Woodbridge Equestrian Team Qualify for Hickstead

2 Feb 24

Last Sunday two of our equestrian teams travelled to the Inter Schools County Dressage Competition held at Suffolk Rural College, Otley; so local to everyone no startling early morning to contend with set us up for the day nicely!

The warmup tests were first where Year 10’s Elodie had a great start, winning and scoring 75%. Elodie has only recently joined the Woodbridge School Equestrian Team, so this is very impressive – well done Elodie.

This success continued as the next warmup test was also won, this time by year 13’s Katie who had a huge score of 79.77%. Brilliant work Katie.

Next up was the County Prelim Team competition, and it was a hattrick for Woodbridge as we took another win with a team of Year 9’s Harry, riding Irish Dancer IV, a pony he had only ridden half a dozen times, scoring 61.67%, Year 7’s Jasmine on Volandero Amber Dancer scoring 64.63%, and Year 10’s Elodie riding Mushera Westside scoring 62.96%. Great work Harry and Jasmine!

And finally our riders competed in the County Open Team Competition, again with a team of three riders who also did incredibly well – it was quite a day for Woodbridge. Year 8’s Grace rode in the Prelim on Malin Spike managing a brilliant 68.65% taking 1st place individual. In the Novice competition, Year 13’s Katie scored a fantastic 67.86% riding Grannus Top Dollar, and Year 7’s Jasmine, our youngest rider on the day, gained 62.50% riding Firsedge Stockley Blossom. These results meant we secured the County Open, with Katie winning 1st individual, Jasmine placing 2nd – well done girls!

As both teams won, this meant that Woodbridge qualified to represent Suffolk at the County Championships at Hickstead in May 2024, which is absolutely super.

Each of the students represented themselves to a very high standard, an absolute credit to Woodbridge School.

A shout out and thank you to all of the parents for their support throughout a sunny but actually freezing cold day.
