Recently the SC equestrian team, competed at Epworth in the NSEA arena event, and they achieved some excellent results.

In the 90 cm class Lily Blyth, Tilly Marley, Hannah Marley, Edward Bradley and Tilly Fenton all jumped lovely rounds to take 3rd and 4th in the teams section.  Hannah, on Cave Star, took the top spot in that class.  The Blue team, consisting of Tilly M, Hannah and Lily, all jumped fantastic rounds to take the win in the 100 cm class, with the red team finishing a close 2nd.  Hannah, again on Cave Star won the individual with Tilly Marley only 0.71 behind to take second!  Edward Bradley was 3rd a clean sweep at the top!

The team then ventured to the inaugural YBSG Show Jumping event, co-hosted by Scarborough College and Ampleforth College at Northallerton Equestrian Centre.   The day started with a 2nd place in the 70 cm team section.  Sienna, our youngest member took an incredible 1st place in a very competitive 70 cm class.  In the 80 cm class, our team consisting of Lily Blythe, Sienna Watts, Holly Shepherdson and Hannah Marley, all jumped lovely rounds to finish 3rd.  We had two teams entered in the 90 cm class who all jumped very well.  The red team, including Lily Blythe, Tilly Fenton, Tilly Marley and Hannah Marley was 3rd and the blue team consisting of Edward Bradley, Tilly Marley, Lily and Hannah, finished on a score of 0 and went one better to come 2nd.  In the 100 cm class the blue team (Ed, Hannah and Tilly M) all jumped clear, to take the top spot! The red team (Tilly F, Tilly M, Lily and Hannah) finished close behind in 2nd.  Edward finished an individual 2nd, Hannah on Cave Star, finished 4th and Tilly M finished 5th and 6th. Edward also jumped a lovely round in the 1.10m to finish 2nd.  A busy start to the summer season.  Well done and good luck #TeamSC
