2017 NFU Mutual National Quiz Final Winners …

… Cheshire Hunt North

After winning the Area 5 qualifier at Eirias Park on the 19th March the Cheshire Hunt North Quiz team had just under two weeks to prepare for the Quiz Final.

A total of 29 teams from all over the country competed at Addington Manor on the 2nd April with 18 Branches and 11 Centres taking part in the Quiz Final.

The quiz consisted of 9 rounds of topics;

  • The Pony Club and Ex Pony Club Equestrian Celebrities
  • Non Equine Achievement Badges
  • Competitive Sports and Competitions within the Pony Club
  • The Spanish Riding School
  • Keeping A Pony at Grass (Junior pairs)
  • Worming and Paddock Maintenance (Senior Pairs)
  • The individual practical round was ‘The Tack Room’
  • The Picture round was titled ‘What is this?’
  • Equestrian Sports at the Olympic Games
  • The Music Round.

After a short briefing the quiz got under way and then after the first four rounds the teams had a break for lunch. After lunch the teams were spilt with the seniors heading off to do their individual practical round leaving the junior pair to answer their questions on “Keeping A Pony at Grass”. The pairs swapped over with the juniors doing their individual practical round and the seniors their pairs round on “Worming and Paddock Maintenance”.

After a short break, the results were up and the girls from CHN were absolutely delighted to win. It was the first time at the finals for youngest members, it was Hannah’s third year in a row at the finals and for Georgina it was the second time she had won the Quiz Final.

An enormous ‘Thank you’ to Anna Sherry and Sarah Hodgson who give up their time to coach the quiz teams.
