The Inter Africa Cup 2014 was held at Kyalami Equestrian Park over the Easter weekend. Ryan Watkinson a Gr 11 student at Fish Hoek High School took part. His team comprised of 4 young riders aged 15-17.

These riders competed in the equitation event which is “the highest expression of horse training”, where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.

These were the results :

SA Adults – 1st

SA Young Riders – 2nd (Ryan’s team)

Namibia Adults – 3rd

I am attaching a pic of Ryan on his borrowed horse, sporting the SA flag!

The Young Riders did exceptionally well, there was only a 5 point lead by the Adults.
