Taking hold of the reins for the College, Cadet Lance Corporal (Cdt LCpl) Charlie Pincus participated in an introduction to military equitation, a form of military training for riders and horses.
Riders were assessed against military standards for adapting to an unfamiliar horse, riding competency and dealing with unforeseen issues. LCpl Pincus, is part of the College’s very successful Equestrian Team and recently won a silver medal at the National Schools Equestrian Association Championships. This event was a novel experience for him and he acquitted himself well, winning a rosette for his efforts.
Eastbourne College CCF Contingent Commander Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Lamb MBE DL, who nominated LCpl Pincus forward for the event, highlighted,
‘Just to be selected to take part is an achievement in itself; this is the second year the College has been selected, which is a first for our school. All thanks to Charlie and his parents for their continued dedication to equestrian pursuits.’
