Students Run Successful Show Jumping Event and Raise Money For Charity

Wed, 18/07/2001 - 01:00

Over Easter a group of equestrian students from East Durham College’s Houghall Campus organised and ran a highly successful show jumping event.

The group of 15 students, studying on the Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Equine Management at the Durham-based college, worked together to organise this year’s Houghall Easter Show Jumping competition.

The competition included a clear round course followed by the classes ranging from 55cm to 95cm - and a record number of competitors took part this year.

Chloe Walker, Head of Equine Studies, said: “Loads of riders and horses took part in a very enjoyable event, congratulations to all those who took part in the jumping and a big thank you to all the competitors and spectators.

“Of course a special thank you and well done goes out to all the students who really made the day a great success.”

Another focus of the event was to help raise money for charity. The team helped raise an impressive £490 which will benefit three very worthy charities; Cancer Research UK, the RSPCA and Ronald McDonald House Charities.
