Emily rides to victory for SJD


Congratulations to Sir John Deane’s student Emily Beckett who recently became the first rider to represent the College in the National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA).

Emily, a former Congleton High School student, enjoyed huge success at the weekend being placed 3rd and 1st as an individual in the 80cm and 90cm show jumping class, at an NSEA competition at Beaverhill Equestrian Centre, in Leek.

She has also competed for the College at the Southview Equestrian Centre, in Winsford, and Eland Lodge, in Derbyshire.  

Emily is now appealing for more riders to get involved to create a team. Students can compete across all disciplines including dressage, show jumping and eventing.

If you are interested in joining Emily in a College equestrian team, please contact Progress Mentor, Tom Shubrook.
