Riders: School rises to horse team challenge
SIR James Smith's Community School at Camelford entered two equestrian teams into the school showjumping competition at Resparveth, Grampound Road.
They were able to field two full teams due to one of the horse-riding students, Neisha Cole, staying all day with a pony in each competition.
The first team jumping were SJS Reds riding in the novice class. The team members were Sammi Rowe on Sandy, Neisha Cole on Cally, Poppy Stiles on Tilly and Michael Greenaway on Woodrow Romsey.
Overall, the team came a creditable fifth out of ten teams and a great second in the Tack and Turnout. In the Dengie individual competition, held over the lunchtime, Ella Slade took top spot with Neisha Cole fifth.

The school's second team to jump were SJS Blacks riding in the open class, the team members comprising Olivia Murray on Basil, Ella Slade on Buster, Caitlin May on Snowflake and Neisha Cole on Butchers Boy. Overall, in terrible weather conditions, the team was placed eighth out of eleven competing teams but came fifth in Tack and Turnout.
Afterwards the showjumpers said: "Considering this was the first time out as a school for several years both teams did pretty well."
There is due to be another schools' team showjumping contest in May, which is normally held outdoors and in better weather.
