Riding success for King's Hall
The King’s Equestrian Team recently went to King's Sedgemore to compete in an Inter School/Pony Club Eventers Challenge competition.
The teams entered, consisted of Jaime and Danielle Page, Anna and Sophie Flatt, Julia Louw, Lilly MacNeice and Lara Chapple. In the 60cm-70cm class, the team was Jaime, Danielle, Sophie and Lilly. After two clear rounds, one pole down and an unfortunate fall, the King’s Hall team finished a fantastic 2nd, beating some strong competition including The Polden Hills Pony Club, Hazlegrove and Sidcot School, with Jaime coming an impressive 4th as an individual.
In the 70cm-80cm class, the team was Jaime, Danielle, Anna, and Julia. There were another two clear rounds, one pole down and again a fall! The King’s Hall team once again came home with 2nd place, beating Hazlegrove, AxeVale and the event organisers, The Cotley Pony club. Julia came an amazing individual 5th from a class of 40.
In the 80cm-85cm Julia came 6th as an individual and in the 90cm-95cm Lara did a lovely clear round riding against some stiff competition from Millfield, Queen’s and Seavington.
