Photographer for the Day

Area 9 Prince Phillip Cup Games was hosted by Berkeley Hunt South Pony Club with help from Beaufort Hunt Pony Clubs Paul Bird. Unfortunately the original date had to be cancelled and with the continuing bad weather a change of venue was also needed. A very nice venue was found at Dauntsey, Wiltshire and on Saturday June 7th Area 9 had their Mounted Games competition. One shower of rain was all we had in the morning while the senior tack and turnout competition was going on, from then on we had a lovely day.

The senior competition had eight teams competing which meant two heats and a final. North Hereford Pony Club had a great morning winning four out of the eight races and winning the competition, things then got a little bit tighter with Cotswold Vale Hunt Pony Club coming 2nd and Croome Pony Club taking the 3rd and final qualifying place, having tied on points with Beaufort Hunt Pony Club, a tie break race was run and Croome one this. Good luck to North Hereford, Cotswold Vale and Croome who are off to zone, we all wish you the best of luck. Beaufort took 4th slot, Old Berks 5th and Berkeley Hunt South 6th.

In the afternoon we had the junior competition with 9 teams competing, two heats and a final again. The clear winners here were the Worcestershire Hunt Pony Club winning 5 out of the seven races, the competition then was a bit tighter with 5 points between 2nd and 6th. In 2nd place was South Hereford & Ross Harriers Pony Club, 3rd Cotswold Vale Farmers, 4th Beaufort Hunt, 5th Old Berks Stars and 6th Berkeley Hunt South Pony Club. Congratulations to Worcestershire, South Hereford & Ross Harriers and Cotswold Vale Farmers who are off to zone, good luck to you all. We then had a novice competition with 5 teams competing, we had an assisted section and a lead rein section, all had great fun with Berkeley Hunt South winning the assisted and Old Berks coming 2nd.

In the lead rein section Cotswold Vale Farmers were victorious, Berkeley Hunt South 2nd and the Worcestershire 3rd.

A great day was had by all, with everyone encouraging one another some true team spirit was witnessed. We have certainly come on from last year with even children vaulting on this year, it was lovely to see. Well done to all the members involved you should all be very proud of yourselves. A huge thank you to all those that made the day very special and very successful. Good luck to all those going to zone, we are sure you are going to be very competitive this year.
