Donkey Delilah rescued by WHW

One of World Horse Welfare’s more unusual rescue cases recently came in the form of a young donkey who was found fly-grazing at various locations around Middlesex including a supermarket car park and outside of a doctor’s surgery, whilst being travelled and ‘stabled’ overnight in the back of a transit van.

Delilah, as she has been named, is now in the care of World Horse Welfare’s Glenda Spooner Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre enjoying a much more traditional donkey life as she undergoes rehabilitation. World Horse Welfare Field Officer, Nick White, had previously visited Delilah, advising her owners on the care she required and providing forage.

He said:“The first time I was alerted to Delilah, she was less than a year old, very frightened and living overnight in the back of a transit van which she had to jump up into. The van had no ventilation and only rags on the floor with no fresh air and would have been very cold during the winter nights. During the day she was tethered in the car park of a DIY superstore near Heathrow and her owners would not be parted with her, despite my offers to take her into the charity’s care.

 

“I continued to monitor her condition and saw her in a number of different locations. On a visit one day in March, Delilah was clearly exhausted and lying on the grass outside of a local doctor’s surgery with no water. This is clearly not ideal for any equine, but particularly for donkeys who rely so heavily on companionship and at such a young age too. I knew we had to try and get her out of this situation.

“I met with the people who had been caring for her and it became apparent that her previous owners had moved on, leaving Delilah behind and with no provisions for her care. Her current carers were about to be evicted and could not take Delilah with them so they gladly signed her over into World Horse Welfare’s ownership. Delilah was then transported to our Glenda Spooner Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre where she has since been undergoing rehabilitation and learning all about what the life of an equine should be.

“Coming across a fly-grazing donkey is certainly not a common occurrence in my job with World Horse Welfare but thankfully we were able to save Delilah from this situation and she now has a bright future ahead.”

Delilah has been thriving in her new life at World Horse Welfare and is enjoying making lots of new friends with the various horses and ponies at the Somerset Rescue and Rehoming Centre. Delilah’s friendly nature and good looks have already proved a hit with visitors to Glenda Spooner Farm and a recent competition to find a fitting name for this furry donkey had over 100 entries. The winning name was suggested by visitor Kate in honour of her daughter, Delilah, and an official naming ceremony is soon to take place.

RDA group’s 40th birthday

The South Downs Group of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) has the distinction of being one of the oldest groups of its kind in the country. Recently it celebrated its 40th birthday in style at its current premises at Bridge House in Slinfold.
The celebrations, were attended  by Horsham MP Jeremy Quin, who met group chairman Carolyn Heitman and chatted with riders and group helpers, before  watching displays, alongside other guests.

.
This hard-working RDA group was founded in 1977 and run  at that time by Jill Blake. It was based for many years at the foot of the South Downs at Pound Lane, Upper Beeding and brought the joy of riding to a variety of youngsters, including from special schools in the area.

 .
Then it made the move from the vagaries of the weather at its outdoor facilities to an indoor school with a synthetic all-weather surface at Brinsbury. in September 2007. Main riders with the group at that time were from Hillside School, based at Portslade, in East Sussex, and it covered a wide area.

Group founder, Jill Blake

 
Hillside School remained with it from its Upper Beeding days and the group also catered for other riders,who performed well at  regional championships at Hickstead.
More recently  the group moved again– a little further from the South Downs this time – to Bridge House  at Slinfold where the facilities are ideal for this hard-working group.
A large indoor school now means it can operate all year round, and a lovely well maintained woodland track very close by, enables it to take the riders outside in good weather, which is considered a real treat by riders and volunteers alike. It is very grateful to the owner of Bridge House,  Liz McIlraith,  for her on-going support for the group.

On Thursday mornings, it runs three riding sessions, offering riding opportunities to adults and children with quite a broad spectrum of disabilities from brain injury to autism and dyspraxia. It also have a smaller Tuesday afternoon session.
The ratio of volunteers to riders is necessarily high.   For every rider, a volunteer is needed to lead the horse and at least one side-walker to walk (or run) alongside the rider, to give guidance and to offer support and reassurance.
The riding experience can be hugely rewarding – it can be exciting, or have a calming effect, it can give freedom,  and a unique experience of movement never possible “on the ground” and for many just a very special interaction with the ponies and horses which are at the centre of everything the group does.

Carolyn Heitman, chairman of the group explained: “Before we even get to the point of rider meeting horse, there is a tremendous amount of work which goes on behind the scenes.
” We need a specific type of horse that can cope with the differences that come with disabled people.   We have to do a lot of work with the horses to prepare them.  Even something as simple as having two people walking alongside a horse, whilst being ridden, is unusual for a horse, and can be unsettling for them.”

Volunteers and riders alike become very fond of the horses and ponies used.

 Whilst part of the national charity. Riding for the Disabled Association, like all RDA groups the South Downs RDA is run as an individual charity, and as such is self-funding, and all members of the group are volunteers.

Nigel Coupe wins Hickstead Derby

Britain’s Nigel Coupe rode Golvers Hill to victory in the Al Shira’aa Derby yesterday at Hickstead, following a two-way jump-off with Harriet Nuttall.

Nigel, 46, first rode in this class in 1990 and has been knocking on the Derby door for a number of years, finishing second in 2015 and fifth in this class 12 months ago. Drawn 16th out of the 26 starters, Nigel was the first rider to produce a faultless round, and for a long time he remained the sole clear.

It wasn’t until the third last combination to go, Harriet Nuttall and A Touch Imperious, that another clear round was recorded and a jump-off guaranteed.

Both riders came back to tackle the shortened course, with first to go Nigel setting a strong pace. But his hopes of producing a clear and putting the pressure on Harriet were dashed when he had the Derby rails down after the open water.

Harriet could then risk going for a steady clear, but when the Derby rails caught her out as well she had to kick on – and unluckily the final fence also fell, leaving her on eight faults and in second place.

It’s a position Harriet, 27, has held for three consecutive years in the Hickstead Derby, and she was also second in yesterday’s British Speed Derby, a class she did win here 12 months ago.

But while there was disappointment for Harriet, for Nigel and Golvers Hill it was a day of celebrations as the Lancashire-based rider finally had his name added to the iconic Boomerang Trophy. He also gets to take home and keep the new Al Shira’aa Trophy, which has been especially designed in celebration of the new title sponsorship of this famous showjumping class.

“It’s amazing – however you imagine it would be to win the Derby, it probably feels about 100 times better!” said Nigel. “It’s an amazing venue and the ground is second to none. I’d come down to Hickstead when I was on ponies, and then stay on to watch the Derby.”

Nigel paid tribute to Golvers Hill, Susan Simmons’ 14-year-old Irish Sports Horse gelding who came to Hickstead on the back of a recent win in the Hamburg Derby Trial.

“If you haven’t got a horse capable you won’t be anywhere near winning. I’m forever indebted to him,” he added. “He likes the limelight. There are probably better, more talented horses out there but he just loves his job. It’s without a doubt my biggest win.”

 

 

Michael wins Hickstead Derby trial

Olympic showjumper Michael Whitaker won yesterday’s Bunn Leisure Derby Trial at Hickstead, relegating his 27-year-old nephew William Whitaker to the runner-up spot.

Only three riders jumped clear in the first round of the Derby Trial course, which introduces many of Hickstead’s famous natural obstacles and decides the starting field for Sunday’s Al Shira’aa Derby, with the top 35 qualifying.

Reigning Derby champions William Whitaker and Glenavadra Brilliant were the first to go in the jump-off, setting a time of 70.25sec but knocking the final fence to end on four faults. Next in was Michael with his 15-year-old chestnut Viking, who jumped clear in a time of 71.50sec. The final rider into the International Arena was Joss Williams (Culmore Prospect), but eight faults ended their hopes and gave Michael, 57, the win.

Michael has won the Derby four times – the first time in 1980 when he was just 20, and then again three years in a row from 1991-1993 with the great Monsanta. He plans to ride Gentleman in the Al Shira’aa Derby, and now must decide whether to give his Nations Cup regular Viking a chance in the feature class as well.

“I’m in two minds about whether to do the Derby with him on Sunday,” he said, adding that he would need to discuss with the Performance Manager for Jumping, Di Lampard, in case the horse will be needed for British team duties. “He’s never been in the Derby before, but as he’s getting older he’s more rideable – he was a bit wild when he was younger.”

The top 35 riders in today’s Bunn Leisure Derby Trial have qualified for the Al Shira’aa Derby, and placings will pass down the line should any riders not declare for the Sunday showcase class.

A new class took place this afternoon, called the Bunn Leisure Derby Two-Phase. Riders had to jump clear round the first part of the course in order to progress to the second, timed phase.

Ireland’s Peter Moloney took the prize with a time of 37.69sec with Ghana, while another member of the Whitaker clan – William’s cousin and Michael’s nephew Joe – took runner-up spot with Diola.

The main focus of Saturday’s action at Hickstead is the British Speed Derby, in which riders must gallop at speed over some of the famous natural obstacles in the International Arena, including the Road Crossing and the Irish Bank.

Tickets are available at www.hickstead.co.uk as well as on the gate, while the action will also be broadcast worldwide via Hickstead.TV.

Holly wins Hickstead feature class

Four months after breaking her leg in a riding fall, Holly Smith  won yesterday’s feature class at the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting – the Bunn Leisure Derby Tankard

Holly was out of the saddle for 13 weeks after breaking her leg in a fall at home back in February. But after extensive rehabilitation she has returned to top level competition, and there was no stopping the Leicestershire rider  as she claimed the top prize in the 1.50m competition with the nine-year-old Quality Old Joker.

Holly was the fastest of seven riders in the jump-off, finishing more than a second quicker than Ireland’s Billy Twomey (Eindhoven GH) in second place.

“He’s got such a big stride, and he was exceptional out there – I have a lot of Irish horses who respond well to being dared,” Holly said about Quality Old Joker. “He’ll jump in the Bunn Leisure Derby Trial tomorrow, and probably have a crack at the Al Shira’aa Derby on Sunday.”

The first international class of the show was the Stoner Jewellers Vase, with the top prize going to Nottinghamshire’s Louise Saywell. Riding the 14-year-old stallion Peiter VI, Louise set a quick time of 71.83sec that no one else could match.

Having been drawn 28th to go out of 49 starters, Louise had a long wait until her win was confirmed. “I wasn’t nervous watching, though I did think the time was beatable – I didn’t go all out. He goes into the ring and gives 110% every time. He made the turns and he’s just naturally fast – if I get it right with him he’ll win it.”

Yesterday’s victory was significant for Louise, who hasn’t won a big class at Hickstead since she was on ponies. “The last time I had a big win here it was on 12.2hhs,” she added.

Polo player turned showjumper Max Routledge also enjoyed a successful day at the All England Jumping Course. The Surrey-based rider won the Astore & Sons 1.35m Open Championship with Lord Of Arabia, as well as the Annual Grade C Championship on Centos Girl.

Today’s main class is the Bunn Leisure Derby Trial, in which the highest placed riders will qualify for Sunday’s showcase – the Al Shira’aa Derby. Tickets are available online or at the gate.

Petworth 12 Goal Cup final

The Final of the Petworth 12 goal Cup at the weekend saw a tough encounter between two local rivals, Cowdray Vikings and Emlor C. Playing alongside Lila Pearson in her Cowdray Viking side were Byron Watson (3 goals) at 2, Gaston Laulhe (6 goals) at 3 and Ed Hitchman (4 goals) at Back. Laura Ormerod’s Emlor C featured the patron at 1, Jose Ramon Araya (2 goals) at 2, Jack Richardson (6 goals) at 3 and Henry Fisher (4 goals) at Back, making two very evenly matched teams.

In a busy first chukka, Cowdray Vikings were first to score with a 60 yard penalty accurately taken by Ed Hitchman. Jack Richardson followed up with two good field goals and Byron Watson equalized at 2-2  and following intense action Cowdray Vikings took a lead of 4-2 at half time, writes Liz Higgins

By the end of chukka 4 with the score on 4-4. The match went into an extra chukka but with no quick-fire solution. The teams battled on for a further five minutes, the pace so intense that Watson made a poor defensive move and was given a yellow card and a penalty 30 yard awarded to Emlor C. Fisher sent the ball between the posts and Emlor C had won the Petworth 12 goal on a score of 5-4.

From an entry of six teams, Peter Barfoot’s Maiz Dulce and Andrew Swaffield’s Alcedo met in the Final of the 6 goal Jersey Lilies Cup. Millie Cooper has taken the place of Peter Barfoot, still out through injury, in the 2017 season and was joined by Mtt Pitts (2 goals) playing at number 2, Jack Berner (3 goals) at 3 and Derreck Bratley (3 goals) at Back. With Andrew Swaffield at number 1, Daniel Batchelor (-1) played at 2, Nick Clague (3 goals) at 3 and Bauti Sorzana (5 goals) at Back.

Young Daniel Batchelor was first to score for Alcedo and by half time the team was 4-0 ahead. Maiz Dulce pulled up with three goals in chukka 3, answered by a 60 yard penalty from Sorzana giving Alcedo a lead of 5-3 . A determined effort by Maiz Dulce in the final chukka saw two good goals from Matt Pitts and a 60 yard penalty by Derreck Bratley nail a victory for Barfoot’s side on a final score of 6-5.

The 15 goal Bryan Bethell Cup, open to Cowdray and non-Cowdray teams, saw an entry of six teams including King Power and El Remanso but it was Dr Badr-El-Din’s Golden Falcons and Alejandro Peñafiel’s Rosario which made it through to the Final.

Golden Falcons took a 6-4 lead to close chukka 2. Chukka 3 saw excellent play by Hernan Muzzio, his first goal coming within seconds of the start. His brother Alejandro contributed another and Hernan’s next was the third goal of the chukka before the first whistle of the match was blown.

Awarded a 60 yard penalty, James Beim lofted a straight ball between the posts to even the score at 7-7 .Alejandro Muzzio later re-claimed the ball and sent it forward to his brother, who made another Rosario goal look easy. The score moved on to 8-7 in Rosario’s favour.

Later the goals all went in favour of Rosario with Alejandro and Hernan Muzzio tying up the match between them making three goals and ending with a victory for Rosario on 13-10.

Mrs Annette Bethell presented the Bryan Bethell Cup, donated to the club in memory of her husband Bryan, father of Cowdray Park Polo Club’s Polo Manager Chris Bethell, to a delighted Alejandro Peñafiel.

Harriet aims to win Hickstead Derby

Somerset-based Harriet Nuttall is among the leading contenders for this year’s Al Shira’aa Derby at Hickstead, having been runner up for the past two years.
This year she will bid to become only the sixth woman to win the Hickstead Derby in the 57-year history of the class.
Harriet, 27, has produced two four-fault rounds to finish joint-second in the Derby in both 2015 and 2016, making her one of the strongest competitors for this year’s Al Shira’aa Derby.
She was unlucky not to win last year, when her rangy Irish gelding, A Touch Imperious, jumping clear until the very last fence. But while the crowd thought they were about to witness a historic clear, Harriet thought she’d already picked up faults earlier on course.

“I thought I had a foot in the water jump and had just finished on 4 faults, so I was just really happy to have had another good round. When I circled after the last fence, it was only then I realised I’d had it down,” she says.
“The Derby is so difficult to win, you have to have so much luck on your side and everything has to be right on the day, and last year it just wasn’t my day.”
Riders who wish to compete in the Al Shira’aa Derby must qualify in the Bunn Leisure Derby Trial (this Friday June 23), with the top 35 combinations going through to Sunday’s showcase.
Other lady riders who are entered for the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting – and who could have a good chance in the Derby itself – include Esib Power, Ellen Whitaker and Jessie Drea.
Ireland’s Esib Power finished tenth in last year’s Hickstead Derby with Doonaveragh O One, with whom she went on to win the MS Amlin Eventers’ Challenge at the Longines Royal International Horse Show last July. Esib is an international event rider who has competed at four-star level, and she is undaunted by the demands of the Derby’s permanent obstacles such as the 10ft 6in Derby Bank.
She is the daughter of former international showjumper Captain Con Power, and the sister of jockey Robert Power, the winner of this year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Ellen Whitaker, whose cousin William is the reigning Hickstead Derby champion, came very close to winning the class in 2004 with Locarno. In the end, she had to settle for second place behind her uncle John and his catch ride, Buddy Bunn. Ellen has two horses entered at the show, and could well be one to look out for in the Bunn Leisure Derby Trial.
Jessica Drea is one of Britain’s fastest rising stars. Having been travelling reserve for Great Britain and the FEI World Equestrian Games, she then took some time out of the sport to have her first child. She also has two horses entered at the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting, including the talented Mullaghdrin Touch the Stars.
The Hickstead Derby was first held in 1961, and a year later a woman lifted the trophy, with Pat Smyth winning on board Flanagan. The ever-popular Marian Coakes (later Mould) was the next female victor, winning in 1967 on board the diminutive Stroller and starting a hat-trick of female winners.
Tickets for the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting (22-25 June) are on sale now at www.hickstead.co.uk.
