A team of young riders from West Buckland School have come first in the 60cm class in the North Devon Show Jumping League Championships, which concluded last weekend. The team have accumulated their points in competitions over the past few months and have worked incredibly hard to get themselves and their ponies in top form.
The team consisted of Isobel Skinner in Year 11, Katie Miles and Louise Cotton, in Year 10, Daisy Cotton and Charlie Pocock, in Year 8 and Harry Pocock in Year 7. In addition to the outstanding team performance, there was individual success with Katie achieving 2nd place, Harry 6th and Daisy 8th. This was particular pleasing as there were over 250 competitors taking part from local schools.
Many thanks to Michelle Pocock and Miss Hannah for supporting the team throughout the summer months.
