Maintaining their excellent run of form to take the NEXT Just For Schools individual 1.10m final was 15 year old Emma Woods riding her father’s 148cm JA pony Harradene Jade. Bronze Medalists for the Scottish team at the recent Home Pony International, Emma was last to go in a two person jump off with Queens College student Molly Rucklidge aboard Tullagh Rose and left nothing on the table. In her last year in ponies, Falkirk based Emma was keen to “go out there and just go for it” before she heads to the Pony Club championships next week.
The Just For Schools incentive originated in 2017 and has proved increasingly popular, organised by British Showjumping in conjunction with The Pony Club and British Riding Clubs. It allows schools and colleges across the UK to submit teams of three or four riders and individuals within a specific height category: 70cm-1.10m. Each of these height categories are underpinned by a league table to determine who makes it through to the Championships as well as there being two direct qualifiers.
