The Area 5 Prince Philip Cup Mounted Games Qualifying competition was held at Hampton, near Malpas, Cheshire on Saturday 5th May 2018.
It was hosted by Sir Watkin Williams Wynn Hunt Branch.
Six senior teams, seven junior teams and one pair competed to qualify for the zone competition in July.
Pony club branches represented were Berwyn and Dee, Cheshire Hunt South, East Cheshire, Flint and Denbigh, Tanatside and Sir Watkin Williams Wynn.
From the senior competition Sir Watkin Williams Wynn A and B team both qualified for zone by being the first and second placed teams. In the junior competition Cheshire Hunt South qualified in first place and Sir Watkin Williams Wynn qualified in second place. Tanatside were the only branch that entered a team in the team competition and they also qualified for zone.

It is with great regret that we have to announce that once again the Great British weather has beaten us.
Following an inspection at 10 a.m. today, and in the expectation of more rain today, it has been decided that the lorry parking area is too wet to allow vehicles on site and therefore with great reluctance we have had to abandon the Mounted Games competition due to be held at Little Leigh tomorrow, Sunday the 29th April 2018.
Please pass on this information to anyone you think may be intending to travel.
