The NSEA Dressage & Showjumping competition took place at Moreton on Saturday 5th October. Competing were students from The Blandford School.
In the dressage the team Jess, Kate and Zoe came 5th, having ridden some really nice Prelim and Novice tests. Whilst in show jumping the team in the 80-85cm class (Lily, Kate and Jess) came 3rd, and the team in the 90-95cm class (Lily, Kate, Jess and Lottie) came 4th. Both teams potentially qualifying for Addington, TBC.
The girls all rode brilliantly with individual placings going to – Zoe who was 8th in Novice dressage, Kate who was 4th in the 80-85cm and Lily who came 5th in the 80-85cm. Not bad considering there were over 50 competitors in some of the classes. Lottie also did a nice clear round in the 1m-1.05m class just missing out on a placing.
The girls really represented the school well – looking even smarter with the new Blandford School Numnahs (bought from Mr John Paulley MBE’s Trust Fund which supports a number of students each year, including those with a talent in sport).
