Jack, a member of Brecon and Talybont Pony Club, was selected to represent our Wales & Borders team at the Royal Windsor Horse Show over the weekend of the 17th/18th May.
There were 8 junior teams competing (24 children in total selected from around the UK) from Scotland, Ireland, Wales and different regions within England. In the team event, the Wales & Borders team, made up of Jack, Abigail Worrell and Ben Read, came a superb 2nd place behind Scotland.
In the individual competition however, Jack came an outstanding 1st place in the Tetrathlon competition. He had consistently high results through all four disciplines (shooting, swimming, cross country running and riding), registering a Personal Best in both the swim and the run, winning the running phase (1500 metres) in 4 mins 50 seconds.
Jack performed very well in the shooting discipline too, scoring a near perfect 960 points. Jack has benefited from the expert tuition of Squadron Leader Albie Fox, the RAF’s Community Relations Officer in Wales, who hones Jack’s shooting skills in the Christ College CCF indoor shooting range.
Jack’s recent achievements include being awarded Best Junior Tetrathlete in the Pony Club’s Area 10, he won a tetrathlon in West Wales at Pembrey recently, and came 4th in Pony Club UK Triathlon finals.
Jack also has a busy half-term of competition too, with an Inter-Area tetrathlon, and the UK Junior Regional championships later this week!
