THE Crawley and Horsham South Pony Club had a good reason to celebrate recently with both its Senior and Junior teams’ success at the 2011 Area qualifier, of the Zone Mounted Games which took place at Eashling, Surrey recently.

The Zone Mounted games are held each year by The Pony Club UK nationally, and involve up to eight team games to test riders ability and agility, not only as individuals but as equals to maximisie their strengths as a team.

Each qualifying area involved competition from many Pony Club regions. Thanks to the direction and training given by Paul Armitage in Arundel since last October, the teams came home smiling and qualified for the Southern Zone competition, at Taunton Racecourse, Somerset.
