Clenchwarton’s Ronnie Robinson has won a national Para Club Equestrian grade.

The crowd were treated to an impressive display of teamwork by all horse and rider combinations competing in the Para Club Championships, which took place centre stage in Championship Arena 2 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.

The Championships, kindly sponsored by, consisted of five titles which were awarded to the various grades. The grading system ranges from Grade I, II, III, IV with grades representative of the competitor’s level of disability.

The 60cm National Para Club Equestrian Grade IV was won by Robinson riding Ardcarrig Snowball.

Ronnie is 11 years old and travelled all the way from Norfolk for the show but he made the trip well worthwhile by taking the win, despite being severely visually impaired.

Snowball is 22 years old and has been in the family for 12 years.

Ronnie’s dream is to compete in the Paralympics so he can inspire others to follow their dreams and not let anything get in their way.
