Horsesmart.co.uk

Team GBR endurance riders Rachael Claridge (from Cardinham) and Nicky Sherry (from St Breward) were recognised for their contribution to sport within the South West at the North Cornwall Sports Awards at Wadebridge Leisure Centre on Wednesday 26th November. “It was a great honour to be part of this star studded event and very humbling to be presented with our Ambassador Scheme certificates, both Nicky and I would like to thank Geoff Samuels for his hard work developing the scheme which offers complimentary use of North Cornwall’s leisure facilities to assist its top athletes. As the country prepares for recession I’m sure those of us who want to fulfil our ambitions will work even harder to keep focussed and motivated in achieving personal goals in whichever discipline they are competing in. Sport is certainly one area of everyday life which brings people together in a positive way and I’m sure that the unitary authority will assist Cornwall’s talent in achieving great things in 2012”. The event celebrated the success of the regions sports stars and coach’s. Olympic rowing medallist Annie Vernon who competed in the Beijing offered an inspirational insight into being at the top of her game and the trails and tribulations of success. Both Rachael and Nicky have been involved in the sport of endurance ‘long distance’ riding for many decades and with many 160km FEI qualifications under their belts they are both on track for representing their home county as well as Great Britain in the 2009 European Championships in Italy and the Kentucky World Equestrian Games in 2010. Squad preparation commences on Sunday 7th December for the pair and their home-bred horses Blue Chip Prince Meliodas and Shimmering Blue Jasmin at team vet Hugh Salmon’s Wolfgar practice at Cheriton Bishop near Tedburn St Mary.
