Sunday 11th saw the second competition of the winter series of the North Devon Schools Show Jumping League; it was a character-building day!
Biting cold northerly wind and driving rain (and hail at times) didn’t make for fantastic riding conditions. SMCC Stars (Bathany Forster, Emily White, George Snell and Rachael Hoskins) came 4th in the 60cm Class. SMCC Hurricane (Josh Flanagan, Alice Milne, Charlotte Snell and Rachel Hoskins) won the 70cm class, with SMCC Storm (Jess Cumings, Lily Cronk, Fraser Boundy and Chloe Sanders) coming 5th. SMCC Storm also picked up 6th place in the 80cm Class. Lily Cronk was individually placed 3rd in the 90cm Class.
Despite harsh conditions, SMCC students rode with style, determination and kindness. Our students are, without fail, excellent sports men and women – they support and challenge each other as well as the competitors from other schools. Well done, SMCC Show Jumpers; we’re very proud of you.
