Team Claverhouse Qualify for the British Showjumping National Championships


‘Team Claverhouse’ is made up of 4 riders- Kirsten Macpherson, Alex Barr, Rhiannon Bruce and Teigan Getty.

As a team they have qualified for the British Showjumping National Championships🏆 at Stoneleigh park, 11th August 2019. The team was founded by Kirsten Macpherson, who is also the team captain. They were delighted to qualify for the championship at the Cabin Equestrian Centre, Sunshine tour on 6th July 2019.

Team members have said "We are all so excited to have qualified- especially because we only entered the class to have some fun as a team! We have qualified to represent our area ‘Fife and Angus’ and are the only team from our area heading to the championships.
This is a dream come true and massive achievement for all of us as we have trained every day for many years to reach this level." 

Their riding journey all began at the same place- Claverhouse Equestrian Centre. 12 years on they are all still stabled at Claverhouse with their own horses and are coached by Donna Kerr-Ramsay, who has kindly offered to provide transport for their horses to get to the championship.
