Addington Equestrian Centre, Buckinghamshire

2nd April 2017

The Pony Club Chairman Mary Tuckett was previously a DC of which Branch?
Who is the First Chief Rider at the Spanish Riding School?
How many eggs per gram of a faecal worm count requires a dose of wormer?

If I had to answer the questions then we would have come last, but fortunately
Ellie Discombe (Team Captain), Jessica Grant and Emma and Katie Bainbridge
got enough right answers to secure a commendable 10th place for the Tiverton. This was no mean feat.
The topics this year were very wide ranging, some of the questions fiendishly difficult, and the competition fierce.
They did the Club proud, and I thank them for all their hard work, enthusiasm and cheerfulness throughout.

P.s. Answers to the above are The Whaddon Chase, Wolfgang Eder and 200.
The winners were the Cheshire Hunt North.
Full results with scores are on the national Pony Club website.

Area Quiz – Tiverton Qualify for Championships

Wednesday 15th February

We sent two teams to the Area 15 quiz qualifier held on Wednesday the 15th February at Cullompton,
and oh boy (although all girls!), they did us proud.
Tiverton Red (Ellie Discombe, Emma Bainbridge, Jessica Grant and Katie Bainbridge) came 1st with 148.5 points,
and Tiverton Blue (Emma Fallon, Sophie Fallon, Molly Clist and Grace Sinclair) were a close second with 142 points.
Sadly only one team can qualify, so it is the Reds who will make the trip to Addington, Buckinghamshire for the
National final on the 2nd April, where will try and improve on our 10th position in the 2015 final.
We are lucky to have quality in depth, and I'm sure that members of the young and talented Blue team will have their
chance to represent the Club at a final in the future. A huge thank you to all members who took part
(and thank you also to Emily Northam for your help with training).
