QHPC successThe QH Pony Club achieved a major victory at the Pony Club National Championships held at Cholmondley Castle on Friday 21 August. Their young Novice team, Violet Barton, Molly Brown, Hannah Spray and Lily Walker, qualified for the National Championships at Broomfield Hall Equestrian Centre in Derbyshire and then went on to compete at the Championships against 39 other teams of 4 riders from all over the UK and Ireland over 2 challenging rounds. They all rode brilliantly and were immaculately turned out. 13 teams finished on zero after the first round, held in front of the beautiful backdrop of Cholmondley Castle. The Quorn Hunt PC team were victorious after a tense and testing second round, which was cleverly built and caused problems for many of the competitors. It was nail-biting for their parents and supporters who watched anxiously. They were all absolutely thrilled and proud to have won such a prestigious competition, becoming the best Novice team in the UK.
