Leonie, Sara and Phillipa Howe all competed at the recent Cricklands National event. Leonie took part, and won, the Evolution Pony class, whilst Sara and Phillipa were battling for selection to represent Team GBR at the Combined Pony World Championships.

Philippa drove Sox in the Advanced Single Pony class, photographed below multitasking whilst walking the cones course with Baby Edward. Sara also had a very busy weekend driving both her and Tricia’s Pony Team, but also Barbara Kingsley-Monks’ Pony Pair.

Phillipa Howe driving clear in the cones, although the vehicle here may not have complied with the latest rulebook.

Show Organiser James Broome commented, “We hold equestrian events at our centre almost every week of the year, and I’m sure that this is the first time that we have ever had three generations of the same family competing together. Seeing Philippa walk the course with Baby Edward really put the icing on the cake for me, showing just how family orientated the sport of Horse Driving Trials really is.”
