Gransha plays host to Pony Spring Tour

Gransha Spring Pony Tour BR Farm
148 90CM: Anna McLean and ‘A Class Act’ competing in the 148 90cm class at the Pony Spring Tour at Gransha. (FW32-538NN)

THE Gransha Equestrian TRI Pony show was held on Saturday and Sunday, July 25 and 26. These competitions were a leg of the TRI Spring Tour and Gransha were delighted to finally be in a position to run the competitions.

All the Covid precautions were taken and extra volunteers drafted in to complete the track and trace information from each person attending.

RUNNER UP: Peter Morton and ‘Tynan Espresso’ came second in the 138 1m class at the Pony Spring Tour at Gransha. (FW32-537NN)

The 128cm ponies jumped on Saturday and all the classes ran on time, thanks to a very efficient starter, Tracey Howell! The judges, Linda Skillen, Lynn Thompson and Denise Withers were delighted with the smooth running of the show and were impressed with the quality of both pony and riding ability of the young competitors, not to mention the competitive spirit of the parents!

William Brown built challenging courses both days, assisted by Simon Jackson, but the riders were well able for them and enjoyed the excellent ground conditions and colourful fences.

The 148s and 138s jumped on Sunday, with two new judges, Nicola Tang and Sharon Cullen, along with Denis Withers. Again the quality of ponies was impressive and competitors had travelled from all over the country to attend the show.

The general opinion was that it was a successful well run show with excellent arenas and fences. The use of the new ‘sjilive’ pre-entry system is very helpful and will hopefully become the new normal!

Since the show, the TopSpec arena has been extended and is now 70m x 40m, which is suitable for full show jumping courses and, of course, an international size dressage arena! Organisers now look forward to hosting more successful shows in the future at Gransha.
