More exciting news from the Dean Close Equestrian team -
Jaz Head has been selected for the Show Jumping team for Area 41 (Gloucestershire) by the BSJA (British Showjumping Association) this term which is high recognition in itself. She took part in the Regional Competition recently and her team won, thereby qualifying for the National Finals in September. Jaz rode brilliantly on her new horse Rakker and had two Clear Rounds to help the team to victory.
In addition, the Dean Close Team won the NATIONAL SCHOOLS' TWO-DAY EVENT which was held at Offchurch Bury, near Leamington Spa at the end of May.
