CRAWLEY and Horsham Hunt South Pony Club’s annual Hunter Trials took place in Arundel Park recently by kind permission of the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk and racehorse trainer John Dunlop.

The permanent purpose-built hunter trial course includes water, ditches, steps and hedges, built to test and challenge riders of all ages

and capabilities.

The club, which was established in 1969, is privileged to be able to hold weekly working rallies, which include jumping, cross

country, dressage and mounted games in Arundel Park and the annual hunter trials event is a key fixture.

Joint District Commissioners, Karen Halls and Anne Pring encourage new members to come along and see for themselves the varied schedule of events, which is organised throughout the year with the help of the club’s 75 members and parents - ranging from summer camps to competitions throughout the South.

The trials featured five classes, supported by riders aged six, to a duo in a pair’s competition with the combined age of 113.
