Congratulations to all our pupils, parents and staff who
took part in the Midmar Mile.
Congratulations to Rachel Kerdachi who competed in the
FEI Children's International Classic Gold Tour. Rachel was thereafter
selected to take part in the Final of this series which took place in Belgium
this month. There were a total of 28 competitors from 14 countries.
The event took place at Sentower Park, Oppglabbeek (Belgium).
Rachel has been competing on ponies but in this final international, riders are expected to ride horses and what makes it more challenging is that it is an unknown horse. The host nation athletes bring two horses with a draw determining which of their two horses they will ride and which one will be in the draw for the international riders.
Rachel was privileged to draw an awesome chestnut called Talounabab K Z which was loaned by Belgium rider Thomas Thometschek. The international riders are given a very short time to get know their horse but Rachel coped extremely well. She placed 11th in the first qualifier, 18th in the second qualifier which meant she had enough points to participate in the final.
Rachel placed 11th overall in the final, which left South Africa in 6th
position. Rachel would like to thank Chad Cunningham who coached and
assited her in Belgium. This is an outstanding achievement and we are
exceptionally proud of Rachel.
