We were delighted to hold The Pony Club PC110 Eventing Championships at the prestigious Wellington International Horse Trials and Country Fair at Hook, Hampshire. The event ran over the weekend of August 29th-31st 2021.
Monday 30th August saw most of the Dressage and Show Jumping taking place. Due to the large number of entries some Dressage tests needed to be performed on the afternoon of Sunday 29th August.
Tuesday 31st August saw our competitors battle it out on the XC course to crown our 2021 PC110 Eventing Champions.
As well as Individual awards, there were also prizes for the top three Branch teams and the top three Area teams. All entrants will automatically be put in their Area team but only the top three scores will count and be awarded the prizes. There is also a trophy for the highest placed pony.
In a busy season of activity with much uncertainty, Wellington organiser David Sheerin, and his team have given Pony Club members such a fabulous opportunity to compete at a great event and in excellent international company.
We would like to thank David Sheerin and his team who rose to the challenge of helping The Pony Club and we are grateful for their flexibility and support. Wellington International Horse Trials and Country Fair is a fantastic event for all, and I look forward to seeing our talented Members out on the course!
