George and Shaney at Epworth

26 Jan 2017

George Verguson-Rowley represented the School in the NSEA Eventer Challenge at Epworth on 22nd January.   

In the 90cm – 95cm Eventers Challenge, made up of 9 show jumps and 12 cross country jumps, he rode a cracking round, but unfortunately just had fence 2 down picking up 4 faults, but was dead on the option time.

With nobody going clear, his frustration was obvious; if he had gone clear would have won, but had to be content with a minor placing on time.

Manfully, and for the first time, George then took up the 100cm to 105cm Eventers Challenge, being the youngest competitor. He rode superbly, and just had one down, and was placed 7th. A great first attempt.

This was a lovely venue and a really well organised and friendly event. Well done George!
