Young riders compete in show jumping event at the fair

The Westcountry Equine Fair, featuring the Pony Club horse and hound show jumping challenge, takes place at Westpoint near Exeter next month.

Eight pony club teams from across the South West are taking part in the fast-paced competition, in which riders jump a course followed by runners and their dogs.

The Pony Club gives riders under 25 the chance to learn nine exciting disciplines, and the Equine Fair is an opportunity for them to perform in an arena in front of a large crowd.

Saturday’s competitors are Cotley Hunt, Eggesford, Taunton Vale Harriers and Tiverton Hunt. On Sunday, Four Burrow Hunt, Silverton Hunt, South Devon West and South Pool Pony Club are taking part.
