Polden Hills Team Show Jumping at Kings Sedgemoor

It was an early yet successful start start for our youngest competitors in Class 1 (2ft). Seven teams were competing, and
Tiverton Red (Phoebe Green, Katie Heal, Emily Miller, and Ollie Coe) came 2nd and
Tiverton Blue (Myrtle and Margot Scudamore and Phoebe Green) were 3rd.
Phoebe was 2nd and 4th individually with her two ponies.

Class 2 (2ft 3) was competitive, with twelve teams taking part. The Tiverton Green team of Katie Bainbridge, Katie Heal,
Emily Miller
and Phoebe Green were one of only two teams to finish with zero jumping penalties, but were beaten into 2nd place
by the Polden Hills Pumpkins who were just that little bit quicker on time. Katie Heal earned a 5th place individually.

Class 3 (2ft 6) saw a large field of 18 teams.  Fiona Wedden lead the Tiverton Yellow Team (with Emma and Katie Bainbridge and Jessica Grant) with a lovely clear, but an overall team score of 12 faults meant they were unplaced.

Class 4 (2ft 9) Fiona Wedden again had a clear round on Sam, and with Laura Glendining made up a mixed team. 
Laura was the lone Tiverton competitor in the final class 5 (3ft), having just one fence down.

Thank you to all who took part.

West Somerset Pony Club Team Show Jumping

Stockland Lovell, Sunday 5th June 2016

Margot and Myrtle Scudamore together with Katie Bainbridge got the Tiverton Pony Club off to a good start,
all having double clear rounds (3rd place) in Class 2 (2’ 12 years and under).
These three riders were then joined by Emma Bainbridge to win class 3 (the 2’3 Open),
with Emma 4th and Margot 5th individually.
 Emma and Rosie Heard (on her new ride) then made up a Tiverton mixed team of three riders for class 4 (the 2’6 Open),
again winning the class, with Emma taking individual 3rd place.
Jenny Mettam (individual) was going exceptionally well in Class 6 (3’-3’3) but had an unlucky stop at the “road closed”
fence in the timed part of the course. This probably robbed her of victory, but still earned her 4th place.

An enjoyable and rewarding outing



                                           Good Luck                                           

Amelia Green is taking her A Test on Wednesday 25 May.

This is a very prestigious test and Amelia has worked very hard working towards this goal.

We hope the day goes well for you, good luck and very best wishes
