Keira Shafiq, 10, from Nuneaton, Briony Martin, 11, from Bonley, Duncan Sloan, 14, from Dumfries and Charlotte Gayle, 16, from Newton Abbott all won the individual show jumping title at the Land Rover Pony Club Regional Championships in August. As part of their prize, title sponsors Land Rover arranged for them to have a show jumping lesson with the London 2012 Olympic Gold medalist at his training base.
After the lesson, Briony Martin, who is a member of the Crawley & Horsham Pony Club said:
“I have had the most fantastic afternoon at Ben Maher’s yard. Since a young child I have watched Ben compete at Hickstead and Olympia, so to actually meet him and have a lesson with him, is just an amazing experience and one that I will always treasure.”
