Last weekend two of our Sixth Form pupils from the King’s Equestrian club competed at Bradwell U18-100 competition.
Bradwell is a British Eventing one-day competition consisting of a dressage test, a showjumping round and a cross-country round. U18-100 is a section for under 18s where the height of the fences is 100cm. Both Georgie D and Holly W competed in this competition where both cleared a tough cross-country course. Holly W finished a respectable 5th. Well done to both girls on this fantastic achievement.
Equestrian club at King’s is open to all year groups, boys and girls, who have access to a horse/pony and transport. As a school we compete in NSEA (National Schools Equestrian Association) events which cover a range of disciplines including dressage, showjumping and arena eventing. Currently, we have 16 boy and girl NSEA members representing the school from L4-U6.
Due to Covid-19 the competitions have been limited this season. We had four pupils enter an online NSEA dressage competition where their entries were videoed and sent to be judged. The next event as a school will be the NSEA Dressage competition on the 22nd May at Allens Hill.
We look forward to seeing the King’s Equestrian club back to training and competing.
