East Cornwall Pony Club


A great days eventing
was had today at St Leonards, for the Area 16 ODE qualifier, by kind permission
of Andy and Kathryn Reeve. The club put up 2 full 90 teams, although it was
touch and go for Abi Baker, having been ill for the proceeding 2 days! Team A
was made up of Abi and Evie Baker, Phoebe Frost and Issy Thomas. Team B was
represented by Macy Philips, Demelza Morris, Flo Wickham and Tegenn Greenaway.
As individuals representing the club in the 80cm we had Tamsyn Morris and
Millie Frost. Very high temperatures made for very difficult riding conditions
but thankfully organisers allowed for jackets to be removed for dressage and SJ
phases. Dressage arenas were set up on the adjacent Launceston rugby club
grounds, in addition to the menage at St Leonards. The cross country course was
creative and fences were well build and positioned to pose a few questions...
Jumping phases in particular were influential but determined riding was shown
by all.. Notable successes were Phoebe Frost- Individual 1st and qualified for
the championships at end of August. Issy Thomas Individual 5th. Team A pipped
to 2nd team place by 0.3 points! Narrowly missing qualification. Massive thanks
to Julia Basset, Julie and Daisy Swain for giving up their day to fence judge-
with out people like you these events couldn't happen. A very enjoyable day,
with great sportsmanship showing what a fantastic sport eventing is... Well
done all!
