News – Summer Round Up 2015
We have had another great year with the Foxes Pony Club, we again went to The Pony Club National Championships with a new team this year of Emma, Morgan, Isabelle and Shona and we took different horses this year, Storm and Annie. The girls trained with John and Anna in the weeks leading up to the Championships. We finished 6th this year out of 21 teams! on a score of 228.1 and 3rd finishing on 228.8 so less than one point between 3rd and 6th, very close with high competition from other centres around the UK! Everyone at Foxes would like to thank Emma, Morgan, Isabelle and Shona for there hard work (“Thank you Ladies”)
Everyone enjoyed a brilliant pony club camp this year too, with lots of badges being given out with the weather was great this year. All the gang had their onesies and were kept busy with lessons and a combined training competition to finish the week, we hear Anna and John were very happy to get back to their own beds by the end of the week 🙂
News – Summer Round Up 2014
Well, what a year we have had at our Centre! Membership has almost doubled and the exam pass rate is at 100% – and to top it all off we have had a very successful summer! On August the 15th we made the journey to the Centre Championships. Six weeks of team lessons of dressage practise, jumping different courses, learning about high standards of horse and rider turn out for competitions hard work paid off by becoming The Pony Club Centre Champions. Our team consisted of Katie Nickson (Captain), Nicholas Turner, Ellie Williamson and Kate Linford – who had only jumped for four weeks prior to the Trials and got the best score overall in both sections in the whole competition! What a reception we all got when we got back to the stables, lots of happy tears for all. So our two star horses Mollie and Sunny got a great bucket of feed that night and lots of hugs and kisses. We also received some great PR after this win including an article on Horse & Country TV website!
Team A where also busy earlier this year and organised a Summer BBQ at Thornton Hall Hotel on July 4th to raise money for a proper show block for the Riding School and Camp. What a great night; there was an auction, a raffle and even our instructor John and Anna’s partner Scotty raised money by doing their rendition of “Britian’s Got Talent” – Boys in Heel’s dance! A total of £1550 was raised and the shower has now been built. By John Gilbert
