Leading Rider (Male) Sponsored by Fisher German

The official list of winners for West Midland Area Championships can only be traced back to 1990, prior to that no records exist.
Although the 14 Point-to-Point Administrative Areas (of which the West Midlands is one) were created in 1972, no evidence has been found regarding any potential champions between 1972 and 1990.
During the period 1960 to 1971 no Administrative Areas existed, so the West Midland Area as it was subsequently created has been used as a framework during this period, so this is a purely academic exercise but does provide some recognition to the individuals concerned.
A certain amount of guesswork is involved as it is impossible to ascertain which hunts jockeys received their RQC’s from after a gap of nearly 60 years.
The current Championships are decided on a points basis, but in 1990 the criteria was “Winners ridden by West Midland jockeys at West Midland meetings”. This resulted in the following individuals being identified as Champions in the preceding years.
