Woodbridge Equestrian team competes at Forest Edge and Lime Kiln, qualifying for County Finals

16 Dec 21

The Woodbridge Equestrian teams took a trip to Forest Edge on Saturday 27 November for the County and Hickstead Show Jumping qualifiers.    

The team were able to field riders across all the heights from 70 to 110cm, and the day began with Harry (Y7) competing as an individual in the 70cm, finishing in an excellent 3rd place out of what was really a rather large class.  

The 80cm team comprised of Phia (Y10), Harry (Y7) and Zac (Y7), who rode fantastic rounds finishing in 3rd place.  

The 90 com team consisted of Katie (Y12), Lois (Y8), Eve (Y9) and Oscar (Y11) who finished in 3rd place overall with Lois finishing in 4th place individually.  

Our 1m teams competed next.  The first team, which included Eve (Y9), Ada (Y11), Lois (Y8) and Oscar (Y11), finished in 3rd place, the highest placed Suffolk team meaning qualification for Hickstead!  Eve also took 6th place individually, qualifying as the highest placed Suffolk rider.  Katie (Y12), Oscar (Y11), Ada (Y11) and Eve (Y9) also competed at this heights, and were lower placed.  

The second of our events recently took place on Saturday 11 December, at Lime Kiln.   On what was an incredibly cold, if not freezing day, the riders were up early to travel to Norfolk and ready to ride by 9.30am.  

Jazzy from Year 5 was first up, kicking off the day in the most positive way by winning Class 1.  Next up was the Prelim 7, and it was a Woodbridge one-two with Phia from Year 10 coming in 1st and Year 7’s Edie in 2nd.  

The Prelim 14 was won by Oscar (Y11), Eve (Y9), Ada (Y11) and Issy (Y11) meaning qualification to represent Suffolk at the County Finals.  Oscar just missed out qualifying as the top individual, finishing in an exceptionally close 2nd instead.  

In the Novice, Woodbridge had an excellent set of results with Oscar (Y11) achieving 1st, Issy (Y11) 3rd, Katie (Y12) 4th Ada (Y11) 5th and Eve (Y9) coming 6th.  

It was such a long day that Ada had to finish her test in the dark! But despite this, and the very cold weather, the team’s spirits remained high, and it was a successful day – huge well done to everyone that took part.
