Down High Equestrian Team Top The League

29th Nov 2019

Down High continues their phenomenal success in the show jumping arena, claiming rosettes in every recent inter-school competition. Last weekend four teams travelled to The Meadows in Lurgan for the penultimate round of the competition. Despite the course presenting a few challenges, the riders from Down High completed two rounds against the clock and finished on an impressive zero score with no faults. When the judges scrutinized the times on the clock, the Down High Eagles with Lara Kelly, Rachael Broome, Tara Emmett and Alex Ogle emerged as overall winners with a combined time of 86.3 seconds. Their stable mates, The Down High Flyers with Jessica Nelson, Alice Emmett, Abby Cummiskey and Zara Sharvin were not far behind! They galloped across the finishing line in 87.0 seconds! All of the teams are eagerly anticipating the final which will be held on 30th November and then the awards ceremony will celebrate equestrian excellence at a dinner in the Belmont Hotel in January.
