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) this will be taken into account when winners are chosen.
Point’s day trophies: Points days are to encourage the riders in fun competition and for those who are not able to compete at outside events yet to be able to 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 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. Only events held by a Zone 1 Club will be accepted and points are to be given to the points person within one month of winning the points.
Presentation and Rider Class: 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 8yrs and under, 11yrs and under, 12-14yrs, 15-16yrs & 17 & over.
Log Book Award: 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. The instructors check the books half way through the year and again closer to end of year trophy day.
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 Triers Award: Lyndall was a member back in the 80's who donated this trophy to give to a person who tries to be involved and wants to be fully involved within pony 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 riders 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.
