GRASSROOTS REGIONAL SHOW JUMPING - Bicton Arena

04/09/16 A better day weather wise today for the Pony Club Regional Show jumping final. 26 teams competed. Our team Tilly Bassett on Bella, Macy Simpson  on Foley, Steph Bennison on Woody and Katie Flanagan on Max rode a wonderful first round to go through to the 2nd round on 0 penalties.

The course builder then put in a bogey fence which caught many out in round two.. only one team finished on 0 faults, 6 teams on 4 faults and 5 teams on 8 faults. ECHPC finished on 8 faults coming just outside the rosettes with a very respectable 11th place. A great result which such a large field.

All double clears then jumped off against the clock for individual placings. There were 24 to jump off. The 1st 3 placings finished with less than a second between them with Katie leading until the 3rd to last rider, when she was beaten by 0.6 of a second.  Massive Congratulations to Katie and Max on coming second - Report by Juliette Flanagan



GRASSROOTS RDRESSAGE FINAL - Bicton Arena

03/09/16 On a rather blustery and at the end very wet day 4 teams (16 members) competed, having qualified at the area event earlier this year. 24 teams took part so the competition was exceptionally tough. All our members were well turned out and kept a very positive attitude despite the challenging conditions. None of our teams were placed but just outside the placings were Ella Glennon, Steph Bennison, Macy Simpson & Mary Nason. Our other teams were very close behind with only 2 points between two of our other teams. One of our youngest members Ella Glennon achieved a 4th in her individual arena which bearing I mind she is only 8 is a huge achievement. Megan Busby was placed 6th in her arena. Holly Hale and her pony Jack came 1st in their arena and had to ride off for individual overall placings. This will have been tough bearing in mind the time delay and the dreadful weather but Holly went on to come 4th overall so very well done this is a real achievement. All our members did exceptionally well and were a credit to their club.  Report by Tracey Baker



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!
