CONQUEST STUDENT JASON IS THE PRIDE OF SOMERSET
Jason Inchley, Conquest work place diploma student, was among a select few inspirational people to receive a ‘Pride of Somerset’ youth award on Friday 6th March. The ceremony, which took place at Somerset College for Arts and Technology, recognised young people from across the county who display tremendous generosity, courage, talent and passion. Jason, 18 from Chard, is currently undertaking his level 2 work place diploma in horse care at the Conquest Centre for Disabled Riders.
Jason was awarded this prestigious accolade for his commitment to his work in the face of a range of challenges. Jason has Cerebral Palsy - a condition that affects muscle control and movement. Despite this, Jason undertakes a physical job on the yard and still finds the time for dressage riding! Last year Jason underwent his third heart operation to repair a faulty valve, but was still back at work on the yard as soon as possible.
Jason, pictured here with his award said; “I am very, very proud to win this award. I really feel I have achieved something special, it’s really quite hard to put into words!”
James Holyday, Chair of Trustees at the Conquest Centre for Disabled Riders said; “Jason is one of the many inspirational people who work, volunteer or ride at Conquest. We are proud of everyone that comes to us and is able to benefit and develop themselves by getting involved in the many services on offer. We are delighted for Jason that he has won this award - it’s very deserved indeed!”
From everyone at Conquest, congratulations Jason!
