Equestrian News

The 10th of September saw the first leg of the TRI Equestrian Interschools league being held in Wexford Equestrian. BVS were represented with two teams filled with students from first to sixth year. 

The grey team of Patrick Murphy (1st Year), Aine Kavanagh (1st year), Declan Deegan (6th year) and Hannah Murphy (2nd year) showed great horsemanship and got through to the jump off to finish just outside of the placing in what was a very competitive jump off. 
BVS wine team of Claire Kavanagh (2nd year), Catherine Kavanagh (TY), Aoife Murphy (3rd year) and James Kavanagh (6th year) also got through to the jump off. Aoife Murphy and Catherine Kavanagh took up the challenge for this round. They showed their skill and composure in being able to hold off the strong competition from the opposition to land the spoils with a time of 70.92. Good Councel New Ross were runners up in a time of 71.66 and Newbridge College finished in 3rd 
The Open Individual Derby saw a large entry take part. Declan Deegan was early to go in the class and recorded a time of 53 seconds that proved to be unbeatable. Michael Cullen from St Peter's College was runner up in a time of 55seconds and Rebeka Rochowich from Ramsgrange College placed 3rd with a time of 57 seconds. 
Aoife Murphy and James Kavanagh took on the 1.10 which was the final competition of the day and finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. 
The students enjoyed their day which was very well organised by Orla Roche and Pat Peare and were delighted to be presented with lots of wonderful prizes. 
The next outing for our equestrian students will be in Boswell, Co. Wicklow on the 16th of September.
