Equestrian Varsity: CCCU stole this ride

On Saturday, Equestrian competed for best horse-riding in both dressage and jumping. It was held in Trenley Park, a distance outside Canterbury, with the sun making it a beautiful sunny day.
Riders were nervous and full of energy as the day progressed, especially as competition grew steeper. Competition was fairly well-matched throughout the day, even as the dressage results were announced at midday.
Jumping was a spectacular event, with riders speeding around a twisting course and jumping over various sized obstacles.
Unfortunately, the results were announced at the end of the day, with Kent getting more penalties that CCCU and so conceding the win. Despite that, the team enjoyed a good day together, and invited people to join their teams in the future!
