Dressage - Rebecca"This is Vinnie. I competed on Vinnie in a dressage competition and we won! He can be quite naughty sometimes but he was perfect on the day. It was a walk and trot dressage at Valley Farm Equestrian Centre and for my next one I’m going to be doing the walk, trot and canter competition!"

Adam - RugbyAdam, in Year 8, and the Banbury Rugby Club Under 13 team went to Somerset over the May bank holiday to compete in the 2017 Leicester Tigers Challenge.

The lads put in a fantastic performance against very strong teams from England and Wales and, after two days of hard fought competition, they beat teams from High Wycombe, Barnet and Watford to finish the tournament as Trophy winners.  This ended a great year's rugby for the team - a great time was had by all and the boys are now having a well-earned rest before next season.
