STAGS Equestrian Team Achieve Impressive Results at Regional Championships
On Saturday 9th September STAGs students Olivia Taylor (8J) and Ruth Quillin-Creamer (10A) represented Pony Club Area 12 at the Regional Championships at Keysoe Equestrian Centre. Together they made up one half of the South Herts and West Middlesex Pony Club dressage team. Ruth gives us her account of the day:
To even qualify for these regional championships STAGS team had to beat 24 other teams just from Area 12! On the day of the event despite some sharp rain showers (which did not impress the ponies!) all the team members performed well and STAGS team was placed an impressive 5th out of 40 teams across 4 Area! Oliva progressed to the ride off and achieved an amazing 7th place as an individual out of 147 competitors. We both really enjoyed the day and would like to thank the coach, international dressage rider Joanna Henbrey for her continued support and the other half of our team Aidan Morris and Sofia DeBrito. We look forward to representing STAGS again in the very near future.
Congratulations ladies, STAGS community is very proud of your achievements. We wish you every success throughout the coming season.
