make up teams but we're not familiar with the races but did very well. By the end of the competition literally a point separated each placing and our blue team came 3rd and the yellows 4th! You did your club proud! Well done!

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 Ė they were fantastic as it was a busy and hot day Ė the team came 3rd both in the competition and tack and turnout Ė 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 Bethís 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!
