School Riding Team at Hickstead

9 Jun 23

The Woodbridge School riding team had a fantastic time away over the half term, competing at the National Schools Equestrian Association Championships at Hickstead.

Our 70-75cm Eventers Challenge Team consisting of Year 8’s Harry, Zac and Edie, along with Year 7’s Grace, took the lead at 9:05am and then had a nail biting wait of six hours as the other teams competed to try and knock them off top spot. And so it was with absolute relief as well as joy when they found out that they were the Champions. They rode four fantastic and competitive rounds; a very strong and technical course for our team and they really made it look easy.

Our same team went forward the second day to compete in the 80-85cm Eventers Challenge championships, and again gave four very strong rounds and three clears for 10th place. This is still a big achievement for these riders who are stepping up to the technicalities of the championships.

We then took two teams forward for the 90-95cm Eventers Challenge Championships,

Team 1
Year 13’s Katie
year 10’s Oscar
Year 12’s Ada
Year 10’s Eve

Team 2
Year 8’s Edie
Year 8’s Zac
Year 12’s Florence

Both Teams gave a brilliant effort and Zac rode a brilliant clear to achieve the 4th best score and support his team.

Well done to all our riders who showed determination in all their rounds, all coming away and learning a great deal.
