Last updated 20th September 2009

This website is moving to http://www.tivpc.org.uk

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but the "Geocities" server on which it is currently hosted is closing in October 2009
so a new address is required, and we have taken the opportunity to take out the "tivpc.org.uk" domain name for Tiverton PC.

The existing "Geocities" site will remain live until they shut down its server, but from 20th September it will no longer be updated,
and all new entries will take place on the new site.

So please go to http://www.tivpc.org.uk now, and also update any links you may have to the old site. If you have problems with
the new site please contact me.

Team Showjumping

This is mainly local inter-branch jumping by teams of 3 or 4, but some inter-school events also take place.

Typically two rounds are jumped: 1st untimed, 2nd against the clock - usually over a raised course. Pony Club rules permit a 3rd round over a shortened course if two or more teams finish round 2 on zero total faults, but this seldom happens since usually it's getting late & everyone wants to get home!

This is very much a team event as the best three scores in each round count towards your team score, so reliability and steadiness are just as important as speed. It is also possible to enter as an individual, but most people find it more fun to take part as one of a team.

If you want to be in a showjumping team contact (at least 2 weeks before the event):

Team Team manager Typical age (varies - see below) Typical jump height (varies - see below)
Open Alison Palfrey (01884 881413) Under 21 2'9" - 3'0" 1st round
Junior Jane Phillips (01884 881512) 14 and under 2'3" - 2'6" 1st round
Mini Julie Pick (01823 674112) 11 and under 1'6" - 2'0" 1st round

Variations: Unfortunately ages are not standardised for these competitions: some are age on 1st Jan, and some are age on the day. And the Open / Junior / Mini age brackets vary between competitions, as do the jumping heights - check each schedule carefully! If you are a borderline case check with the relevant organiser(s) for a given event. In most events you can enter in two or even three age groups if you meet the age requirements and can jump the fences.

 

Prince Philip Cup (mounted games)

Newcomers are always welcome - contact Becky Daykin 01884 251469 see the Prince Philip Cup page for more info

Anyone under 15 as at 1 Jan is welcome to come along and have a go at this - it's fun so come along and give it a try. Although rallies will be weekly from 25 Feb (2.30 to 4.30 pm at Axon Farm, Burlescombe weather permitting) you don't have to come along every week.

Cost: £2 For more details and to check venue if wet, contact Beccy Daykin 01884 251469
