George through to Championships

29 Jun 2017

Witham Hall equestrian team member George Verguson-Rowley has qualified for the Pony Club Show Jumping Championships to be held at Cholmondeley Castle in late August 2017.

He qualified via one of the 19 area competitions held all over the United Kingdom. George represented the Burghley Pony Club in the Novice 90cm Class of over 90 competitors from 24 different Pony Clubs. With only 2 team and 4 individual places available there was little margin for error! Unfortunately, team members did not have luck on their side so they were out of the running for a team qualification. However, George had gone clear in two rounds and had to jump another clear round to claim one of the 4 spaces available. Last to jump, he went into the ring with great determination and qualified with a very stylish clear round! Well done George.
