2013/14 Pony Club Tasmania Championship Results
Our State Showjumping Championships were held on Sunday 8th December at Stanley. Hosted by the North West Zone, the Championships were held following the Stanley Show at the Stanley Showground.
It was wonderful to see the Championships so well supported and particularly pleasing to see such a large contingent of riders from the south of the State, who had a considerable distance to travel. Well done to the North West Zone committee for their initiative to draw riders to the event by combining it with the Stanley Show and effectively giving riders the opportunity to compete over two days. For many years, Circular Head riders have travelled considerable distances to compete at events and it was wonderful to see the reciprocal support given to them by riders this time round.
After the near perfect day for the Show on the Saturday, unfortunately the same cannot be said for the weather on the Sunday! But, although it was wet, cold and windy, the ground continued to be superb and thanks must go to the Circular Head Council and Stanley Show Society for providing us with such a fabulously manicured and well kept arena.
Contratulations also to the North West Zone committee who organised and ran the event. The hardworking committee did a great job in running a lovely event which was enjoyed by all. Our thanks also to the dedicated Course Designers, Equitation Judges, Showjump Judges, Technical Delegates, Pencillers, Scorers and the many marshallers and many other support personnel who supported our members at this Championship.
Our State Trials Championships were held over the March Long Weekend. Hosted by the Southeren Zone, the Championships were held at both Hobart & Districts TEC for Dressage and Show Jumping and Monmouth Pony Club Grounds for Cross Country.
This years event was very well run, friendly and most importantly the cross country was rider and horse friendly and our congratulaltions to Narelle Rowlandson, Caig Watson, John Clark who delivered such a fabulously presented course.
Thank you also to Erin Hunn, Jennifer Briggs, Andrea Watson, Hunter Doughty, Andrew Gibson and all members of the Southern Zone for such a great weekend.
Our State Dressage Championships were held on Sunday 6th April at Wynyard. Many thanks to the tireless workers from the North West Zone to present another Championship on behalf of Pony Club Tasmania. While it was disappointing to report that numbers were down this year, the competition was very competitive and congratulations to the scramble team from West Tamar and Midlands.
