Pecanwood equestrians at their best

Pecanwood College Preparatory School kicked off the 2021 equestrian season with a blazing start. With just five riders, the school racked up a significant number of points in their classes.

Alexandria Leigh, the school captain, had a series of wins with her 5 horses in multiple disciplines including equitation, show jumping and working hunter. Kitso Leballo, Kirsten Clark, Jessica Klitzner and Zoe Webster make up the balance of the team and added to Alexandria’s winning streak with their own top places in a number of events, with Zoe earning the highest equitation score of the day.

The College team was also off to a great start. Alyssa Ducray, the team captain, was elected as the provincial Bojanala captain, which is the second election in a row for the school. She excelled in equitation at the show, winning her class. Meade McKie continues to show her expertise in showing and dressage, winning her classes over the weekend.

At a separate event, the President’s Cup, Jamie Alexander won the 90cm Championship class. This follows on the back of her win in the 110cm championship at the South African Youth Championships in 2020.
