Horse Trials on June 21st 2015 at Llanymynech

Well this year we had a great response to our team plea, for Area Horse Trial qualifiers
We had a team representing each class, so an 80,90 & 100

80 team, Ali Harper, Justine Roberts, Meg Davies & Sam Davies
Sadly 1 member fell foul to the vaccination rule, so had to go HC, so this made us a team of 3, however we all knuckled down & managed to come a credible team 5th out of 15 teams. Picking up individual places too of 2x 6 th & a 7th

90 Team. Laura Smith, Vicky Robson, Elspeth Carr & Rachel Wooley
Again we had a a great team & they finished 5 out of 14 teams, Vicky getting an individual 5th!

100 Team. Sally Poppe, Rachel Tudor Davies, Becky King, & Rebekah Jackson
Sadly we had an admin error on this team. I failed to write which class it was & area instead of questioning assumed it was a 90. I tried to change as I had declared them as a 100 team at the beginning of the competition, but it wasn’t to be. Again ladies, I am so sorry.
On this note Sally & Rebekah decided to withdraw as the ground was pretty solid & didn’t want to risk their super horses. Becky &Rachel both ran individually in the 100. Both girls had a great day with fab clear XC rounds. I hope it hasn’t put you off for next year!

So all in all we represented the club very well I think, with our club up in the Top 6 twice

Many many thanks to our wonderful helpers, Elspeth for providing the gazebo for the dressage judges to sit along with tables, tablecloths & chairs! Rachel for coming to help set it up along with the arenas, also Sue Jones, Julie Phillips.
On the day, we had a great picnic for the judges, everybody made some lovely food, Justine’s mum for lovely cakes, Heather Jones, Gina Williams for being our hostess’ delivering around the arenas
It’s quite a stressful day to organise on top of sorting food out for the judges, but by the end of the day, I think it all ran pretty smoothly!! Most people were smiling! I hope I haven’t missed anyone off, again I apologise if I have!

Results for the Vyrnwy Valley Riding Club & Tanatside Hunt Branch of The Pony Club One Day Event

ODE Results 2015

Thank you to all of our competitors who battled the weather conditions to take part in the ODE. We hope you had a great day and were pleased with your results.

I would like to say a huge “thank you” to those members and friends who helped at our ODE on Saturday at Berriewood.

The weather conditions were “challenging”, but everyone just accepted that and made the most of it.

I am going to risk naming those who helped and hope to goodness I don’t miss anyone out!!

First of all we had several non VVRC members
Jo Woodcock who did a splendid job as XC Control and kept that whole phase moving despite deteriorating ground conditions.

Wendy and Sally Poppe (who is a member) ran the dressage

Rhiannon Hinton who dressage judged.

Trish Bridge was in charge of scoring and also was the extremely long suffering person who worked out all the competitor times and dealt with the many changes thrown at her.

Linda Jackson who was scoring.

Patsy Pyke’s husband Adrian who wrote for dressage and Jane Yorke’s partner Pete who also wrote for dressage.

Fiona and Rainer Jarman, Jan Glover, John Howarth and Harvey Walters (also on standby for fence repair) who all fence judged.

Now to our members

Sally Evans and myself are joint organisers on behalf of both clubs ( Tanatside PC and VVRC)

Anne Roberts who does a considerable amount of work before, during and after the event.

Jane Yorke and Patsy Pyke both judged dressage. In fact Patsy judged 2 classes.

Jeanette Barnes was in Secretaries

Elspeth Carr was scoring.

James Dawson ran the Show Jumping ably assisted by Jessica Jones

Tara McDermott ran her socks off collecting scores, Nikki Alexander and Vikki Luxmoore wrote for dressage, Joanne Matthews stewarded dressage and Sara Wright was on the XC start.
Irene Gill and Teresa Jones who served refreshments to fence judges.

Last but by no means least were the members who spent 8 hours out on the XC fence judging.

They were
Pat Sheppard, Jan Lawrence, Emily Jones, Rebecca Walters, Sue Jones, Emma Belcher, Heather Jones, Babs Williams, Jenny Clayton, Charlie Pearce, Sharon Ratcliff, Karen Booth, Erica Morgan. Kat Morgan, Gaynor Morgan, Meg Evans and Mair Schmeink helped on behalf of both clubs.

I believe we will have made a good amount of money for Riding Club Funds again which of course go straight back to members in one way or another.
