Red hot competition in annual Cumbria Shield event

Competition was red hot at Greenlands as local Pony Club branches met to battle it out for the Cumbria Shield 2012.

This year it was hosted by the Cumberland Farmers Hunt North branch and action began early with six teams in the Lead Rein and Assisted class. Victory went to Caldew Riding Club’s team of Jack Saddler, Ella Baker, Samantha Hodgson and Freya Gaitskell.

The CFHS took the honours in both the 50cm class with Holly Veitch, Ellie Metcalfe, Maddison Ellis and Emily Watson and the 60cm with Holly Veitch, Morgan Ellis, Emily Watson and Maisie Miller.

Then it was the host branch’s turn to celebrate as Alice Atkinson, Hannah McGarr, Naeve Brown and Rhianon Fisher took the coveted Junior Cumbria Shield. The same team also proved invincible in the 75cm scurry. The CFHS took first, second and fourth in the 80cm class, with Amy Miller, Hannah Parkin, Hazel Noble and Louisa Evans coming out on top.

Then it was on to the top prize of the day, the prestigious Senior Cumbria Shield.

The class was actually won by the Dumfriesshire Hunt PC but the trophy can only go to a Cumbrian team, and there was a highly exciting jump-off between West Cumberland, CFHN, Cumberland Foxhounds and CFHS.

Joy was uncontained among the CFHS ranks when Amy Miller, Hannah Parkin, Hazel Noble and Sally Addison kept their nerve to win.

The day finished nearly 12 hours after it began with victory for the Cumberland Foxhounds team of Jess Murray, Aidan Gregory, and Harriet Ashbridge in the 1m.

Inglewood saw plentiful entries for both its Working Hunter and the Ridden and In-hand shows.

Thanks to the wet and blustery conditions, most classes were transferred to the indoor arena and organisers split the schedule throughout the day so competitors were able to arrive at specified times.

The most successful rider of the day was Jessica Anderson on Aiska Rose who won both Ridden Championships. Two regular Inglewood competitors triumphed in the last championship of the day. Carltonlima Buttons owned by Kim Carrick and ably shown by her daughter, Lucy Carrick was In-Hand Champion, while Murthwaite Tonka Toy owned and handled by Amanda Batey took the Reserve.

Melanie Dixon’s young filly Primitive Promise by Primitive Proposal out of a Catherstone Dazzler mare was one of the top ten highest scoring yearlings at the BEF Futurity Gradings held in Britain over the summer.

This qualified her for the Baileys BEF futurity championship held at Osberton horse trials near Nottingham. With Ian Stark and Lucinda Simms judging, she scored 80 per cent to win her yearling class and took overall Reserve, to Jenny Loriston Clark’s three-year-old Catherston Definitive.

Nearly two years after a serious accident which threatened to spell an end to Denise Richardson’s glittering career with horses, comes the great news that she has qualified to be a ride, conformation and sports horse senior panel judge.

The announcement’s been warmly welcomed by her many friends and supporters who say she richly deserves the status.

In eventing, Hohn Thornton won his BE100 section at Bishop Burton with Just Before Three, going clear on dressage.

Helen Kerry won the 15+ Horse & Pony Events Northern Novice Championship on her 17-year-old grey gelding Blitzen.

But there was an even more special victory for Helen at the Edenwell Equestrian Centre near Hartlepool when she scooped the Cariad Trophy.

Helen had presented the trophy to the competition in 2009 in memory of a 19-year-old horse bought for her by her late father, Julian in 1969 and who went on competing to the age of 28.

Not content with those accolades, Helen also took the Reserve in the 15+ dressage Elementary section, while husband David took the Reserve in the Introductory test.
