For the third year in a row, Scarborough College's equestrian team qualified through to the National Schools' Championships held annually in Buckinghamshire where a number of outstanding individual rides saw them finish a remarkable 4th overall in the 85cm class with every rider scoring magnificent clear rounds. The College was especially pleased that Year 10 pupil Hannah Marley was crowned the 2017 Individual Eventing Champion thanks to her superlative league performances over the course of the year.
The event was topped-off with a superb 8th placing in the 90-95cm Jumping With Style category, in which new Year 7 pupil Lily Blythe achieved one of the very best individual scores which bodes very well for the future of riding at the College. The headmaster, Charles Ellison, commented: "We are delighted by the overall performance of the team and once again their talent has marked out Scarborough College as a genuine school of excellence for riding. They have the perfect mind-set and nerve to perform when it matters most."
