Tiverton Pony Club
Prince Philip Cup
10th March 2009
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
the new site please contact
Prince Philip Cup (Mounted Games) is run by Becky Daykin (01884 251469)

This year we have seen a huge increase in the number of teams being entered
at competitions, the standard is very high and the cost of ponies, in
certain instances, is approaching BSJA levels. Could this be because mounted
games has been selected as a demonstration event for the 2012 Olympics?
We start practising, inside, very gently, in January, younger members
often begin on the lead rein. It is amazing how quickly their confidence
grows and how quickly the ponies learn what to do. Currently we are short
of two members for our junior team and it would be nice to have a novice
team or a 'B' team to put forward. So be encouraged to give Prince Philip
Cup a try!
