At the recent BSPS Summer Championship show at Arena UK Grantham, four girls from west Wales beat off strong opposition from other teams from throughout the UK to win the Inter-country working hunter pony championship.

The Welsh team consisted of Bea Meyrick, Danielle Gardham, Hanah Watts, and Jenny Yates, and they triumphed over teams from England, Scotland and Ireland.

This is the first time for a number of years that the coveted trophy has been won by a Welsh team.

To add further glory to the nation, Bea Meyrick also went on to become champion individual in the competition.

The team was trained by Lynne Lloyd, who along with the girls, is looking forward to next year’s home international which will be held in Ireland.
