A Day in the Life of a Showjumper
Year 13 student Izzi Ryder has balanced her academic studies with competing at a high level in showjumping across the UK and in Europe. She has represented her country on several occasions and has previously qualified for the Horse of the Year Show. Last August, at the age of 17, Izzi and her horse 'In The Mood VHK' came 3rd in the U21 National Finals.
Whilst A level examinations have been cancelled nationally St Gabriel's have been running a programme for Year 13 students to help them prepare for the next stage of their education. The St Gabriel's Diploma has involved pupils following a range of projects to further spark their interest and curiosity for learning.
Izzi has many significant achievements in showjumping and has incorporated the knowledge and understanding that she has gained from A level biology and PE to produce this video.
Izzi has combined her sports and science disciplines to produce an informative and entertaining video about the life of a showjumper called Adventures with Izzi which we hope will inspire some of the other equestrians in the school.
