Writtle University College’s Megan Curtis and her horse Stanley George will be competing in the My Quest British Dressage Nationals on October 25.

My Quest is an initiative for riders at Intro, Prelim or Novice level. My Quest has a regional leader board, with the top riders being taken to a Regional Final and then the National Championships.

BSc (Hons) Equine Performance and Business Management student Megan is part of Writtle’s Performance Team, coached by FE Equine Lecturer, Laura Johnston. Currently in its second year, the squad has a history of success at My Quest, after reaching Regionals Finals in 2018.

In 2019, they went a step further. On September 28, Megan and Stanley George gained a podium position of third in the Prelim class, before being named Novice Regional Champions. They will take part in the Kent & Masters My Quest National Championships 2019 at Bury Farm, Buckinghamshire on 25 - 27 October.

Laura Johnston said: “We’re very proud of Megan. She’s a dedicated student who came to Writtle for further education and progressed to a degree course. She works hard in her studies and during her training with Stanley George. We wish them both the best of luck at the Nationals.”
