A couple of the team were out this weekend, braving the storms to compete. Ellie M (yr 9) and her pony ‘Cassie’ jumped a great round over a tricky Eventer Challenge course, which caught lots out, to be placed 15th. Meanwhile, Martha R (yr 10) and her pony ‘Rupert’ tackled some Arena Eventing and came a fantastic 3rd after having just the joker fence down and being just seconds off the optimum time.

Fabulous to see you both out representing the college – well done girls

Day 4- Austria ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡นย 

Totally different conditions for the students! A severe temperature drop with severe wind followed by a torrential snow storm! These conditions did not deter anybody and all of the students excelled with their skiing! The evening entertainment took us to Innsbruck bowling alley for a fun filled evening of bowing and different arcade games.
All of the group are looking forward to skiing on the fresh snow during Day 5!
