The first Devon and Cornwall point to point pony races of the season take place on Sunday, Feb 3 at the Mid Devon point to point at Black Forest Lodge.

There are several new partnerships making their debut. Tyler Heard takes up the reigns on Bejowans Bouquet, Tamby Welch makes his debut on Bronze Lawrance, and Hamish Clarke rides his new pony Talponciau Perfect Print.
