Hodgemoor Cross Country Hunter Challenge Sunday 30th October 2016

26 competitors entered the Hodgemoor Cross Country Hunter Challenge on Sunday 30th October 2016 and jumped over 6 show jumps and straight on to the 22 cross country jumps at Homefarm Orchard, Chalfont St Giles. The weather remained misty throughout the morning and we could hardly see the far end of the course; walky-talkies were in use. Check out the movies and photos on Facebook. Class 1 over low jumps (1 foot to 2 foot 6) was won by Steph Reed on Romeo with a clear round and just 2 time faults (Time penalties 1 point per 5 seconds too slow or 1 point per 10 seconds too fast, against a bogey time of 3 minutes 05). 11-year old Alicia Slade on Billy was second by just one point. Jo Brett and our ex-champion Chris Edmunds tied for 3rd. Class 2 (jumps up to 3 feet including the ferocius Bread Loaf and Mr MacGregor's Chicken Hutch was also won by Steph Reed... a clear round and just 2 time faults again. Chris Edmunds pipped Jo Brett to 2nd. Over £200 were raised for Hodgemoor funds, which go towards maintaining the trails in Hodgemoor Woods.

No report.


Hodgemoor Le Trec – Sunday 19th April 2015 at Homefarm Orchard, Chalfont St Giles.

34 riders and their horses and ponies competed on a cold but dry day for the annual Le Trec event. Phase 1 obstacles and Phase 2 control of paces were held in the Bicknells’ bottom field. The Phase 3 Orienteering took riders through Hodgemoor and round the Seer Green Loop for and hour and a half to two hours.

Here are the complete results. You can download three spreadsheets here to get your complete detailed results and judges’ comments.

Stunning performance by Tessa Bayliss, first in each of the 3 Phases and of course overall. Sasha Budzynski 2nd, Aida Molineux 3rd, Jean Hicks 4th and Harriet Allen 5th (riding for Val Janes). Great performances across the field, let down only by poor reporting of times on the orienteering waypoints by some teams.

There are rosettes for riders placed in the top six of any Phase (and the sum of Phases 1 and 2) in both Open and Beginners classes but if you were top six in more than one phase or overall then you will get the more senior ranked rosette. Check with Susie by email info@hodgemoor.org.uk .

Well done, everybody. Another great Hodgemoor Trec and so enjoyable for horses and humans. Regards, Marcus.
