A bright future for the newly reinstated St Neot's equestrian team as they compete in their first outing at the National Schools Equestrian Association 'Jumping with Style' qualifier.
Berkshire College of Agriculture played host to the first outing of the newly reinstated St Neot's Equestrian Team, comprising Roslyn, Georgina, Harriet and Molly. The four eager riders (and their mums) set out at the crack of dawn to compete in a National Schools Equestrian Association “Jumping with Style” qualifier. With enthusiastic team spirit, the girls tackled a technically challenging 70cm course, consisting of a mixture of show jumps and cross country fences. There were mixed fortunes as Roslyn and Georgina jumped textbook clear rounds, whilst Molly and Harriet, with less experienced ponies, unfortunately did not complete the course. Roslyn went on to achieve another extremely well ridden clear round in the 80cm class. All the girls rode with great skill and determination and with such qualities the future looks bright for the St Neot's equestrian teams.
Anna was not eligible to ride for the team at this event, as she regularly competes at a higher level. Representing St Neot's as an individual, however, she has already competed at three NSEA events and on Sunday, had a sensational result in winning the 1.05m class. Anna has now qualified no less than three times for the NSEA National Finals at Addington later this month. A fantastic achievement!
