Amazing Performance Awards Results!

Category: HPS News

The two Performance Schemes in England & Wales (E&W) and in Scotland have now had their Presentations Days and the results are all available below.

In E&W, an amazing 50 books were sold for the 2018 competing year and 43 were returned to Anne Owen-Walker, the enthusiastic and hard working Secretary. They enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Oakridge, close to the A1, and all were awarded something to take home! The winner was Sophie Beaumont with Glenmore of Roisbheinn who amassed 5583 and took home the HPS Bronze Medal, The Glenda Spooner Trophy, The Benny Trophy and The HPS Quaich

In Scotland, although a much more modest number of books were sold, all those who participated had a great season and appreciated the chance to get together for the presentations. Rebecca Chalmers gave a really interesting presentation on 'What the Judge is Looking for in the Showing and Dressage Rings'. This stimulated much discussion and all were encouraged by her experiences working with Highlands. The take home message was that they are clever and quick to learn. The winner in Scotland was the 12yr old mare, Trailtrow Tanera bred by Gillian McMurray and ridden by Kirstin McMurray. Their points total was 3155 and their haul included the Glenda Spooner Trophy  for the Overall Champion, the HPS Bronze Medal, the Morvern of Turinhill Quaich for the best Home Produced Mare, the Dunedin Harris Trophy for the highest working hunter pony points, the Angus of Gersa Quaich for the highest placed Homebred pony, the ODE Rosette and the Champion Rosette. 

Full reports with photographs of the Performance Awards Results Schemes will be published in the Spring Newsletter.
