Cowdray Park take Gannon honours at Pony Club Championships
Seventy-six teams flock to Cowdray Park for the three-day championships
THE AUDI PONY CLUB Championships were held at Cowdray Park Polo Club this weekend.
For the first time the Gannon final, for the oldest and most accomplished Pony Club players, was held on the Friday afternoon. Not for the first time however, it was won by the Cowdray Park team of George Pearson, Jack Taylor, Ralph Richardson and Freddie Dear. The quartet defeated Longdole Polo Club in the final to lift the Daily Telegraph Trophy for the third straight year.
The Hampshire Hunt won the Rendell section, while the Royal Artillery Hunt finished top of Ledner. Guards Polo Claub ran out the winnrs to win the Langford final and Silver Leys triumphed in the Hipwood section.
The hotly-contested Loriner and Surtees sections were won by Cotswold Hunt and South Berkshire respectively, while Surrey Union were named Handley Cross winners.
