SMCC Show Jumping & Eventing Team – latest news

South Molton Community College’s Show Jumping Team travelled to Tall Trees Arena in Cornwall on Tuesday 14thFebruary for their first competition.  The girls, Izzy Beard, Maisie Atkinson, Molly Matthews and Grace Sinclair, looked professional and smart in their team colours – provided by Acorn Saddlery.  Izzy and Maisie both jumped brilliantly in the 80cm but had an unfortunate 4 faults each; Grace jumped clear and then had 4 faults in the jump-off and Molly jumped double clear.  The team came 4th in the 80cm.  Their second class, 90cm, was up to height.  Izzy and Maisie jumped bravely and with gusto – picking up 4 faults each.  Grace jumped clear and then got 4 faults in the jump-off; her pony had an unfortunate stumble on a tight turn – she would have had the fastest time of the class!  Molly jumped another double clear – riding elegantly and competently.  The team picked up 4th place again.
