A team from Romney Marsh Pony Club has qualified for the Horse of the Year Show.

Connie Wheeler (14), Zara Jenner (13), Caroline Barbour (14), Eleanor Wheeler (14), Elliott Barbour (15) and William Nunn (13), trained by Rob Taylor, will travel to Birmingham on October 8.

They will stay in the west midlands for six days and compete for the supreme prize of the Prince Philip Cup at the NEC. They will join the other five teams and between them all they would have beaten 250 teams to get to this spot.

The Romney Marsh team beat off competition from 16 other teams to win their zone final in Morton Morrell and earn their qualifying place.

The team has been training together for more than five years week in, week out, whatever the weather!

They have been trained over the years by Julie Prodger and her army of parents who have travelled all over the country to give the team the best chance and experience to prepare them.

The team consists of six members who have the most amazing friendship and through this their team spirit has won them the golden ticket to HOYS 2014.

The Horse of the Year Show was founded to be a culmination of the British equestrian events year.
