Mon, 7 Aug 2017

Young horseman Tommy scooped a top honour in a show jumping competition yesterday at Herefordshire Country Fair.

The 11-year-old was the best overall rider for his section in an inter-hunt relay.

Tommy, his eight-year-old sister Megan and Bronwyn rode on behalf of Monmouthshire Hunt at King George V Playing Fields in Hereford.

All three riders are pupils at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools.

Tommy is moving on to Monmouth School next month after graduating from The Grange.

The trio, also members of Monmouthshire Pony Club, finished third in the inter-hunt relay out of 14 teams after being beaten by the eventual winners of the class.

Tommy was fourth in the pony club’s individual 70cm show jumping category, while Tommy and Megan’s team finished fifth in the team event.
