Two talented young sisters from Lauder have had a successful Junior British Showjumping Festival Show at Kingsbarn Equestrian Centre recently.

Nine-year-old Amy Morris just missed out on the red ribbon on the first day with her fantastic mount Brown Sugar III.

She returned on day two more determined and that paid off as she put in some serious turns in the jump-off to secure first place.

She also picked up the trophy for the highest-placed 10-years-and-under rider.

Her sister Megan, 10, is back on form again after 
her forced rest due to suffering a broken leg over the summer.

She was second on Friday with her new 138cm ride, the Dutch-bred Limaut. On Saturday she took fifth spot in the 90cm class, having the fastest time, but just tipping a pole.

Not content with 
this on Sunday she had two ponies into the jump-off in the 90cm championship.

Limaut was drawn 
second and set a cracking time to take the lead. Every rider following chased her time, but each had a pole down,

Megan, on her 128cm Boughtons Fairfield Bertie, was second last to jump and cut every corner to secure top spot, Limaut finishing in second.

The elder sister is now focusing on Brown Sugar III as she is borrowing her 
back from Amy to jump 
down south at Olympia this Christmas.

Megan has also recently picked up the Scottish Branch British Showjumping 
award for most improved 128cm rider at the Scottish Horse of the Year Show.
