Four officers from South Yorkshire Police competed at the recent Royal Windsor Horse Show at Windsor Castle.
The event also hosted the Royal Diamond Jubilee Pageant marking The Queen’s Jubilee.
Pc Paul Brown, Pc Julie Bradshaw and Pc Tracey Brown from the Force’s mounted department and Detective Constable Debbie Renwick represented the Force earlier this month in various events.
The officers competed on their own horses in their spare time against members of Her Majesty the Queen’s military, members of other police saddle clubs and the best civilian riders in the traditional disciplines of tentpegging, skill at arms and show jumping.
Pc Paul Brown came second in the individual tentpegging event and secured seventh place in skill at arms using sword, lance and revolver.
Pc Julie Bradshaw, Pc Tracey Brown and Dc Debbie Renwick competed against 41 other police and military teams in the show jumping event.
The trio qualified in the top 12 teams and went forward into a ‘jump off’ event in front of Her Majesty the Queen.
Pc Julie Bradshaw jumped a clear round and the team secured an eighth place finish.
The four officers were presented with their Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals prior to event by Deputy Chief Constable Bob Dyson, which the team wore with pride when competing.
Pc Paul Brown said: “Despite the pressure of the competition the team put extra effort into the turnout of the horses and the kit before parading.
"We were all immensely proud to represent the Force, especially when we all walked past the royal box and saluted The Queen as our names were read out under the South Yorkshire Police announcement.”
