NORTH CORNWALL TRIATHLON - by Kathy Treleaven

A fantastic day for our Triathletes with some fabulous results!

Tamsyn Morris, Florence Scard Morgan and Isabelle Sutton competed in the mini girls class.  Tamsyn did a super shoot of 700, Florence ran a great race, finishing in 5m 30s, which was amazing as the going was very muddy and wet.  Isabelle swam well ahead of the other girls in her heat to secure a super score of 4.2 lengths.  No placings this time for the girls but some fantastic team spirit and a great day was had by all.

Demelza Morris, Kensa Benallick and Phoebe Frost competed in the large junior girls class where they all posted super shooting and swim scores.  Kensa improved her swim by almost 1 length which is an amazing achievement.  Phoebe had a super day with a good run and swim to finish in 3rd individually which earned her a place at the National Triathalon Championships in March at Milton Keynes.  Our East Cornwall Team of Demelza, Kensa and Phoebe were also placed 8th.

Well done girls - you were amazing. 



Devon and Somerset Triathlon

Six members travelled to Wellington on Sunday to compete in this competition.

Millie and Tamsyn competed in the mini girls class, Millie had a super swim of 4.14 and Tamsyn shot an amazing 600 which was a PB    for both girls. Millie also had a good run to be awarded 5th overall.

Kensa, Demelza, Hollie and Phoebe competed in the junior girls class. This was Kensa and Hollie's first time in this class and they both were amazing - shooting on a turning target, an increase in the run and swim ment they had to work really hard, they did not disappoint and posted some great results.

Demelza and Phoebe have both been training hard, Demelza had a PB in the run and swim to finish in 5th place and Phoebe had  a 900 shoot and a super swim to achieve PB's in both of these phases too. Phoebe was placed 3rd in this class, what an awesome achievement!

In the team event Tamsyn, Demelza and Hollie were placed 2nd.

A huge well done to everyone.

E TEST RESULTS

On Saturday 10th December, 4 of our Junior Members successfully achieved their E Test achievement badges.  They have been working towards them for a little while and Mandy confirmed they had passed with flying colours.  'E' test riders should be able to walk and trot on the lead rein and they should also know basic points of the pony and tack.

Congratulations to Josie Jackson, Gracie Hoare, Charlotte Hoare and Amalie Rundle - Well done all.


CHRISTMAS SHOW JUMPING RESULTS

A sunny day made for perfect weather for this open show and helped to attract a large number of entries (30 in some classes).  Ponies and riders were decked out in tinsel and Christmas costumes and created a festive atmosphere.  We were able to have all 3 arenas at the college and were therefore able to put on clear round jumping - many thanks to Isobel Thomas for manning this for much of the day.  Special rosettes were awarded for fancy dress to Holly Hale and Rowan Caunter.  A huge thanks to Gail Hooper for judging - with regular course changes and creative use of the jumps which tested horse and rider combinations.



Thank you also to Marcia Voyzey for 1st Aid, Ollie Bassett as Judges helper, Tracey Baker, Julia Bassett, Vicky Ham, Fiona Stephens and many, many more parents who kindly gave up their time to make this a very successful day making in excess of £300 for the club.

JUNIOR CHRISTMAS PARTY - By Julie Swain


The Juniors had wonderful fun at the Xmas party, fantastically led by the fabulous Mandy Basire.  There was apple bobbing, marshmallows, jokes, Granny's footsteps - all accompanied by lots of giggling and smiley faces.  The ponies were all very well behaved and seemed to enjoy the fun too!  The fancy dress was phenomenal.  WE had Mrs Claus, Snowmen, Father Christmas, Elves, Reindeer and Christmas presents - everybody put in so much thought and effort into the fabulous costumes - as is shown in the picture!  The winners of the fancy dress were Millie Frost and Fleur Jackson, although the judge commented on how difficult it was to choose winners as they were all fantastic!

There was also a special guest who came to visit......Father Christmas.  The children heard his bell ringing and were really excited when he came into the school with a reindeer, 2 elves and a sack full of presents.  The children loved seeing him and talking to the elves and reindeer (who were very well behaved).

The food (Supplied by parents) was really tasty and a great time was had by all.  A very big thanks to all those costume designers, chefs and of course Mandy and the wonderful father Christmas and his amazing Elves.  You really made the party so special - we can't wait for next year!


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!
