Hunter Trials success at Coniston Cold
9:00am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
Beautiful weather helped to make the new-style Coniston Hunter Trials at Coniston Cold a huge success.
With 160 entries, horses set off on the course around the Coniston Hall lake every two minutes for most of the day.
Competitors spanned the age spectrum ranging from nine years to pensioners.
Jane Pighills, joint master of the The Pendle Forest and Craven Hunt which organised the trials, said: “The whole event went like clockwork, was hugely supported by competitors and spectators and I think we definitely saw some serious equestrians of the future.
“It was aimed at everyone but we specifically wanted to encourage youngsters. They came, had a go and helped to make the day such a huge success.”
The hunt hopes to do the same again next year and is organising a schooling day in spring.
