PONY CLUB EVENTING

Eventing originally evolved from the training and selection of cavalry horses.

It involves 3 disciplines, each of which is designed to test the horse's ability. The Dressage phase shows how trainable the horse is and its basic paces in walk, trot and canter, the show jumping shows athleticism, control and accuracy while the cross – country phase tests stamina, speed, jumping and bravery. The sport combines the different disciplines in one competition and is run on a cumulative penalty basis. The competitor with least penalties at the end is the winner.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Chairman Mr. Michael Essame

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Chairman Mr. Michael Essame

Dear Members and Parents

 What a difficult Pony Club year it has been. When I took up this position last January little did I or anybody know what a year it would be. Yet, despite all the difficulties and setbacks, wewere able to hold some limited activities such as Hunter Trials, branch Tetrathlon, Rallies and Tests to name but a few. We commend the tireless work and dedication from our volunteers, there are hundreds of you, from branch officials, to the parents who help at rallies and competitions, to the grandparents and family members who give their time so willingly and freely.  I would like to thank everyone of you for the effort you put in, without you we could not function.

Looking forward to 2021, we have a very full programme of events organised, of which each of our discipline committees have been working hard to coordinate. When complete, a calendar will be published in the New Year. I have no doubt that things will be different but I look forward to reacquainting with familiar faces and endeavour to meet many of you in 2021. 

Wishing a Happy Christmas and a better New Year to you all.       

Michael Essame
