"Well done 2012"

This page contains photos and reports of events that took place in 2012.
They were originally on the home page, but have been moved to here because that was getting a bit full!


This is the "well done" page for 2012.

These were all previously on the home page, but that gets too crowded if they stay there forever, so each spring they get copied to a new "well done" page that forms part of the site archive:

Area Dressage, Taunton Racecourse - 7th July 2012

Well it rained ALL day!!

The Novice team of Heidi Stevens, Lucy Clist and Charlotte Radley done brilliantly, battling through torrential rain to produce some nice dressage tests. Although not in the ribbons, the team came 12th and had a very enjoyable day despite the weather. (Report by Gillian Clist.)

The Cloud Appreciation Society visited Treborough XC, 9th June
(The TPC branch also held a XC rally there)

Keen observers may also spot a horse or two in the photos above (click on them for full size image), but I've no idea who is riding what! Further info (might be) available from Ali Greene or George Batting

Inter-branch Team Showjumping, 6th May at Stockland Lovell

Tiverton PC was represented by two teams at the Inter Branch Show Jumping competition run by the Weston Harriers Pony Club at Stockton Lovell. The course was well built and very long, but both teams did very well.

The first mini team of:

Rebecca Heard on Holly
withheld on Mack
Polly Muirhead on Perry

came 4th, with Polly getting 2nd individually.

The second team over a slightly bigger course was made up of:

Rosie Heard on Clyde
withheld on Mack
Georgina Wood on Lola
Polly Muirhead on Sandpiper


The team jumped fantastic clears in the fastest time and won their class! And here they are with their prizes.

Polly was also 5th individually and Georgina was 6th.

Finn Muirhead jumped in the Mini Mini class in a mixed bag team and came 5th on his new pony, Perry.

Triathlon 28th April 2012

Our Triathlon was a superb day, the effort put in by the Tri children was amazing, we had many Pb scores, and we came away with many rosettes.

  • The mini girls withheld and Polly Muirhead did fantastically.
  • The mini boys team of withheld, withheld, withheld & Finn Muirhead finished 4th as a team with withheld finishing 7th overall.
  • Jasper Pring also finished 10th Ind.
  • The Novice Junior was withheld and also her first Tri, withheld came away with a 3rd team rosette and The Eleanor Dlugosz trophy, which was presented in Eleanor's memory by her Mum.
  • The junior girls team of withheld, Charlotte Radley, Rosie Greene and Molly Watson came 4th as a team, and Rosie also won the Laura Persey Trophy, which was presented to Rosie in Memory of Laura by Heather Greenslade.

A huge thank you to all you Tri athletes who make me very proud to be your team trainer.
Ali Greene

[Webmaster's note: there are a lot of "withhelds" above because I don't have consent forms to publish the children's names. Click on any withheld link to see what you need to do to resolve this.]


PC teams Eventers challenge - 16th feb

The open team of withheld, Rupert Batting, Alexa Batting and Charlotte Hare put in excellent performances over a course of show jumps followed by xc fences against the clock. Whilst the team couldn't beat the fast ponies, their zero finishing score secured 3rd place overall, which was very pleasing indeed for the first outing of 2012.

The Junior team of withheld, Polly Muirhead, Georgina Wood and withheld had a great day out at the Polden Hills Eventers Challenge. Their excellent performance paid off and they came 6th out of 15 teams. Well done to you all. Francis Chambers also had a good day as an individual. (Does anyone have any photos of this team? If so please send them to me.)

Pony Club Area Quiz, 13th Feb

Tiverton sent two teams to the Area Quiz hosted by Polden Hills on Monday 13th February.

"Tiverton Foxes", Rupert Batting, Charlotte Radley, Lucy Clist and Henry Clist came a very close 3rd place, only half a point behind the second team.

"Tiverton Hounds", Heidi Stevens, Ellie Discombe, Rosie Heard and Becca Heard done really well but unplaced.

Well done to all who took part, the eventual winners were Devon and Somerset.
