The Pony Club Endurance Championships 2012

Pony Club Endurance has enjoyed its fourth Championship at the new venue of Kelsall Hill, Cheshire alongside Endurance Great Britain’s (EGB) Cheshire Forest Frolic.

Held over the weekend of September 15-16th 2012, Pony Club Members from all over the country took part across Junior (eight to 12 years) and Senior (over 13 years) levels, both individually and in teams. As with the other Pony Club disciplines classes are set at Novice (32km at 10km per hour), Intermediate (40km at 11km per hour) and Open (40km at 12km per hour).

It was a worthwhile trip for the Hampshire Hunt Branch, who enjoyed individual success with Annabelle Lyndon in the Junior Novice Individual section, riding Lacey; Annabelle was joined by Archie Moffat and Florence Rowsell, and together they took the top honours in the Junior Novice Team competition. In the Senior Novice Individual, Elizabeth Child from the Wilton Hunt took the top spot, riding Trowen Max.

At Intermediate level it was successful day in the Senior section for Louise Hazelwood, from the Albrighton Hunt Branch with Rimmies Outlook and Charlotte Vickery, from the Old Surrey and Burstow Hunt, enjoyed success in the Junior section with Pippa I.

After winning at Intermediate level in 2011, Katie Bedwin from the Lord Leconfield Hunt, returned riding Elayla to show her progression in the sport and take first place in the Senior Open Individual and it was a second year of success for the Bedale and West of Yore Branch, with Sophie Webber, Helena France and Emily Peirson, winning the Senior Open Team.

“A great time was had by all, and the sun was shining for the majority of the weekend!” commented Endurance Secretary Katie Hubbard. “We would like to congratulate all competitors on their achievements and their superb attitudes throughout the event”.

Introduced in 2009 Endurance has proved a great addition to The Pony Club’s disciplines, as no specific type of horse or pony is needed to take part, and the emphasis on sound knowledge of how to correctly get fit and feed your horse sits well with The Pony Club’s training ethos.
