This year we sent two novice teams and one intermediate team with one intermediate individual to compete at Cottenham, hosted by Cambridgeshire Hunt Pony Club.
Novice team members, Robyn Slaney, Hattie Garner, Georgia Watson, Millie Thurtle, Harriet Smith and Rosie Ellis had a good day out and gained lots of experience. Well done to Robyn Slaney who came 7th in her arena in the warm up test, just missing out on a rosette.
Our intermediate team of Polly Mountford, Hannah Spooner, Jess West and Sara Collison also had a good day, finishing 6th overall. Congratulations to Polly Mountford who finished 2nd in her Area Dressage section and has qualified for the Intermediate Pony Club Dressage Championships in August.
A big thank you to Kathryn Spooner for her tireless efforts organising the teams, and to Bobbie Aughton and Abbie Keene for their invaluable help on the day.
It was a busy half-term week for inter-branch competitions. On Saturday 23 May we sent three teams to compete at the inter-branch friendly team showjumping competition at Sotterley, hosted by the Waveney Harriers.
We also sent two showjumping teams to compete at Houghton Hall in the inter-branch competition hosted by the West Norfolk branch.
For the first time, we took part in the Pony Club Challenge at the Suffolk Show and came 3rd.
The first of the area competitions was the quiz where we were represented by Beth Storey, Lauryn Canham, Isobel Meadows and Olivia Hendrie. Having had some practice sessions the team put up a good performance and scored full marks in the identification round. It was a long day with the event being held on a Friday night after school in Essex but the team rose to the occasion. Well done to all.
