MANX STUDENT HEADS OFF TO WINDSOR

 

A Lincoln student will be putting her new found managerial skills to the test at the Pony Club Millennium Ride in May.

 

Anita Kinrade, 19, has been selected to the represent the Isle of Man at what promises to be the highlight of the Pony Club year, but the management and marketing student has also been chosen to help keep the younger members in line on the day.

 

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be at Great Windsor Park to look on as at least one hundred specially selected young riders from around Britain to undertake the 10-mile ride and grand parade.

 

Living in halls of residence at the Lincoln campus, Anita is missing the horses she’s had to leave behind on the Isle of Man.

 

“I was so surprised to be chosen, but I’ll be really proud to represent my home island and country in May,” said Anita, who hopes to join the RAF when she graduates. “It was unexpected because I’ve only been riding a few years and I know lots of other people who could’ve been picked.”

 

Back home on the Isle of Man Anita’s family have four horses, five cats and three dogs including her favourite, a thorough-bred horse called Midnight Shadow. In May Anita will ride a borrowed horse from London.

Mum Sue hails from Harrogate and the family have connections to both Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
