The Mini-Major is a popular class which sees Pony Club members pair up with top international riders in a thrilling competition to each complete a fault-free Show Jumping round in the quickest time. Last year’s competition saw leading British female riders, Laura Renwick and Holly Smith, as well as crowd favourites William Funnell and Guy Williams, line-up alongside young Pony Club riders from across the country.
Travelling across from Northern Ireland to represent the Iveagh Pony Club will be Charlotte McCracken, who along with Millie Lawson from Deeside in Scotland and Tom Hogan from Gwynedd in Wales, will be reigniting the battle with their English counterparts. Essex will have two representatives, Hollie Gerken from the Essex Branch and Liala Ramaci from Essex Hunt North, with Bisley and Sandown Chase, North Warwickshire and Banwell represented by Tommy Goody, Isabella Beecroft-Luckett and Emmie Horner respectively.
The furious competition between the young riders and their 5* counterparts is set to take place during the afternoon of Wednesday 18 December.
