AREA PRINCE PHILIP CUP MOUNTED GAMES

Thankfully the persistent drizzly rain didn't dampen any of the teams competitive spirits at this years Area 16 Prince Philip Cup mounted games competition. It was East Cornwall Hunt Pony Club's turn to host and we thank Mr Tony Jope for allowing us to use Keason Farm, our usual field was perfect for the games.
East Cornwall had 3 Senior teams and 1 Junior team,
The Blues - Flo Wickham, Tilly Bassett, Megan Busby, Sydney Bond & Demelza Morris.
The Yellows - Abi Baker, Phoebe Frost, Max Frost, Holly Hale & Bethany Stephens
The Whites - Evie Baker, Macy Simpson, Annelie B'mhand, Tegenn Greenaway & Kathryn Coleman.
Junior blues - Erin Voyzey, Tamsyn Morris, Rosie Busby, Scarlett Gould & Millie Frost.
All the teams put up great competition, there was lots of support from the sidelines & within the teams, despite the cold wet weather making it very hard for the children's hands to grip anything, they kept going!
The scores were tight & after having to run a nerve wrecking spare race between senior East Cornwall Yellows & Four burrow for 2nd & 3rd places the results were as follows..
Seniors
1st - South Devon West A
2nd - East Cornwall Yellows
3rd - Four Burrow Hunt
4th - East Cornwall Blues
5th - East Cornwall Whites
6th - Little Margate + Tack & Turnout winners
7th - Tetcott and South Tetcott
8th - South Devon West B

Our junior side beat the 2nd place opponents by only one point !!
Juniors
1st - East Cornwall
2nd - Little Margate + Tack & Turnout winners
3rd - Tetcott and South Tetcott

Caroline Chadwick, the Chief Steward from PC HQ commented on the very high standard of Tack & Turnout and was pleased with the days Games.
The first three qualify to compete at the zones, Sunday 26th June at Taunton racecourse & the top six from the Senior competition have qualified for the Cornish Mounted Games competition to be held at Royal Cornwall Show, Friday 10th June.
Although we were disappointed to not have all three of our teams get to the zones, I hope you will all wish our Yellows every success at the Zones competition at the end of June. They now have 7 weeks to learn 9 races, some old, some completely new!
All in all the day was a great success & we had a great day.  On a personal note I would like to say huge THANK YOU's to everyone who played a part in the day.


LYNEHAM HOUSE TEAM SHOW JUMPING

I am a very proud team showjumping organiser - 10 members ventured out in awful weather today to represent the club at Lyneham House - well done to Tiggy Lou Witton and Isobel Sutton who joined forces with another club in Class 1 to come 4th as a mixed team! Rosie Busby went to defend her Pongo cup and came away with it for another year! Kizzie Witton also came 3rd in that class. Tiggy Paton (on Beths Ollie), Bethany Stephens, Holly Reid and Evie Baker took the ribbons, sashes and cup in Class 2 with some fab riding from all. Megan Busby and Abi Baker also joined forces with another club for Class 4 (Megan borrowing mum and granny's horses to ride twice) in what was a very beefy course.  They competed in heavy rain and wild winds to come away with a well deserved 4th! So proud of you all - smiling all the way through and cheering each other on.  Great team spirit!

Junior Un-mounted Rally

The Juniors have been learning all about show jumping etiquette.  As part of their unmounted rallies we are practicing how to jump correctly.  They all loved pretending to be horses, jumping around the sand school, under the excellent instruction of Mandy Basire.  The aim is to then bring their newly developed skills into practice at the next mounted rally.  Great fun was had by all. 

Busy Bank Holiday weekend.....

A busy weekend ahead..... Best of luck to all our PPC members taking part in the area games tomorrow.  1 junior and 3 senior teams.... Great representation for the club.  Race well and bring home the ribbons for EC.  Monday brings Lynham House team sj and team SJ in association with the PC and British SJ, so members have had a tough choice to make in which event yo choose.  Lynham House is a super event which has been well supported with again with plenty of members supporting this wonderful event.  It is a tough course but do your best to bring home a cup between you.  Look forward to seeing all the results!
