BEAMINSTER’s Anouska Loveridge secured first place at the Just for Schools 90cm League Class at the Kings Sedgemoor Equestrian Centre.

Speaking afterwards about her performance Anouska said: “Arrow Head Quiver is awesome. I feel he will jump anything I put him at, he never says no and I really trust him.

"I had to ride it to win it and there was a turn fence seven to eight which I knew I had to do, Arrow Head Quiver was amazing and flew it.

“I love Just for Schools because I love the classes and the team spirit and competing with my friends.”

Anouska’s mum Jemma added: “I love that ‘Just for Schools’ can be for teams as well as individuals.”
