The Golden Hippo Award
Brighton, 10 May 2004

At Brighton Horse Driving Trials this weekend H.R.H The Duke of Edinburgh presented the Golden Hippo award to John Pickford.

The award is given to the competitor who endures the most bad luck during the previous season, in John?s case however his misfortunes seem to continue into this year as recently during coursebuilding at Farleigh he badly injured his hand and is likely to be unable to compete for the early part of the season.

Prince Philip enjoyed competing at Brighton at the first National event of the year and succeeded in taking the honours in the Pony Team Class driving Her Majesty?s team of fell ponies.
