Ada and Eve’s Success at British National Eventing Championships

9 Jun 23

Sisters, Year 12’s Ada and Year 10’s Eve, competed at the British National Eventing Junior and Pony (U16) Championships last week, for Junior and Pony riders respectively taking place in Northumberland at Belsay International; it was Eve’s first attempt at the Pony Championships which is a three-day event. To get to these Championships, the combination of horse and rider have to compete at a number of events at increasingly higher levels, with a level of results to qualify to enter.

Ada and Eve have both represented Woodbridge at multiple equestrian team events and National Finals including Eve taking the National Pony 110cms Jumping with Style Title at the end of last season and being a team member that secured the Regional Points League National Title for the School.

With Horse & Country TV filming on the Friday of the Championships, the cross country in particular, it was an exciting event for everyone taking part.

Ada celebrated success with 7th place, and was one of only six to finish on her dressage score which is an amazing achievement! Ada represented the Eastern Region in the National Youth Eventing Champs last year where the team took 3rd place, and she has also just been asked to join the training squad for the GB Junior European Eventing Team which is an incredible achievement!

Eve also did brilliantly, lying 16th out of 38, with only 18 completing, after Cross Country, but sadly her pony wasn’t comfortable in the final Showjumping phase as so she stopped. One of only 18 out of 38 starters that completed the Cross Country, which was at the highest level in the country for U16s, Eve has just one more year in the U16s so this will have been an excellent experience for her.

Well done to both girls, who represented our School and themselves exceptionally and good luck with everything that lies ahead!
