First awarded in 1979 the Wilkinson Sword Trophy was initially contested by novice men and women.There have been changes to the rules over the years, as repeat wins for Mark Richards in 1982 and 1983, and the female winners prior to 2000 illustrate.

In 2000 a sister trophy “The Princess Royal” was introduced for novice women riders, and the Wilkinson Sword has since been contested by novice men.Most recently both the Wilkinson Sword and Princess Royal have been championships open to riders who at the start of the Season were under 21 and had yet to ride a winner under the rules of any recognised Racing Authority.
