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.
