Congratulations to Year 7 Willow House student, Emily Donlan who won both red and yellow ribbons, 1st and 3rd places respectively, in equestrian events at the ARC Pre-Season Championship in Standish at the end of March.

Emily has her own pony, but has recently started to show a friend’s horse at both in-hand and ridden competitions.  Her hobby is a huge commitment, as she needs to attend to the horses every morning and evening, feeding, watering and cleaning the stables.  Each day is an early start with a show day being even earlier, with 5am being the norm!

Emily works very hard and is very independent, insisting on doing most of the work herself.  Her hard work and commitment have really paid off; her ribbons are proof!

Congratulations on your fantastic achievement!
