Jessica qualifies for Pony Club championships

A level 3 equine student from the College of West Anglia Cambridge Campus has qualified for the Pony Club Championships, this summer.

The Pony Club Dengie Winter League Dressage Area 8 Competition was held at CWA Cambridge in Milton on Sunday 12 March 2017.

Jessica Bowes and her horse, Winnetou Apache, placed second in a large class of 25 competitors with a fantastic score of 71.8%.

Miss Bowes, 16, competed alongside Victoria Oram, 17, also a Level 3 Equine student at CWA Cambridge. The pair were both winners at the inter-collegiate competition held at Easton College, in December 2016.

Both girls competed in the Pony Club Novice class on their own horses. Victoria Oram rode a lovely test, scoring a respectable 68% on her horse, Future’s Pride.

Jessica’s score has qualified her for the Pony Club Championship, which takes place from Friday 18 – Tuesday 22 August, at Cholmondeley Castle, in Cheshire.

Jade Rouchy, Equine Director at CWA, said: “We’re really proud of both girls who are excellent ambassadors for both the college and the Pony Club. Everyone at the College of West Anglia wishes Jessica the very best of luck in the Pony Club Championships.”
