Trophies available for members.

Hendra Pony Club has a number of different trophies available to be awarded.   The club encourages riders to try for trophies in different areas, so all riding members have a chance to win. Time and effort put into riding their horse pays off when they can see awards for their efforts.


Muster trophies: For over all highest points over the year.  There are 3 trophies available: 1st, 2nd & 3rd. (This award is mostly for riders not up to competing outside, just starting out or don’t have transport to events, or perhaps have a new horse or horse health issues that prevent them from attending outside competitions) this will be taken into account when winners are chosen.


Point’s day trophies: Points days are to encourage riders in fun competition and to help riders gain confidence. These will be either in age groups or ability groups depending on the event & the instructor’s advice. Trophies are awarded to the highest point’s winner in each age group.


Individual discipline trophies: Riders who win points at Zone 1 clubs events and formal events outside of Zone 1 (ie; while competing in our formal uniform) are able to win a trophy for highest points for each discipline. Disciplines can be Dressage, Show jumping, Hunter trials, Combined Training, Gymkhana's, Derby, ODE, Mounted games and Camp drafting. Points are to be given to the Chief Instructor within one month of winning the points (via; hpc.points@outlook.com).  Note:  NO points can be earned on Z1 muster days.


Presentation and Rider Class trophies: This competition is part of our Points Days where Presentation &  Rider Class are awarded per event and whoever wins the highest points of the 2 events will receive a trophy. Age groups are 11yrs and under, 12-14yrs, 15-16yrs, 17-25yrs and seniors.


Log Book Shields: The club encourages riders to keep a log book to keep track of what they have done with their horse during the year.  There are 2 age groups 15yrs and under and 16yrs and over. Log books must be handed in to the Chief Instructor no later than November 1st each year.


Leanne Linnard Triers Award: Donated by MP Leanne Linnard for the person who tries but may not have the skills yet to succeed, but tries to do what they can without complaint showing good sportsmanship.


Lyndall Vaughan Involvement Award: Lyndall was a member back in the 80's, her family donated this trophy to give to a rider who actively gets involved and wants to be fully involved within pony club.  This award covers not only riding but also around the grounds, canteen, out at events and any activity organized by the club.


Garrad Shields: The Garrad family donated 3 perpetual plaques to the club which date back to the early days of 1969. There are 3 age groups: 12yrs & under, 13-16yrs & 17yrs and over. The trophies are for people who show good horsemanship, ability to help others, may not be riding members but put in time for the club and other members, they may not win but show good spirit when at outside events or within the club.


Progress Awards:  Bronze, Silver and Gold.   These awards are given to riders who have shown throughout the year that they are progressing in their riding and deserve recognition for that effort.  Riders are unlikely to progress to the next level within a year as it can and usually does take some years for rider's skill levels to improve to the next level.

 

Volunteer of the Year:   This perpetual trophy was donated to the club by Fiona Mamet (Club President 2016-  ) to give recognition to the club member who has given of their time and effort without complaint throughout the year.  The Volunteer of the Year is chosen by the current President and will be awarded to the member who volunteers without being asked and can be relied upon to happily help as needed. 


Horse Care Mastership Shield:  Created and donated by Master Farrier, Steve Crosbie in 2018.  This shield was presented to the club by Steve to be awarded annually to the member who shows outstanding care for their horse (including good hoof care, grooming, exercise, health care and wound management).   


To be eligible to receive trophies, agisting members need to of have completed their agistment contract, including 20 hours of working bee's and non-agisting riding members need to have attended musters, competitions, working bees and/or fundraising events during the year.
