Young Scientist Competition

We want to wish Celine Camon and Emma Phelan the very best of luck with their project in the Young Scientist Exhibition starting January 9th in the RDS. Both Emma and Celine are experienced horse riders and their love of all things equine has extended to this project which investigates the effects of using different “Bits”  on a horse’s  performance. Their enthusiasm and hard work over the last number of months  deserves recognition. We wish the girls and their  teacher, Ms Hopkins who has guided them in their work the best of luck next week.
