During the holidays three members of The Towers Equestrian Team, Bea C, Flo C and Harriet B, competed in the Hurstpierpoint College National Schools and Pony Club Championships, held at Hickstead.
The event had a truly national feel with many top schools from the north, Ireland and Scotland present. It was really exciting as all competitors were able to jump in the main international arena & spectators were allowed in the Members’ Area and boxes.
Bea and Flo performed brilliantly despite coming directly from 9 days of consecutive competioins so understandably both the riders and their ponies were a bit tired!
The team did really well, coming just out of the placings.
Harriet continued into the jump off as an individual, as she had completed a double clear.
She finished Reserve Champion and had led the class until the last competitor (from renowned Equestrian School Mayfield) – pipped her by 0.100th of a second.
Harriet received a shield, rug and sponsorship prizes of tack and feed.
Congratulations to all three riders.
