Dressage honour for Gemma

An 11-year-old Queen’s School pupil has been selected for the Welsh Dressage Team for the second consecutive year

Gemma Owen, from Northop, Flintshire, who moves up to the Senior School in September, competed for Wales in an inter-regional competition for under 25-year-olds recently. She came fourth individually in her section against competitors from all other UK regions.

Gemma was also awarded the BYRDS (U25) Wales Rider of the Year for her successes at the Inter-Regionals and Home International during 2013/14 where she won the Novice Championship for U16s.

Gemma’s next target will be attending Viewing Day in September where she will ride in front of the Great Britain selectors for the International U16 squad.

Ian Abell, who organises the school’s Equestrian teams, said: “Gemma is an extremely talented equestrian and it is no surprise to us that she is already competing at a national level with such great success. We wish her luck with the Team GB selections.”
