Working Hunter Show at Starlight 2nd April 2017   Well…what wonderful weather greeted us on Sunday afternoon for a relaxed Working Hunter competition. The 50 cm class was split into Seniors and Juniors…and under judge Fiona Byford and steward Sue Trussler…..Astrid Cuddigan and her wonderful mare Lulu took the senior honours….with Soffia Cynwyl and Sparty jumping a super round to clinch the Junior section. In the 65 cm class…Mariette Sibley and Crunchie were the deserved winners of the red rosette. The final class 75 cm was won by Christine Selby and Diamond Lady……which was a great achievement as Christine took a tumble in the second class.
Huge thanks to Fiona and Sue for fab judging and stewarding……to Petra James for building a cracking course….to Chia James for taking entries……Muriel Gill for refreshments and H&SE officer at the outdoor warm up….Judith Allen for First Aid/door monitor and Ian Morgan for door monitor/pole picker…and to all of you who provided the lush cakes.
A great big THANK YOU also to those who helped take down the jumps and to Team Starlight for beautifully presented arenas.
This concludes the indoor season until September…very much looking forward to seeing you all at our May show.

A cold day but a warm welcome at Tivyside Riding Club Show at Starlight Sunday 5th March
An excellent day’s competition was held at this popular local venue, the last of the winter and a big Thank You to Team Starlight for always providing an immaculate venue.

We opened the day with the showing classes with Abigail Morgan and her gorgeous Connemara Ballylea Night Cruiser taking the honours with a foot prefect show. In the Part Bred ridden section Christine Selby and the lovely Diamond Lady produced a smooth show to take the first prize. In the In Hand section Paula Brightman and her super Roscoe stole the judges’ heart to take the top spot. The Riding Club Horse/Pony saw Christine Selby and lovely Diamond Lady come out top again whilst In Hand Paula Brightman and Roscoe repeated their earlier first place. A big thank you to judge Brenda Burden.

The dressage saw some lovely tests with Vicki Hirst & her Sec D Equinox winning the Intro C and Catrin Wilshaw and the evergreen Gorfelyn Serena clinching the junior section under judge Alison Dowling. In the Prelim 7 judge Tammy Springett had Joanna Collins and her Sec D Tom Jones in first place with Ella Drewett and Ted the leading junior. In the final class of the day the Prelim 14 there was a repeat first placing for Jo Collins and Tom Jones.

A huge THANK YOU goes to all of the judges, steward and writer and caller Judith Allen, writer Sarah Lewis, scorers Chia James and Muriel Gill who also called and helped with refreshments, Petra James steward and door monitor, Anna Wilshaw for refreshments and caller and to all who provided the delicious cakes.
We look forward to seeing you all again in the Autumn

Jo Collins and Tom Jones 60 & 65cmKate Davis & VernonHannah Havard & Bam Bam

What a fab day we had at Bailey Farm on Sunday 19th Feb
Fab courses built by Petra…and excellent riding by all…a really fun afternoon.
The first class clear round  only had one entry …..and to say she was the cutest ever rider is no understatement…Little Harriet Davies riding Ollie negotiated her way around the course with ease to claim her clear round.
Jo Collins or was we alike to call ‘Winner Collins’ cleaned up with 2 classes under her belt, taking the 6o cm and 65 cm with Tom Jones who was flying today.
Kate Davies and Vernon…or ‘Digger’ as he is now known…took the 75 cm class with ease….whilst Hannah Havard and her gorgeous girl Bam Bam secured victory in the 80 cm class…good practice for the Area SJ next weekend at Beacons. All of the team members used to day as practice…so best of luck to them all.
Big thanks to Petra James for her excellent courses, Chia James for entries and Muriel Gill and Sarah Lewis for refreshment duty. Thanks also to Anna Wilshaw…arena party…., Jenny Linfoot and Judith Allen for providing the homemade cakes. The Air Ambulance made £13.00.
