Cumberland Farmers’ Hunt (South) are top quizzers

Cumberland Farmers’ Hunt (South) got off to a great start this year with a win at The Pony Club Area 2 Quiz. The winning team of Breanne Kelso, Eleanor Armstrong, Miles Thomas and Emily Watson will now travel to Addington Manor, Buckinghamshire, for The Pony Club National Quiz Finals, on April 14th.   

CFHS also came 7th with their team of Connie Cartmel, Zara Faulder, Teigan Lothian and Kitty Robinson. Team Reserve, Matthew Watson, was a very useful helper on the day, giving out and collecting question papers.  

The 10 teams competing, at Newbiggin near Penrith, travelled from Cumbria, Northumberland and Durham. They answered questions in 10 rounds with varied topics including World Equestrian Games, working dogs, poisonous plants, equine behaviour and The Pony Club. 

In second place and also qualifying for the final was Finchale View Pony Club Centre from Houghton-le-Spring – they were 2018 National Champions!
