Manx Horse Council Show Jumping Challenge 2022

Organised by Ballavartyn Equestrian Centre

20th November 2022

Supported by Milan Veterinary Ltd

12 teams came forward for the Milan Veterinary Practice sponsored Manx Horse Council Members’ Show Jumping Challenge held at Ballavartyn Equestrian Centre on November 20th 2022.

Jen Crennell built a very welcoming track that catered from novice combinations to more experienced show jumpers. The team competition produced a very close affair with 4 teams tying on 4 faults after 2 rounds of jumping. A jump off over a shortened course was contested by 17 combinations and it decided the final team and individual positions. Kadie Watterson riding her lovely grey pony Conrhenny Didgeredoo took the tightest lines over the fences and was unbeatable with a clear in a time of 30.72 seconds. This secured her not only the individual honours but also won the team competition for West Coast Riding Club. Second place went to another small pony rider, Vicky Thompson riding Daisy, representing Baldrine Stables, also clear but in a slower time of 33.07 seconds. The Pony Club edged out Kennaa Riding Club for 3rd place.

The Manx Horse Council is very grateful to all at Ballavartyn Equestrian Centre for putting on such a good day’s sport and to Milan Veterinary Practice and Country Warehouse for providing the rosettes and prizes.

The home team of Kennaa Riding Club followed up on their recent success in Arena Eventing by winning the Team Dressage Challenge held at Kennaa on Saturday April 23rd.

A sunny but blustery day saw 6 teams coming before judge Jane Atree to contest the MHC Dressage Challenge. There were some very nice performances in both the short and long arenas and it was good to see younger members on their ponies taking up the challenge.

The minor placings were evenly contested with the Chasers team “Shaken but not Spurred” second, edging out Conrhenny EC by less than 3% who finished third. West Coat RC were fourth, Baldrine Stables fifth and Pony Club sixth.

The individual winner was last year’s champion James Mister who produced a fine test on Graigueaverne Forester with a score of 74.31% ahead of team-mate Lola-Bea Bryce on Eragon Von Der Held, 68.97%.

Many thanks to all at Kennaa EC for organising the day and to Jane Atree for judging the tests. The MHC is very grateful to Milan Veterinary Ltd for sponsoring the Member’s Team Challenge series and to Country Warehouse for helping with the prizes.
