On Saturday 20 January, the Equestrian team had their first outing of 2024 at the county qualifiers hosted at Bury Farm Equestrian Centre.
The 70cm team of Lexi D, Esme S and Lily F rode wonderfully to finish as the 5th place team in a huge class. The same team went on to compete in the 80cm. Lexi and Lily had fabulous clear rounds with Lily finishing in the top 15 in a class of 68 riders! Fabulous teamwork girls, well done!
Later in the day, Indi R and Nancy D took on the bigger jumps in the 90cm and 1m classes. These jumps were full up and the course was very technical in both classes. In the 90cm, Indi and Nancy finished 13th and 14th, respectively, in a huge class of 50 riders. In the 1m class, Nancy rode well to finish third from Northants whilst Indi achieved top rider and qualified for the National finals in Hickstead in May.
A superb day out and thanks to Mr Rickman and Mrs Saunders-Wall for their support in the afternoon.
Our next outing is in March, so if you have a pony that you compete on please come and see Mrs H-T to join the competition squad.
