THERE was excellent support from the Cardigan and north Pembrokeshire area when the Tivyside Hunt returned to Lydstep for their point to point steeplechases, with a good turn out of enthusiasts for a card that produced seven exciting races.
It was very pleasing to see several young jockeys perform exceptionally well, with James Bowen, 16, bringing three winners.
The card concluded with a flat nine furlong pony race featuring two 14 year olds and one 9 year old jockey.
