Watson's Showjumpers Make Competitive Debuts

Published on 8 May 2017 Categories: Sports,  Extra-Curricular

During the Easter holidays five pupils from Primary 4 to S5 took part in the Tower Farm Easter Fun Show. This was their first experience of competition and all left the event with a buzz of achievement. None of the pupils had ever tackled such a complicated course, and to add to the difficulty they were performing in front of an audience. 

All of the pupils received a rosette for placing in at least one of the two classes which made for a superb debut in competitive showjumping. Rebecca Allan (S2) did exceptionally well, winning both classes and achieving a clear round in the warm up event. Sophie Stuart (S5) also rode a clear round and came second and third. Our other riders were Melissa McGladery (P4), Sophie Holmes and Beatrix Raitt (both P6). They too performed very well, each achieving a placing.
