Richard Noyce (1925-1988), a keen member of the Royal Artillery Hunt was a farm manager at Penton Mewsey not too far from Larkhill. He was one of the star riders on the course in the early years on horses such as Silent Night II and Onslow Boy. He also assisted with the preparation and maintenance of the course until killed in a road traffic accident aged 62.
A public subscription in his memory allowed the purchase of the bronze trophy of a horse and jockey in his colours, which was first awarded in 1990.
