Manx Horse Council Mounted Games Challenge 2023

Organised by West Coast Riding Club

1st May 2023

In support of The Home of Rest of Old Horses

The third round of the MHC Challenge Series took place on May Day at the West Coast Riding Club which hosted the Mounted Games Challenge.

Six clubs entered teams and it was great to see such a wide spread of ages of the competitors, ranging from the youngest, Ruby Corkish, at 8 years to some “more senior” members representing TREC! All had a good time and enjoyed the day for what it is, namely a fun competition in a discipline not normally participated in.
It was no surprise to see the Pony Club team dominate proceedings winning all but 2 of the races.

The team had a good work-out before representing the island at the Pony Club Area finals and were worthy winners of the Challenge. Second place was keenly contested by Kenna and Conrhenny with a run-off being required to separate them. Conrhenny emerged the better and Kenna filled third spot.

The MHC is very grateful to the organising club for their hard work in providing such a good morning’s sport. Mrs Gilbey, the president of the MHC, presented the rosettes and prizes.

Manx Horse Council Show Jumping Challenge 2023

Organised by Ballavartyn Equestrian Centre

19th March 2023

In support of The Home of Rest of Old Horses

The MHC 2023 Challenge series kicked off with the show jumping round at Ballavartyn on Sunday March 19 th with eight teams coming under starters orders. The weather was kind and spectators were entertained by a treat of competitive show jumping over two rounds and a jump off against the clock.

The equestrian clubs are embracing the proposition of the challenge with new clubs entering and riders from other disciplines taking part over the fences. The Council is particularly pleased to see so many of the younger riders participating on their ponies.

The team competition was extremely close with just 4 faults separating the clubs after two rounds and two teams tied on zero. It was all to play for in the jump off for both the team competition and overall individual honours. Jen Crennell set an interesting jump off course which allowed the smaller ponies every chance against their bigger rivals. Once the clock had stopped after the final round the honours went to the EVPNA team with Conrhenney just a few seconds behind. Ballawhetstone filled the final podium space in third with a total of 4 faults. The EVPNA team of Gracie Kewley on Spritt, Fiona Montgomery on Ferrishyn Lark Ascending , Alisha Blower on Blueberry Brazen and Barbara Eyres on Carnsdale Trendsetter were excellently marshalled by their chef d’equipe, Jennie Cryer and did not have a pole in the entire competition.

The individual Champion was Sydney Hampton on Jack representing Ballawhetstone who scorched around in 28.93 seconds, just a bit quicker than the Reserve Champion Victoria Thompson on her lovely grey pony Samwyl Bushwaka, stopping the clock on 29.49 seconds. It was great to see two younger stars taking the honours against older opposition.

The Manx Horse Council would like to thank Jodie, Jen and all the team at Ballavartyn EC for providing such an excellent day’s sport. The next round of the challenge will be Arena Eventing at Kennaa EC on April 16 th,followed by the Mounted Games at West Coast on May 1 st.
