Lamerton Bi/Triathalon Results

Once again East Cornwall was well represented by 9 Atheletes to compete in Lamertons Bi/Triathalon on Sunday 16th Nov 14.  Even though the ground was very wet and slippery all managed very well with the slippery, testing conditions.  

Both Kizzy and Tigg- Lou Whitton took part in the Biathalon.  It was Tiggy-Lou's first event and she had a great time and Kizzy did a great swim.

 We had one team of four in the mixed mini class, made up of Millie, Florence, Hattie and Isabelle.  Millie improved her shoot and swam over 3 lengths, coming a very well deserved 6th - definately one to watch for the future!  Florence also really improved her swim and showed grit and determination with her run.  hattie and Isabelle also swam really well.

Annelie and Phoebe competed in the very strong Mini girls class.  Phoebe managed to swim over 4 lengths, achieving a longstanding personal goal.  She also had a good shoot which gained her 4th place - well done Phoebe!

Annelie has not competed in a Triathalon for a while, but had a fun day and managed  a really good swim.

Charlotte competed in the Junior Girls Class.  She had another good shoot and improved her swim to finish first.

 The EC Team made up of Phoebe, Annelie and Charlotte came 3rd overall - well done to all of you!

Please remember to check the website for shoot training, which will take place on either a Monday or Tuesday to try an suit all those who are interested

Also, Dave, the swimming coach, is offering swim lessons at Bodmin Pool on Wednesday evenings.  if you would like to come along, please be on poolside by 6.20 and perhaps let Kathy know to expect you.

their Grass kept ponies, know, fit and care for their equipment and ride
confidently at all paces including a small jump. 

The next step for these Members is their road rider achievement badge followed by the C test which is aimed at children of 11 years old and above.

East Cornwall Hunt Childrens Meet 2014

Hunting Oct 14 1

It was so lovely to see the East Cornwalls Hunt Childrens Meet so well supported by the ECHPC.  There was a fantastic turnout and everyone looked very smart.  The ponies all behaved impeccably, both in the car park and at the meet.  Unfortunately after a couple of hours the hunt had to end early due to the bad weather, with thick fog closing in, so the hounds were taken back and Graham (the Hunt Master) took the kids for a bit of a blast before sending them home.  Thank you to all who made the effort on a dull, foggy day!

(Piers Brown, Katie marton, Amy Flannagan, Max Frost, Oliver bassett, Maddie Lee, Tilly Bassett, Phoebe Frost, Evie Baler, Abbie Baker, Flo Wickham, Ty Norris, Freya Donaghy, Meaghan Darling, Poppy Pearn, Demelza Morris and Erin Voyzey - If i have missed anyone, please let me know, so i can update the list!)
