Show Jumping Competition

25 Feb 22

The Equestrian team had a successful day at the NSEA Duckhurst Farm Inter-Schools Grassroots and Show Jumping competition on the 16th February, over the Half Term break. Unfortunately, the team were down a rider due to an injury and therefore each pupil could only enter the classes as individuals.

Nonetheless, the riders came away with a number of rosettes. Imogen Trott (Fourth Form) came first place in the 70-centimetre class, qualifying for the County Championship at Hickstead, second place in the 80-centimetre class (just missing out on the top spot by 0.1 seconds), fourth place in the 90-centimetre class and lastly, third place in the one-metre class. Jess De lucy (Upper Sixth) also competed in the 90-centimetre class and in the one-metre class, where she achieved a clear round and was placed in fourth place. The show was also Isla D’s (Year 5) first time competing for the School. She rode beautifully at Grassroots level, earning her third place in the 60-centimetre and second in the 70-centimetre class. Well done to all of the team!
