The Cotley Hunt won the Inter Hunt relay competition at the Bath and West show on Wednesday (June 1).

The competition saw three team members compete in the main arena over a course of six jumps, a combination of show jumps and cross country fences, with many tight turns and eager kicking.

The team members were Holly Wells, Pippa Wyatt and Olivia Benger riding their horses which they hunt regularly throughout the winter months.

In the first round they beat the Avon Vale, and then they went on to win the semi final against the Devon and Somerset before their success in the final against the reigning champions and near neighbours, the Seavington Hunt, who were the reigning champions.

Axe Vale were the champions on the other day of competition
