There was success at the British Showjumping National Championships for former Pembrokeshire College student Cat Mayes.

The course was set for the 70cm Senior National Club Championships which saw 17 horse and rider combinations try and take the overall Championship title.

Riding Geronimo II, the 26-year-old won in a time of 33.67 seconds.

And her 16 year old bay gelding was on top form despite the five and a half hour journey to compete and Cat, who has been riding Geronimo for eight years but only owned him for the past three, said: “I have more or less produced him myself over the last eight years, when I started riding him at eight I had to go back to basics and start again. This is our first time at the British Championships and we are also competing in the 80cm class next."

And Cat, who also attended Ysgol Dyffryn Taf and studied at Liverpool University, added:”We have been working so hard to get here so I was so determined when we entered the ring.

“When I turned to fence 12 I thought I had knocked it down so I breathed a sigh of relief when it stayed standing. I’m so happy to be here let alone to have won!”
