March Equestrian Update

Chipping Campden School’s Equestrian team attended their first competition of the year on 13 March with a NSEA show jumping competition held at Kings Equestrian, Bromyard. Five riders from Years 7-10 were entered across four classes.

In the 65cm class, Louis Holdsworth and Churchtown Lad, made their equestrian team debut for school. Louis from Year 7 entered as an individual rider and rode very well with just two ‘unlucky’ poles down. (For the uninitiated, the class name refers to the height of the jumps that riders are tackling!)

Next was the 70cm class with Kathryn Albutt from Year 8 and Llangybi Picasso also making their school debut. She joined Meg Righton from Year 9 on Cornish Rebel II, Clara Dews from Year 10 on Summer Mayfly and Louis to make up the CCS team for this category. Everyone gave a great performance and achieved a fabulous 2nd place overall against stiff opposition. Kathryn also gained an individual 4th place – not bad for her first outing with us!

In the 80cm class, Year 8 Grace Slatter on Storm joined Kathryn, Meg and Clara to make up a team. Again, all the girls produced some superb riding, and CCS was once more in the ribbons with a team 5th place. Grace then entered the ring as an individual in the 90cm class, and rode a good round although she was not placed on this occasion.

A huge well done to all the riders who took participated in this first outing of the season in Herefordshire. A successful and enjoyable day was had by all, and the whole team was a credit to Chipping Campden School, not only for their riding skills, but their sportsmanship, determination and turnout!

The CCS Equestrian team always welcomes new members, and anyone interested in joining should contact Louise Dews, Team Manager on 07769 905464. It is great fun and they have regular training sessions as well as competing.
