Whitland’s Molly Cressey-Rodgers aged fourteen secured first place last month at Moor Farm in the Schools 70cm League Class
Molly Cressey-Rodgers, aged 14 from Dyfed secured first place last month at Moor Farm in the Schools 70cm League Class. Riding for Ysgol Bro Myrddin School, Molly and her pony Rochevalley Star Prize, otherwise known as Marmite, rode a speedy double clear to take the top spot.
Speaking afterwards about her performance Molly said; “Marmite is quite sensitive and can be very naughty, nonetheless, he is very talented and we know each other well now. His jumping is really improving; we were able to pull off some nice tight turns in order to win which I was really pleased about.”
Molly’s mum Ruth commented; “Just for School’s is a great opportunity for the children to compete with their friends and share their love of showjumping. Hopefully, the team will qualify for the British Showjumping National Championships next year - we are all looking forward to a fun road trip if they do.”
Molly and her teammates were crowned the Team Schools 90cm National Champions back in 2016, when Molly was riding Freddie, who is now retired. Now, Molly aims to qualify Marmite individually and as a team for the British Showjumping National Championships, in the Schools 70cm and 80cm leagues.
The ‘Just for Schools’ League run by British Showjumping offers riders the chance to compete Individually or as a Team in classes ranging from 70cm to 1.10m with the chance to qualify for the Championships.
