An Independent Day and Boarding School for Boys and Girls aged 3 to 18 years

Equestrian team through to finals

Saturday saw the College equestrian team ride to success at the team qualifiers for dressage and showjumping at Epworth near Doncaster.  This has led to them once again qualifying for the national championships later in the term! The day started with consistent tests from all the members. Hannah Marley on Booty Boots won the Prelim section, with Amelia Foster on DH Blurred Lines in second. Hannah on her other ride, Cave Star, finished 4th in the same section with, new recruit Tilly Marley finishing 5th and Tilly Fenton with her new horse finishing close behind in 6th. Hannah then went on to also win her Novice section, qualifying individually for the championships.

A quick change of discipline saw the girls gaining further success in the showjumping. Tilly Marley on Storm finished 2nd in her 70cm class and qualified for the Regional Finals. She also posted another double clear to finished 5th in the 80cm class. Tilly Fenton on Limmerick's Ruby took 4th place in this class as well as a 3rd in the 90cm and another 4th in the 1m class. Amelia Foster also competed in the 90cm finishing 6th. Hannah on Boots was 2nd in the 90cm and finished one better in the 1m class, as the overall winner. A great day for the school.
