Hayman-Joyce is thrilled to announce its support and sponsorship of the Hayman-Joyce Pony Club Pairs Relay Challenge at this year’s Moreton Show.
In an exciting twist for 2023, this beloved competition was transformed into a Pony Club spectacle, bringing together teams of two ponies and riders for a thrilling relay event. Competitors navigated challenging fences, showcasing their equestrian prowess within the grandeur of the Grand Arena, all in pursuit of the coveted Hayman-Joyce Challenge Trophy.
The event garnered tremendous interest, with an oversubscribed field of 16 teams, each vying for victory. As the ponies galloped, jumped and executed precision turns, the audience passionately cheered on their favourite teams, adding to the electric atmosphere.
The semi-finals saw an epic showdown between Beatrice and Bella of the Galloping Greys and Bridget and Jack of The Bicester Broncos, with The Bicester Broncos securing their spot in the final. Simultaneously, Grace and Flora of Moo-Bob faced off against Ellie and Natasha of Beaufort Babes, with Beaufort Babes prevailing and earning their place in the championship round.
The final was a nail-biting contest, with mere seconds separating the teams. In the end, Beaufort Babes emerged triumphant as the inaugural winners of the Pony Club Pairs Relay competition. The prestigious Hayman-Joyce Challenge Trophy was presented by Tom Hayman-Joyce, representing the event’s sponsors.
Tom expressed his enthusiasm, saying: “I was thrilled to witness this competition evolve into a Pony Club event for the first time. It provides young riders with the remarkable opportunity to showcase their skills in front of a vast audience. Witnessing the agility of the ponies and the bravery of the riders was truly a spectacle. Congratulations to all the participating teams, and I look forward to welcoming you back for another thrilling competition next year.”
