AN EQUESTRIAN ace from an Ayr school is celebrating major success.

Lucy Rennie (15) secured first place last month at Morris Equestrian Centre in the Schools 90cm League Class.

Riding for Wellington School, Lucy and her pony GEC Delight (otherwise known as Del) were the only combination to jump double clear.

Speaking afterwards about her performance, the Ayr youngster said: “Del is fairly straightforward to ride; she loves her jumping and is very fast in a jump off! It was only Del’s second show back after some time off so I opted for a steady clear round and it paid off.”

Lucy’s mum Wendy commented: “I like the ‘Just for Schools’ League because it allows Lucy the opportunity to qualify for the British Showjumping National Championships, which is a very prestigious event.”

The Ayr youngster now aims to qualify both Del and her second horse Parkhill Legacy (owned by Jim Wilmer) for the ‘Just for Schools’ Championships.

The ‘Just for Schools’ League- run by British Showjumping - offers riders the chance to compete Individually or as a Team in classes ranging from 70cm to 1.10m with the chance to qualify for the Championships. To find out more please call 02476 698824 or visit:
