Tivyside Pony Club hosted its festive show jumping event again this year.
The Tivyside Branch of the Pony Club held its 18th Annual Inter Branch Christmas Team Show Jumping on Saturday, December 2 at Moor Farm Equestrian Centre in Troopers Inn, Haverfordwest. The event attracted over 40 teams from area 18, which covers Cardigan, Bridgend and into Pembrokeshire.
The show jumping competition was designed to encourage and give all members the opportunity to jump the height they are most confident with, to be part of a team and to have fun. There were no age limits on the different heights, which ranged from 30cm to 85cm. Teams consisted of three or four members with three scores to count. The competition was run as a single phase.

The event was a great success, with many teams showing off their skills and spirit. The dress code was shirt, tie and Christmas jumpers or jackets. There was also a prize for the best decorated hat in each section. Rosettes were awarded to the first to sixth placed teams in each height, and sashes to 1st to 3rd placed teams.
