Big Money Draw For Stars Of The Future

Juniors get their second chance to ride for big money when Hickstead repeats its Pony Masters class at the British Jumping Derby Meeting (June 3-6).

The Hickstead Pony Masters, successfully introduced last year, gives the under-16s an opportunity to ride and compete in the famous International
Arena as well as earn a share in the £7,500 prize money - the richest prize for juniors in Europe.

Competition begins with two classes in rings two and three designed to whittle entries down to 20 for Saturday's third leg in the International Arena and then to 10 for Sunday's final, where the winner takes £2,500.

"This is a class where the prize money is attractive, but for the really keen juniors an equal attraction will be to compete in the International Arena in front of a large audience," said Hickstead owner Douglas Bunn. "We could be watching future winners DFS Derby, which follows shortly afterwards in the same arena."
