FROM THE PAPER: Equestrian B team make history

By Karan Gadhia – Deputy Sports Editor

The equestrian B team are the first side ever to qualify for a regional tournament since the club was established 20 years ago.

The event, which features a team from Liverpool and two from Durham, takes place this Wednesday at Myerscough Equestrian College.

UCLan finished above Bishop Burton, Leeds and Newcastle in the overall table, gaining the most points during four competitions throughout the year, in both show jumping and dressage.

Maddie Refoy, Leonie Holicki, Katy Whitehead and Jade Cannon who make up the team were victorious in the qualifiers overall, winning one of the events and finishing second in the other three.

The Social Secretary, Nicole Benson said: “We obviously want to do well but we’ve never been to Regionals before so the only aim we have really is to have fun and ride the best we can and see where it takes us!”
