2016 Competition Theme

The theme for 2016 is “Seasons” - some ideas which you may wish to base your artwork around are as follows:

- Your favourite memories from Pony Club summer camp
- A winter rally at your Pony Club Branch/Centre

When uploading your entry, you’ll be asked to provide a brief description of what your artwork depicts.

If you have any queries about the competition, please email Marty Bibby, marty@pcuk.org for more details.

Good luck - we look forward to receiving your entries!

After an extremely successful first year, The Pony Club once again teamed up with the SEA to run its Art Competition. Pony Club Members from Branches and Centres across the UK were invited to paint their Pony Club memories based on the competition theme which was “The Pony Club Then, Now and in the Future”. The 85th Anniversary of The Pony Club provided the perfect oppurtunity for Members to put their favourite Pony Club moments onto canvas, and the standard was once again incredibly high!

The three-stage judging process once again culminated at The Pony Club Championships in Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire. The overall winner was chosen by the judging panel of the Chairman of The Pony Club, Mary Tuckett, and SEA members Michelle McCullagh and Jennifer Bell. The overall winner of the competition was Verity from the South Devon Hunt (West) Branch, and the runner-up (appearing in the finals for the second year in a row) was Myfanwy from the Tanatside Hunt Branch.

The inaugural year of The Pony Club SEA Art Competition proved to be extremely popular, with over 200 entries received. The theme was “Pony Club Memories” and topics ranged from Members’ first rallies or competitions, to their favourite Pony Club Camp experience.

After a difficult judging process involving representatives from The Pony Club and the SEA, 15 finalists were invited to the final stage of judging at The Pony Club Championships, held at Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire. The overall winner of the competition was Victoria from the East Hertfordshire Hunt Branch, who had the opportunity to display her artwork at the SEA Exhbition at the Mall Galleries in London, where she was presented with her trophy.
