Bo Crump (year 9) & her pony 'Annie' competed on Saturday in the British Show Jumping 'Just for Schools' competition. Bo's pony is very young & has only recently started competing so Bo is taking her training slowly & not jumping too high. They showed fantastic promise for the future though jumping a great round to win their 70cm class.
Well done Bo!
