The Four Nations sees teams from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland compete against each other at three separate age levels and also to be declared the overall Four Nations champions! It takes place every two years so the next event will take place in 2023.
The Four Nations in 2021 took place at Cheshire Polo Club in Tarporley on the 24th and 25th of July and was an amazing event, with our brilliant members and their horses showing off their skills! Full results can be found here.
For the Four Nations, each nation has a team consisting of three sections; one of Minis (12 and under), one of Juniors (15 and under) and one of Seniors. Individually each section can win their age category by winning games and earning points. Then the placings in each age category earns the Nations overall points and these points decide who wins the coveted Triple Diamond Trophy for the overall champion Nation!
As well as the main competition there is the Field Shield, which is a new addition for 2023. This is designed to judge the teams on their horse and pony care and the way they work as a team with their coach and manager. On each day they are judged on a range of criteria and awarded an overall mark. The highest scoring team at the end of the event wins the Field Shield!
