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..
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 !!
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.


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! 


Max Frost has been selected by the Area 15/16 tetrathlon committee to represent the south west at Royal Windsor Horse show. Max will compete over three days at the show with the riding phase being a course of show jumps in the big arena. Max will be accompanied by Sophie Bray from Devon and Somerset and Chloe Olford from South Devon Moorland. We would like to wish Max and Roxy the best of luck at this amazing event.

Combined Training at Duchy College 31st March 2016

A lovely sunny day and a great day of competition was
enjoyed at the college on Thursday. Although the entries were slightly down
compared to the October CT, and so it was opened up to other clubs/ non- PC Riders,
all classes from 40cm to 95cm took place.

In Class 1 (40cm) Florence Scard-Morgan was first and also
had best dressage prize, Alfred Forer was a close second, Hollie Jenkins was
third despite having a sore collar bone and completed the dressage in a sling!
Unfortunately Hollie had to retire in the show jumping, but showed great
courage to have a go!

Class 2 (60cm) was very competitive- being won by Ella
Glennon who also took the best dressage prize. The showjumping proved very
influential with only 3 clear rounds. The final results being 1st
Ella Glennon, 2nd Tegenn Greenaway, 3rd Florence
Scard-Morgan, 4th Hannah Bragg, 5th Kensa Bennallick, 6th
Donna Sellick. Special rosettes were given to Millie Frost and Erin Voysey for
7th and 8th.

Class 3 (70 cm) saw another excellent dressage score from
Ella Glennon to win, 2nd was Sydney Bond with the only clear round,
3rd was Evie Baker on new pony Cruz and in 4th Holly Hale
with Jack.

Class 4 (75cm) was well supported with 9 entries. 1st
was Isobel Thomas who had 1 of only 2 clear rounds, 2nd Sydney Bond
who also scooped best dressage, going clear into 3rd was Macy
Simpson, 4th Phoebe Frost, 5th Jade Coupland and 6th
Evie Baker. Special rosettes were awarded to Stephanie Bennison, Charlotte
Scoble and Maddy Lee who were 7th, 8th and 9th

Class 5 (85 cm) saw Louisa Blagdon take best dressage, again
the showjumping proved tricky with no clear rounds and results as follows: 1st
Tilly Bassett, 2nd Bethany Coggan, 3rd Phoebe Frost, 4th
Louisa Blagdon, 5th Abi Baker and 6th Cynthia Robinson.

Only 2 competed in the final (95cm) class- 2 very good
dressage scores, followed by 4 SJ faults each saw very close competition
between Abi Baker and Ellie Robinson with Abi winning by 3 points.

The format of the day, where riders were allowed to jump a
second round which didn�t count to final score, saw many improving on their
original jumping scores and it was a great way to give confidence and encourage
both riders and ponies. Zoe Barwell judged the dressage and was very positive
and kind with her comments. Margaret Best and Oli Bassett did a great job of
judging the jumping with very professional commentary from Oli. Excellent help
was given by Kathy Treleven, Fiona Phillips and Julia Bassett. Thanks to all
who made it a very successful and enjoyable day.
