The equestrian team of SelaQui International School, among the best CBSE boarding schools in India, is a paragon when it comes to success in horse-riding, which every school in the Doon valley and the country at large tries to emulate.
Our school riders galloped their way to emerge as champions in the First Inter-School Equestrian Meet 2018 that was held in Shri Ram Centennial School, Dehradun on 13th and 14th of May. Six boys and three girls of SelaQui participated in the competition. Eight schools from in and around Dehradun sent their riders to compete in this prestigious event. It was a memorable competition for the riders as well as the audience. It is safe to say, this competition was a total knockout!
Yashvardhan Singh and Eeshan Gupta won 3 golds and one silver each in Dressage, Hack, and Relay. Balharshpreet Singh, Yuvika Jain, Raina Bhatia, Shreshtha Neogi, Sumaer Singh, Aviral Gupta and Priyansh Bajaj also won gold and silver in their respective events. Overall, the school won eleven Gold Medals, fourteen Silver and four Bronze Medals in various disciplines of dressage, open hacks group ‘A’ individual, open dressage group ‘I’ and ‘II’ individual, relay team, and equestrian classes. SelaQui was declared the overall winner and the champions proudly brought the Best School Trophy home.
The riders were all gaga over their riding coach Mr. Jagminder Singh. “Without him, this achievement wouldn’t have been possible!” said Aviral Gupta. (…and we can’t agree more!)
