Students qualify for schools equine finals

In addition to our traditional sports, our college pupils have been representing the school and competing on and individual level in equestrian events.

The season started with national qualifiers taking place at Bishop Burton on September 27. In the show jumping, Amelia Foster and Hannah Marley both competed, with Hannah taking sixth place in two classes.

On the Sunday, two teams entered the Jumping and Style (JAS) classes. The metre class was a huge success with the team winning and gaining a place in the national championships. The team’s position was secured with a beautiful round by Edward Bradley, who also won the class as an individual.

Amelia and Hannah both took part in the dressage qualifiers at Port Royal on Saturday October 3. Hannah, on her pony Booty Boots, stole the show, taking first place in both Prelim and Novice classes to ensure a well-deserved place at the NSEA National Championships.

The prestigious National School Championships held at Addington Manor over the weekend saw a contingency of pupils represent the school.

Edward Bradley, Harriet Stephenson, Tilly Fenton and Pippa Burdass all competed in the showjumping and JAS competitions. The National Champs saw Hannah Marley compete as an individual in both the Prelim and Novice dressage classes. Hannah rode two lovely tests taking fifth place at Prelim, a fantastic result given the extremely high standard of competition.

The team are delighted with their success to date and are looking to use the experience they gained at the National Finals this year to take Scarborough College to a new level in the equine arena.
