Just before Christmas, Year 7 pupil Beanie Bradley competed at the London International Horse Show at Olympia on her pony, Doune, in the Mini Major class. This was a relay competition for ‘mini riders’ aged 12 years and under on small ponies, who are paired with professional show jumpers to complete a course of show jumps against the clock, with the fastest pair winning.
Beanie’s partner was an Italian international show jumper, Emanuele Gaudiano. They both rode good rounds under the spotlights of the atmospheric Olympia arena to end up in seventh place. Being part of this world famous Christmas show was a fantastic experience for Beanie and her family.
