Sk8 Roller Disco - Social Event

A great evening was had by all who attended the Roller Disco at the Life Centre in Plymouth on Saturday 13th December......it was a full on evening with many who attended, skating for several hours either "free-style" or racing!

Even those who began the evening skating hesitantly were soon moving at speed...though at times the stopping proved difficult!

It was great to see such a range of ages together, all working hard to master the skill and the Christmas themed parent skaters also seemed to enjoy the festivities!

Well done ECHPC - again, you did us proud!

Horse and Hound at the Equine Fair

Eight members of ECHPC did a fantastic job representing our club at the Equine Fair to compete in the Horse and Hound Challenge.  Tilly Bassett, Demelza Morris, Katie Flanagan and Evie Baker our riders with Ellie Pitman, Ty Norris, Phoebe Frost and Poppy Pearn with their dogs.  

It was a great day, rather overwhelming with a big crowd, lots of noise and a very small arena - everyone gave it their all, overcame nerves and did exceptionally well.  They were placed 3, winning head collars for the ponies and bandanas for the dogs along with a lovely rosette.

All were a bit in awe having a surprise judge for the tack and turnout in the shape of none other than Mary King!  

A great effort from all involved - another wonderful event in which ECHPC members did their club proud!

Thank you to all the parents for making the effort to bring the children, ponies and dogs, to Tracey Baker to coordinating the training and the event and to Louise Garland who was on hand to walk the course and give encouragement to the children.

Cotley Triathalon

Four members from ECHPC travelled up to Wellington for the Cotley Triathalon.

Isabell and Millie competed in the mixed mini class of 8 & 9 year olds.  Both girls did a great shoot, especially Isabell who has gained some great tips from Paul at shoot training and has improved greatly.  Both girls had a good swim and Mille did a great run.

Max has been a consistent scorer through all phases and was placed 5th individually and 1st in a mixed team.

Phoebe was in a very strong class of mini girls.  She also had a good shoot and swam over 4 lengths, only missing a top 6 place by a few points.

Well done to all!

There is an extra Tri/Biathalon in January being run by Devon and Somerset PC on 11th January.  This is now bookable on the events page and entries close before Christmas, so don't forget to book asap.

A great day for our juniors on Saturday with 25 children ALL passing a pony club

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