Showjumping for joy
2nd Form pupil Euan Montgomery and 4th Form pupil Dee Edwards represented North Shropshire Pony Club at a showjumping competition held at Rodbaston College, Staffordshire, with competitors coming from other pony clubs across Shropshire and Staffordshire.
Euan competed in two classes and came 2nd individually in the 75-80cm class out of over 30 competitors, with his team placed 5th. He and Dee were in the same team in the 80-85cm class in which 9 teams from various pony clubs competed. The team won that class convincingly with Dee being placed 3rd individually, Euan just a second slower in 4th place, and their third team member took 5th place.
Dee also took part in the 85-90cm and 90-95cm classes and whilst just out of the places individually in those classes she helped her team finish in 3rd and 5th places respectively. This rounded off a busy weekend for Dee who has qualified for the second round of the 80cm Pony Club Dengie Debut Showjumping competition, and in March she will compete against qualifiers from across the West Midlands for a place in the National Final.
