RGS Riders Jump to a Top Slot
Riders from the RGS Equestrian squad took part in the National Schools’ Equestrian Winter Show Jumping competition, in Bromyard in December. Young riders from RGS The Grange: Cleo Whitbread, Emily Walsh and Dylan Walsh rode well in the first classes, with Cleo jumping clear.
Noah Whitbread was then joined by Senior School pupil, Sophie Chaplin for the Pairs Jumping competition. In stylish Christmas jumpers, the pair put in a very speedy round to finish in second place. A team combined of Joe Whitbread, Noah and Sophie then jumped in the 65cm Show Jumping class; Sophie finished sixth in the individual competition. Finally, Joe rode in the 70cm Regional Championship class, which he had qualified for earlier in the year. Against some excellent competition, Joe finished third overall, and RGS got a podium finish in the Championship.
