NSEA Grass Roots Equestrian Regional Finals: Another Great Day for Woodbridge

18 Nov 16

Norton Heath, Saturday 5 November 2016

On a cold November morning, Woodbridge School travelled to Norton Heath keen to improve on their efforts in the NSEA Grassroots Equestrian Regional Final from last year.

Following training by Tina Haslam at Newton Hall throughout the year, the Woodbridge riders had an impressive day.

Woodbridge started the day well featuring within the top three team finishes in the 40cm, 50cm and 60cm fences but then secured a fantastic 1st place and Regional Champions title at the 70cm class with their team of Tess Walker riding Noodle, Perdi Ludgrove riding Billy, Olivia Lubbock riding Annandale Gwyneth and Zoe Newman riding Sliabh Piper.

An excellent team achievement and all round good day for Woodbridge with other placings for Woodbridge throughout the events, however, top Individual finishes came in the 75cm Perdi Ludgrove 1st and Tess Walker 2nd. Perdi’s win of the 75cm capped off an exceptionally good day with the Woodbridge team and as an individual.
