Howard Newitt and
Milbourne Equine Vets

We ask that people bring some along to meets so we can pool and share (we supply the liquid tea and mugs!)

NEW: We are now taking advertisements on the Coakham Website - and the excellent equine vets, Milbourne Equine, are our first client! If you would like to advertise, please contact Master and Treasurer Lindsay Newitt, M 07808 170 804 for details.

First Time Out Guide
We offer a wide range of meets, some with very little jumping at all, and even on the hedge days there are always ways round. The photos show us all jumping hedges because we all love those on our mantleshelves but you do not have to jump them! However, you do need a fit horse and sound brakes.

REPORT - team relay and gate jumping competition
On Sunday 19th July we held our first team relay and gate jumping competition at Poppinghole farm. It was a fun day, I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did?! A special thank you goes to Shane Carter and her family for having us there for the day. 
The course proved quite tricky with a mixture of cross country and show jumps and even a pub stop! 

The gate jumping was exciting to watch, we can't believe how big the ponies jumped.

The turnout was kindly sponsored by Attwood Farm Nursery School and judged by Nic Wheeler & Kate Dipper. The winners were Poppinghole well plastered - Shane Carter, Julie Williams & Edie Pender-Cudlip.

The results of the team relay are:-
1st Rother Valley Racers - Emma Baker, Hattie Bunday & Dinah Smith
2nd Eventers turned hunters- Edie Pender-Cudlip, Lisa Pilbeam & Kitty Stainsby
3rd The Wheelers - Rosie Wheeler, Connie Wheeler & Eleanor Wheeler
4th The no hopers - Chloe Penfold, Harriet Dipper & Amelia Dipper
5th Poppinghole well plastered - Shane Carter, Julie Williams & Edie Pender-Cudlip
Thanks Five Oak Country Store for the goody bags for the first three teams.

The results of the gate jumping are:-
14.2 and under - 1st Connie Wheeler
Rossette for highest RVRC member Hattie Bunday

14.3 and over - 1st Chloe Penfold
Rossette for highest RVRC member Kitty Stainsby

Trophy for the highest placed Coakham bloodhound subscriber Chloe Penfold.

Thank you to our photographer for the day Andrew Wickens. The pictures can be found on a link below.

Thank you very much Andy Keep, Nic Wheeler, Lynn Skinner, Nessie folwell, Dawn Penfold, Kate Dipper, Jo Field & Chris Field for all your help on and before the day.

Thank you to everyone that came and we hope to see you all again at our next one.
