Huge congratulations go to 4 of our members who passed their Pony Club Lunge test recently - Beth Storey, Georgia Watson, Hattie Garner and Lauren Marsh were all examined by Mrs Theobald of Newton Hall Equestrian Center and passed with flying colours. Thanks go to TCPC instructor Tracy Allin Baker who helped prepare Beth and Georgia.
Paddy had a fantastic time at the Junior Tetrathlon Championships held at Bishops Burton in Yorkshire from 18th to 20th August. He went clear cross country and scored personal bests in the three other disciplines: shooting, swimming and running. Special mention should be made of his incredible run time of 5:05 which was 6th out of 60. His final result for all the disciplines together was 14th / 60. If he can keep this level up he will be a very strong contender indeed in three years’ time when he reaches the top of the age range. Thank you to the Thetford Chase for helping him get up to Yorkshire!
We had a fantastic 3 days for our Junior camp held at Horseshoe Farm this year, the weather was kind, the ponies were amazing and the children were just brilliant. We had a packed timetable of showjumping, cross country, flat work, mounted games and a drill ride - I'm not sure we could have squeezed anymore into the days as parents, ponies and children were all exhausted by the end of it.
We have noticed recently that our members have not been wearing correct PC attire to Rally days etc so here is a helpful checklist list for you to refer to:
Thetford Chase sweatshirt or riding jacket
PC membership badge with test felt if achieved.
Jodhpurs (light colours,black or brown)
