2009

The 2009 Atherstone Hunt Pony Club Prince Philip Cup Games "A" Team.

TheTeam

We were members of the Atherstone Hunt Pony Club and had over 30 members involved in the PPC teams at senior and Junior level.

Our aim wais to qualify for Prince Philip Cup Competition at the Horse of the Year Show at the NEC in October 2009. Only six teams out of 350 clubs qualified for HOYS.

To do so we trained weekly from January until we either qualified for HOYS or were eliminated. To qualify for HOYS you have to be in the top 3 or 4 depending on the enteries at the Area 7 Competition in May and win at the Zone competition in July. Again if you are in the top 4 at the Zone you will go to the Pony Club Championships where one team will qualify for HOYS.

This discipline is great fun, potentially dangerous but very rewarding and requires horsemanship and skill on ponies that love the job. read more . . .

We would like to THANK all those who supported us, we truly appreciated the support.
