Ex Skegness pupil, Evie Toombes, has been selected to represent Team GB Para Showjumping at the Pferd International next month.

Evie attended The Richmond School from the age of four to eleven and Skegness Grammar School.

Joanne Hazard from Richmond School said:

We are so proud to announce the wonderful news of our ex pupil Evie Toombes. She has been selected to represent Team GB Para showjumping next month at Pferd International.

Evie was classified as a Para rider in 2014 after being noticed by course builder, Amanda Cole.

It means Evie can wear caps and banding to stirrups to stop her feet getting wedged. Plus she can now compete in Para Showjumping and Dressage competitions.

Evie has multiple health problems which stem from a form of spina bifida. She has just had the all clear from her consultants and is able to go.

Evie is also a hidden disability ambassador and gives talks in schools to children to spread the word and understanding about hidden disability’s. Her motto is find a way not an excuse.

We wish Evie the best of luck in the forthcoming event and you are a true inspiration!
