Horse Riding success for Monkton pupil
Friday, 07 September 2018
Tom and his horse Kenny along with their Pony club team mates enjoyed a summer of success at the National Pony club Championships in Intermediate Eventing at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire on 30th Aug. They all had brilliant double clears on the day and went on to win as a team overall (about 40 teams from UK/NI qualified) so are now National Champions. Tom and Kenny were placed individually 5th in their section and Tom won a special commendation for horsemanship at cross country - only one of 5 under 18s to be awarded this on the day. They even had a whole page dedicated to the achievement in last week’s Horse & Hound!
He has also qualified for the National Schools (NSEA) Championships and will represent Monkton on Oct 7th in Oxfordshire.
