Well done Rachel

Well done to one of our Year 9 students, Rachel Cuff and her pony, Nemo.  They competed in a junior team representing Solent Riding Club in the British Riding Club Area 17 Winter Showjumping Area Qualifiers.

Each team member and their pony jumped two rounds of show jumps and were timed in each round. The best teams from these qualifiers, from all the areas, compete at national level in a competition in the Midlands, during the summer.

This brilliant team worked so hard and supported each other amazingly well. With horses, there are always some unexpected moments, the team were so mature and grounded, dealing with the nerves, pressure and unpredictability of horses’ behaviour.

They achieved an incredible second place! Congratulations Rachel and Nemo, and the rest of the team!
