On Sunday 15th January at Mullacott Equestrian Centre, Izzy Beard (Year 11) competed Dury picking up 4 faults in the 70cm and coming second in the 75cm. This means she has qualified for Cricklands and the Sunshine Tour at Hickstead. Izzy was worried that Dury would spook in the indoor arena, but he performed well and excelled under the pressure of the jump-off.
Maisie Atkinson (Year 11) competed on Itsy, who jumped double clear in the 70cm, coming fifth. She also completed two classes on William – winning the 90cm and coming 2nd in the 85cm. Maisie has also qualified for the Sunshine Tour at Hickstead.
The Sunshine Tour is a national series that encourages grassroots and unaffiliated riders to participate in competitions in the disciplines of dressage, showjumping and showing. Riders who finish in the top four places at a qualifying event will qualify for the Championships at Hickstead.
Well done, girls!
