Down High Equestrian Team Riding High Once More

7th Feb 2020

Members of the Down High Equestrian team secured another breath-taking triumph in the show jumping arena. Throughout the season, several teams competed in the inter-school league at The Meadows and the Down High Flyers ( Jessica Nelson, Abby Cummiskey, Alice Emmett and Zara Sharvin ) emerged on the top of the podium. The chef d’Equipe, Ruth Adams said ‘It was amazing. The competition was intense, demanding commitment and good horsemanship. The pupils are all a credit to the school. We are also grateful to the parents for their continued support and to the staff at The Meadows for organising such a great competition.’ Despite the fact that all of the team members are accomplished riders, this inter-school league is increasingly competitive. The enthusiasm is tangible and all of the competitors deserve to be congratulated. The teams are now eagerly looking forward to the inter-school competition at Balmoral Show when the teams will have an opportunity to contest the trophy sponsored by Bluegrass Horse Feeds.
