Based at South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College in Melton, the team consists of dedicated, enthusiastic and talented students. It is affiliated to the National Schools Equestrian Association and competes in interschool competitions.
Equestrian team leader Stacey Lalic said: “South Hunsley School takes pride in its sporting achievements but only a small amount of the school’s budget is allocated to extracurricular activities so the equestrian team has to be self sufficient. We’re extremely grateful to Redrow for their support, which has paid for riding jackets for the team. They really look the part and have been riding high wearing them for competitions.”
The team includes students who have their own horses and those who are interested in training and representing South Hunsley School in competitions. There is also a club for students who are interested in equestrian activities but don’t have their own horses. The club gives them access to riding and horse management training with horses provided.
John Grime, managing director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire), commented: “At Redrow we’re keen to support sport at grass roots level. When we heard that the team were looking for sponsors for their kits we were happy to help. The girls look great in their kits and we wish them every success.”
