Bridgwater College’s Equestrian students named West Somerset champions


Bridgwater College’s Equestrian students recently took part in the Rising Stars Inter Club Team Showjumping event hosted by West Somerset Riding Club, at the Conquest Equestrian Centre in Taunton.

The College’s Cannington Equestrian Centre Riding Club entered two teams into the showjumping events, which were highly challenging and produced an exciting finish in both classes. In Class 1 Cannington Equestrian Centre Stags, Jessica Maidment, Charlotte Lines, Katie Bennett and Chiara Charteris, competed against six other teams and after a tense jump off finished in a well-deserved second place.

In Class 2 Cannington Equestrian Centre Hinds, Molly Lalic, Katie Bennett, Shannon Amesbury and Chiara Charteris, finished ahead of the competition winning first place, to become West Somerset Riding Club Champions!

Cannington Equestrian Centre became a British Riding Club Centre in 2012 and is part of the Area 12 group. The aim of the riding club is to give both students and clients the chance to train and compete regularly either on their own or on one of the College’s horses.
