Sisters Qualify for National Equestrian Championships

25 May 23

Sisters, Year 12’s Ada and Year 10’s Eve, are competing at the British National Eventing Junior and Pony (U16) Championships next week, for Junior and Pony riders respectively taking place in Northumberland at Belsay International; it is 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. Ada represented the Eastern Region in the National Youth Eventing Champs last year where the team took 3rd place; she is hoping to build on this good result next week at Belsay International.

Both girls are also heading to Hickstead on younger mounts the day before departing for the British Eventing Junior and Pony Championships to hopefully help the School to a successful team result in the Eventers Challenge final on Monday.

This is Ada’s last season at Under 18s and she hopes to prove herself enough for potential team selection, who commented, “It is a long way to go to get on the British Junior Team but I have a lovely horse and we have been progressing through the ranks so I hope for a good result at the Championships.”

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

We wish everyone taking part the very best of luck at this top level, particularly Ada and Eve who will be representing Woodbridge School and Suffolk.
