19.06.2022 - **AREA SHOWJUMPING**

Yesterday Tivyside Riding Club enjoyed a very successful day at Gower RC who were hosting the Area 21 SJ Qualifier for the National Championships in Lincoln later this year.
The competition was held on grass - a bit of a novelty these days - so the ups & downs and humps & lumps of a grass arena played their part.
The day started early with the Style Jumping where in the 75cm class junior member Ruth Maczka and the lovely Coco Alley had a 2nd place, followed by Petra James and Blodyn y Pasg who were also 2nd in the senior section. In the 85cm Style Amy Sibley and the irrepressible Lyndell Cherry Blossom won the Junior class.
Then on to the Showjumping in the 70cm class Ruth and Coco jumped 2 great rounds to go one better this time and win the Junior 70 SJ. Petra and Blodwen jumped a double clear meaning they had to jump off for individual places in the seniors. Another clear and fast securing them 1st place.
The 80cm and 80 Open class TRC were represented by Petra and Blodwen who had an eventual 4th place just knocking down the 1st jump in the second round and Louise LeGeyt and Quarter of (Doriz) who were in the Open section where they jumped a lovely double clear and made it into the jump off and were just pipped into 2nd place by less than a second.
In the 90 class junior representative Amy and Blossom jumped 2 accomplished rounds for a win in that section. Tivyside had a team in the seniors comprising of Louise and Doriz, Petra and The Protagonist and Hannah Mcloughlin riding Corvisto. All horses and riders put in great jumping efforts over the 2 rounds for a Team win with Hannah 1st individual, Petra 2nd and Louise 3rd. A Tivyside white wash!
Last class of the day was the 100cm where Hannah and Corvisto jumped 2 super rounds for yet another win for them and of course TIVYSIDE RIDING CLUB!
Many thanks go to Gower RC for hosting the competition and to our TRC helpers of Rob Humfrey, Mariette Sibley and Tracy Maczka for sterling work manning the entrance to the ring. Thank you very much from all our competing competitors 🙂 Happy days!

05.04.2022 - Last weekend at Little Mill Equestrian Center Tivyside Riding Club was represented at both the Area Combined Training Qualifier and the postponed Intermediate Winter Showjumping Qualifier.

Jim Fox riding Echo was our sole representative in the CT competition which was run over 2 days. The dressage was on Saturday with a return trip required for the Showjumping held on Sunday. Jim and Echo were competing for the first time at Area level and finished very pleased with a satisfactory result for them both.
Sunday afternoon also played host to the Intermediate SJ competitions of 90, 100 and 110.
TRC had a team in both the 90 and the 100 class, unfortunately it was a team of 3 due to the fourth member having to withdraw earlier in the week but that was no barrier to the intrepid trio as they qualified in both the 90 and the 100 classes. They now go on to the Intermediate Winter Championships at Bury Farm later on this month.
Our riders were Lucy Allison with Hazevern State Occasion - 2nd individually in both classes, Jodie Humphreys riding L'escala Van't Goedlevens - who won the 90 and was individually 3rd in the 100 and Hannah Mcloughlin aboard Corvisto - 4th individually in both classes.
Thank you to the hosts at Little Mill and to Towy Valley Riding Club for organising a great couple of days competition. 🙂

Riders had lessons in flatwork, with Petra James and Showjumping with Lucy Roberts. It's always good to have another pair of eyes on our riding with lots of positive comments and exercises to go away with and practice.

Many thanks to Muriel Gill for organising and providing much needed coffee through the day.
Well done to the riders some of which pushed through their comfort zones to achieve greatness! Da iawn pawb 🙂
