EQUESTRIAN: VWH Pony Club defend their title
6:00am Thursday 22nd August 2013 in Latest News
THE VWH Hunt Pony Club won the Open Pony Club Eventing Championships for the second year running.
Last year’s winning team of Pumbaa Goess Saurau, Alice Bibby, James Norris and Anna Horton were unavailable either due to horse injury, international commitments or over-qualification so the branch fielded a new squad in 2013. Tintin Belsham, Alice Edgedale, Toby Dibble and Isabel Mckeeman made up the successful team.
All four members are from the Swindon and Highworth area and have been members of the Pony Club for a number of years, but formed a relatively inexperienced team, Tintin being the most experienced having been long listed for the Junior European Event team this year.
She was riding Stormhill Michael, owned by her mother Suzie. Michael had previously been placed at Badminton with Paul Tapner.
Dibble from Highworth was riding Kinfabregas, a former ride of international eventer Sammi Mcleod, while Alice Edgedale’s mare Urella Z has made a miraculous from a broken hip two years ago.
Isabel Mckeeman rode Ruscai Little Arkansas, with whom she finished third at Badminton in the Grassroots Chamionships earlier this year.
