Interschools Showjumping Competition
Article Uploaded : 06/12/2019 by Midleton College

Today at the West Cork Equestrian Centre in Timoleague, in an Interschools Showjumping Competition, our Midleton College team of four First Year riders, Alice Roch-Perks, Erica Conroy, Caoimhe Tierney and Paris Tierney finished in sixth position.  Two double clears were needed from three riders to enable us to go forward to the jump off. Our riders duly obliged and Alice Roch-Perks, astride Capuccino, was elected to jump against the clock over the 1 metre fences. In her first ever jump off over the taller fences, she did extremely well and was so unfortunate to have just the one fence down in one of the fastest times of the day.
In the Individual Competition,  Erica Conroy finished Joint First, recording another double clear, following on from her double clear in the Team Competition, astride Starborough. What a fantastic achievement for our young riders in action only for the second time in an Interschools event.  Well done! We are very proud of the four of you. Ride on!! 🏇🏻 (more pics in gallery)
