In the Press: Musto sponsors The Pony Club’s new Eventing League
The below snippet was published in last month’s Scottish and Northern Equestrian Magazine about our new partnership with The Pony Club’s Eventing League:
‘The aim of the MUSTO Open Eventing League is to encourage Pony Club members to compete at Pony Club Open level, through the provision of increased opportunity to practice at the level and therefore prepare for the Pony Club Area Competitions and hopefully Pony Club Championships.
Any Pony Club Branches running an event with a Pony Club Open (1.10m) class can register their competition and all Pony Club members taking part will be entered into the MUSTO Open Eventing League. Through competing, members will earn points for getting placed and completing double clear rounds, and the horse and rider combination with the most points at the end of the series will win.
“There has already been strong interest in the MUSTO Open Eventing League with over 22 competitions already set to run all over the UK” commented Jenny Yates, secretary for Pony Club Eventing. There are some amazing rewards for those taking part, with MUSTO clothing goodies up for grabs for competition places 1-3, and the overall league winner receiving a day’s training from a 4* Event Rider and MUSTO Ambassador, as well as a full equestrian outfit courtesy of MUSTO!
Training bursaries continue down the prize list from £200 for second place, to £50 for 10 place. It seems only natural that we show our support to an institution as well respected as The Pony Club and encourage Britain’s young hopefuls to become involved in competitive riding also.”’
There’s a bit more about our exciting new competition over on The Pony Club’s member site:
‘The aim of the MUSTO Open Eventing League is to encourage Members to compete at Open Level, and to provide an opportunity to practise at this level and prepare for the Area Competitions and Championships.
On this page we hope to post images from the days so, even if you are not quite there yet, you can see what you can achieve when you reach Open level competition!’
‘The inaugural competition in the MUSTO Open Eventing League was held on March 6th at the Brocklesby Hunt Branch One Day Event, Brocklesby Park, North Lincolnshire.
The course, which provides excellent going on old parkland, was designed by Joe Weller and built by Pony Club parents in 2009, under Joe’s supervision.’
‘The MUSTO Open Eventing League class was won by Tiffany Eggleston (18), from the Quorn Hunt Branch, riding Politically Supreme; Tiffany had travelled over 100 miles to take part! Placed second was Jess Milson (17) from the Brocklesby Hunt Branch, riding Billy the Cuff.
Prizes were presented by, reigning Young Rider European Champion, Emily Parker who was competing in the Level 5 non Pony Club Event.’
