NORTH Cotswold Pony Club won the 100cm Eventer Challenge Blenheim Palace Horse Trials with an unblemished record of zero penalties.

The youthful quartet of Saskia Connor on Ballintogher Machoman, Amy Hine on Cottagefield Harry, Holly Osborne on The Little Maestro and Poppy Clarke on Dandy maintained the perfect scoreboard against the clock.

North Cotswold emerged with the only perfect card from a field of some 45 clubs to return home with the top prize.
