Hello everyone


I would just like to start off by saying a big thank you to Katie for previously giving us the Area 12 news, and I just hope that I can do as good a job of keeping you all updated.


So here we are at the end of yet another season, and before we know it the winter qualifiers will be on us. The Horse of the Year Show is now here and I am very pleased to say that many of our members have qualified this year and I would just like to wish them all the best of luck and I look forward to hearing all the results.


The Summer Champs have now long been and gone. Fortunately, the weather held out and I hope you all had a great time, judging from your results you certainly did!


Area 12 is always very strong in the WHP section and this year was no exception with the Wales Red Intercountry Team (Jenny Yate, Danielle Gardham, Nicole George and Bea Bea Meyrick) coming 2nd. Our members were also very successful in their other classes and here are some of their results:


Danielle Gardham and the 15hh WHP Belle Vue Royal Prince had yet another successful Champs together:

5th Pretty Polly Open 153cms WHP
4th Performance 153cms
1st Gold Cup Dresage
2nd Gold Cup Overall 153cms

6th Champion of Champions
6th 15hh Intercountry Teams
2nd Premier League Red Division 153cms

Bea Bea Meyrick has had a very successful first season with her 13hh WHP Crabbswood Nutmeg and this success continued at the Champs where they were placed in all their classes:

3rd Pretty Polly Open WHP

8th Performance WHP

3rd Open 133cms WHP

1st Gold Cup WHP

4th Gold Cup Overall

5th Premier League Red Division

The combination missed the final day of the show to compete at the Pony Club Novice Eventing champs, where they finished 9th with a clear show jumping and cross-country. Congratulations Bea.


Well done to Nicole George and her 15hh WHP Langarth Donna who had a very good show in their final season together.

It is not only our WHPs that did well and I would like to congratulate the Area 12 SHP Premier League team who came 4th.


While some of us were the other side of the Country in Grantham others stayed closer to home at Pembrokeshire County Show, where they had to brave the soaking wet conditions.


Jessica John and Seren Tywyll Dark Star jumped a fantastic clear round to win the Open Intermediate and they also went on to take Champion. Congratulations Jess.


Sian Thomas kindly sent me some other results from Pembrokeshire County Show. Sian and Tansy III were the winners of the 14hh WHP section with Tarryn Williams and Romp n Rome coming 2nd. The 13hh winner was Sarah Hughes on Charmaine, who also came Reserve Champion. Alice Viles won the mixed height Restricted WHP on Simply Spider and Ella Gee and Oriental Barnowl were the winners of the Nursery Stakes. Well done all of you.


Congratulations also go to Katie Grills who was champion SHP on Bellevue Scotsman and to Jenna Davies who was M&M WHP champion on her Connemara Park Playboy.


Ill just finish off by once again wishing all of you competing at HOYS the best of luck and Im not sure if any of you are off to the Heritage Champs but if you are good luck.


If you have any news to report please send it to me before the 14th Oct.


See you all soon
