British tent peggers had a successful campaign at the international competition in Ghaziabad, India (23-28 March).

The team returned with a silver medal in the team lance competition – despite being a rider short when one horse went lame.

The team was comprised of Jenna Copyley, David Puckey, Jerry Watkins and Gerald Knott.

Jerry is director of Equine Welfare at the HorseWorld charity in Bristol.

His wife, and team manager, Dawn Watkins said: “The international championships in India was a fantastic event.

“The team were amazing at holding their own in the team lance competition when one of our horses went lame before the final round.

“It meant we were short of a rider for the last run, and therefore disadvantage.

“But with determination and excellent hand eye co-ordination they went onto win the silver medal.”
