28 November; the week at Read

Equestrian Champion!

Continuing with our series on talented Read pupils who are unsung heroes in the field of sport and leisure, let us introduce you to young Emily Crossley, in Year 7.

An impressive list indeed, made more so by the actual standard she is competing at. She has three horses which she competes with: Marius (18), Meg (17) and Bertie (6). This year she has competed both locally and nationally in showing with Marius gaining many rosettes, trophies and awards, some of which you can see her pictured with.
