The year started well when Roselly Hamlett and Poppy Barrott won individual first and third places at the Hurst Inter-Schools Team Showjumping Competition at Hickstead in September. Roselly, Poppy, Lauren Workman and Amy Hitch have also represented the school at various equestrian events, the highlight of which has been 14 year old Roselly’s huge achievement of being crowned 2014 National Schools U19 Arena Eventing Champion. Watch this space as she recently beat off stiff competition to go through to the 2015 national final.
Very honourable mention must also go to Jamie Butt who is the reigning Senior Boys’ Pony Club National Tetrathlon champion. Tetrathlon is a very demanding sport where participants compete at swimming, shooting, running and cross-country showjumping (ie Modern Pentathlon minus the fencing).
