Equestrian: Bedford Modern trio jumping for joy


THREE Bedford Modern School students returned from the Cedars’ School Inter-Schools Show Jumping Competition and County Challenge Qualifier with two rosettes, one trophy and two Bedfordshire County Champion awards.

Year 12 student Katie Shears qualified as the Bedfordshire County Champion and was placed fifth overall in the Class 6 (one metre) in a superb round on ‘Forest Thunder’ at the Bury Farm Equestrian Centre in Buckinghamshire.

Kelly Attwood, 16, and also in Year 12, won first place, and was awarded Bedfordshire County Champion in the 1.10m show, jumping round on the fabulous ‘Cillions Lux’.

Year 9 student Alyce Trude-Bates was the fifth fastest in her class of 70cm on ‘Doris’.

“The commitment and dedication shown by these girls, not to mention the skill and talent they possess, is amazing,” said Mrs Angela Pollard, Equestrian co-ordinator and founder of Bedford Modern School’s Equestrian Club.
