Expertise Aplenty on day four of The Pony Club Championships

The penultimate day of the Berkeley Group Pony Club Championships brought another exciting day of competition; with Members giving it their all to secure their place on the podium.

For the second consecutive year, the Elite Show Jumping win went to Grace Wallace from the Cheshire Hunt South and Ilena VD Bisschop. Grace said the win was ‘amazing’ as they didn’t have the best start to the season. She commented: “She pulled a shoe off at a show in April and injured herself, so she has been out of work and this is only our second show back.” Grace also came 3rd riding a new horse, Ecarentina.

In the Intermediate Team Show Jumping it was a win for the Essex and Suffolk Hunt team of Eliza Tribe, Phoebe Prideaux, Emma D’Angiebae and Carrie Munroe. They were surprised and very happy to have won as they came 3rd at Areas with a slightly different team which included Cordelia Barlow who Emma filled in for today. 

The Just Chaps Senior Mounted Games Championships saw a closely fought final, with the coveted Prince Philip Cup places being decided in the last two nail-biting races. Having secured their tickets to Horse of the Year Show, the Atherstone A team and North Warwickshire, went into a run-off for first and second places where North Warwickshire finished on top of the podium.

North Warwickshire said going to HOYS felt ‘surreal’ and ‘unexpected.’ They are most looking forward to the curtains opening and them entering the arena for the first time. Trainer Lisa Davis said she was ‘thrilled to bits’ with the team, and added “I knew they could do it!”

The team from Atherstone, trained by Janey Surman and Lucinda Weir, said they felt ‘really good’ with Ellis adding he’s looking forward to a week off school for HOYS!

PC110 Eventing top honours went to the Old Berkshire Hunt team of Max Warburton (with two rides), Jack Whiteford and Henry Hobby. They were ‘really pleased’ to have won, especially as they are a group of boys. They said: “All the horses went really well, but there were a couple of sticky moments in the water.” 

Tomorrow we wave a fond farewell to Cholmondeley Castle, but before we do we have the fabulous Musical Ride, PC100 Eventing, Centre Equitation and the judging of the John King Young Artist competition to look forward to.
