One of our S2 students Chelsea has written a report about her exciting equestrian hobby. Chelsea has three ponies all registered with the Edinburgh Pony Club and takes part in showjumping events and competitions representing the school at national level. Chelsea recently qualified for the Pony Club National Dengie Finals to be held at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre, Buckinghamshire on 2nd April which is a fantastic result and we wish her good luck!
“I am a 14yr old amateur equestrian. I currently have 3 horses which I regularly compete. One of my horses is called Zak, a 15.3hh showjumper. Another is Indie, a 14.2hh showjumper but is mainly used for Pony Club activites, and finally I have Joey, he is a 13hh show pony who is registered with the British Show Pony Society.
Zak is currently registered BSJA – The British Show Jumping Association and is a part of NSEA – The National Schools’ Equestrian Association with the school. As the school is joined with the NSEA I get to represent WHEC in showjumping competitions.
On the 6th February we attended a show at Blue Ridge Equestrian Centre representing WHEC. This was where we were placed 1st in a class of 52 people!”
