Midlands Area Awards Evening

First Class Ticket (Sophie Walker)

A fun night was had by all last weekend at Newark Showground where The South Notts Hunt Point-to-Point hosted their annual Final Furlong Ball incorporating the Midlands Awards Presentations.

160 point-to-point enthusiasts sat down to a scrumptious 4-course meal which included sirloin of beef which was carved at the table.

A very amusing version of Heads and Tails was played out with heads and tails being replaced by Pointing trivia questions that had been set by Nick Wilson from Weatherby’s. Three finalists fell at the final hurdle together when they all decided that there more than 100 p2p courses in the country (this year there are in fact 99).

The Midlands awards were presented by Chairman Charlie Moore and details of the winners are below. The revellers then danced the night away to Flipside.

LEADING HORSE – Dido (Mr B. Fox)



LADY RIDER – Sophie Walker


NOVICE RIDER – George Chatterton


NOVICE HORSE – Joint winners: First Class Ticket (Mr A. Godrich), Hadmeathello (Mr. J. Balding)

LEADING MARE - Kayjaydee (Mrs J. Broughton)

With thanks to Kelly Fretwell for the photos.
