Lauder siblings
 jump to success

Two young sisters from the Borders did extremely well at the Scottish Home Pony International held at Morris Equestrian earlier in the month.

Amy Morris,9, from Lauder competed through out on her pony Brown Sugar III and came home with numerous first rosettes from the 11 and under classes. In the team event, Amy and sister Megan, 10, and colleagues came fourth overall in the 11-and-under competition.

Megan was placed every day on her novice 128cm pony Bookham Lodge Naomi Campbell, competing against more than 60 starters.

Megan has just recovered from a broken leg which saw her miss jumping at the Royal Highland Show this year, but she was rewarded with being selected as reserve for the Scottish 128cm team with her pony Boughtons Fairfield Bertie.

The team had great rounds and finished in second place to win the silver medal.

The next big outing for this pair is down to Weston Lawns, where Amy is jumping in the Scottish academy teams and Megan is competing individually.

Both girls are members of the Edinburgh and Borders Junior Academy.
