SOUTH of Scotland Select vaulters have just returned from a highly successful trip to Aachen, Germany.

The team of Stacey Macpherson, Lucy Younger, Shannon Purves, Charlie Lochhead, Sophie Aitchison and Izzy Kyle had a brilliant pre-run before their appearance at the European Championships in August and finished in an amazing third place.

All the vaulters put on their best performances to date on board their horse, Aspen Delikat, lunged by Rebecca Hewit.

Although Aachen is a senior competition, the South Select fielded a junior team, so they were even more proud.

They now have two weeks’ intensive training before heading off to Slovakia and Borders equestrian enthusiasts have a chance to see them in action at an open night on Wednesday, July 18, at 6.30pm.

Entrance is £5 for adults and £2 for under-12s.

There will also be tea and cakes, and a raffle.

The address is Newlands, Reston, Eyemouth, Berwickshire TD14 5LN.
