Teenagers at Bedminster Down School and Knowle DGE learning centre in Bristol receive their GCSE results.
For many students just getting in the car to travel to school today would have been a struggle, as thousands nervously went to pick up their GCSE results.
But for one teenager from the South West, the journey was horseplay as she decided to ride to Hanham Woods Academy to collect her envelope.
Ebony Kenington might have chosen an unconventional method of travel but she was all smiles after receiving her results.
(We're assuming she got an A* in horsing around)
It's been a day of celebration, relief and for some disappointment across the west today, as students got their GCSE results.

An impressive 43 A* and 44 A grades have been notched up by six sets of twins who attend the same school.
The siblings are all in the same year group at St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School in Bristol, where results shot up by six per cent.
Dorothy and Florence Hislop, 16, scored 13 A*, six As and one B between them.
Dorothy, who gained seven A*s, two As and one B, said: "We were so nervous, everyone kept saying the grades were slipping, so today was a surprise. I am really happy with my results."
