Form 3 pupil Jack Stephens, aged 14, from Llangynidr, has been selected to be one of a team of three representing Wales & Borders Pony Club at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May, and will compete as an individual and as part of the Wales & Borders team.
Every year the Royal Windsor Horse Show invites Pony Clubs to do a display or compete in a competition, and one junior tetrathlete is selected from each area to make up a regional team of three.
Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor, said: “Twenty four children have been selected to attend from around the UK and Ireland, so in Pony Club terms this is quite an honour for Jack. His selection is a result of being awarded best Junior Tetrathlete in Area 10 in 2013 and his continued successes so far this year.”
The competition is on the weekend of the 17th and 18th May. On the Saturday, Jack will compete in the Tetrathlon where he will shoot, swim and run, and on the Sunday he’ll be in a Show Jumping competition in one of the arenas.
The event will conclude with a parade, which will see Jack riding with his Wales & Borders team in the main arena, flying the Welsh flag, hopefully in front of HM the Queen!
Well done and good luck to Jack!
