Jake qualifies for the Royal International Horse Show
During the weekend of 3 - 4 February 2018 Jake Myers, a Year 9 Ivybridge Community College student, competed in the British Show Jumping Small Pony Premier in Keysoe, Bedford, where he qualified for the Royal International Horse Show.
Jake and his pony Eddy had the most amazing ‘fault free’ weekend. He jumped double clear around the warm up class on Saturday and then went on to jump the qualifier. Jake then went all three rounds to finish third and take the second qualifying spot. Jake then jumped again on Saturday to go for the win. Again, he jumped all three rounds and was drawn first in the third round (jump off against the clock). Jake and Eddy put in an amazing clear round with fantastic turns back to massive fences. Later in the draw just one combination managed to beat his time by less than a half a second. Jake therefore finished second. He was very happy with this result, as few pony rider combinations manage to jump triple clear both days let alone coming third and second.
