Equestrian Team Success

By Lisa Cesareo, Equestrian Course Leader, 26 February 2016

On the 15th and 16th February the Sixth Form College Equestrian Team were busy competing at Wix Equestrian Centre against other schools and colleges in the county. The dressage team which consisted of Hannah Everitt, Rose Arthunbot, Millie Yeend, Amy Thacker and Livvy Phillips came a very respectable 7th place. The Tuesday saw the most success for the team though, this time in showjumping, with Livvy Phillips and Amy Thacker returning for a second day, accompanied by Chloe-ann May and Emily Kerr. The teams did fantastically against incredibly strong competition to win both of their classes- the 90cm and the 100cm as a team, qualifying for the national championships at Bury Farm in April! Individual placings went to Emily Kerr who obtained a third in the 90cm and a 2nd in the 100, Livvy 5th and Amy 6th in the 100cm. The team will now continue training with Claire Gradley in preparation for these big championships.
