Dressage, Dengie, Grassroots at Landlords

Mar 25

19th March 2017, Jill

Well done to our dressage riders competing today, despite high winds and horizontal rain!
Lucy W, Macaulay, Catelyn and Amy G all competed in the Grassroots class, this is the first time this competition has been run and they all rode well with Catelyn just missing out on a place. 
Harriet and Vicky had qualified for the Dengie Intermediate, both rode good tests and Harriet took 4th place, well done to you & Hetti!
Lastly Evie competed in the P18 ride off which she had qualified for at an earlier competition. The standard was very high and Evie scored a very respectable 74.62% just missing out on a place.

Thank you to everyone who turned out today and throughout the winter series, to parents & friends for your support and to Holcombe Hunt Pony club for hosting 😊

Christmas Show 2016

Mar 25

Than you to everyone that came along to the Christmas show today, both those of you taking part and all the helpers

Just want to put out a big THANK YOU to Alex Maxwell! She’s not part of the committee, she’s a member of the club!

She was the chief co-ordinator of today’s fun! Making up the schedule, posters, monitoring the entries, shopping for gift and head organiser on the day itself!

She chose to make sure everyone had a great time and not ride herself!

Thank you Alex!

Also to Nikky Westhead who manned the refreshments xx

Under 10 Show Jumping

Oct 31

The under 10’s team showed everyone what being a team meant. They walked the course & supported each other through great & tough times. Sadly we had two eliminations for Amy & Sadi, but also then two great first round clears for Caitlyn Armstrong & Lucy Melchors. Both riders first time out competing on their fabulous new ponies. Lucy Melchors had another clear and got through to the jump off. Which may I say was extremely fast, but exciting to watch.
