Kingsley’s Riding Squad members jumped their way to places on the winners’ rostrum at two competitions over the weekend of October 4th and 5th.
At the Winchester House Hunter Trials at Foxhill Farm, Year 10 girls Amy Newcombe, Hannah Gardner and Izzy Rhodes all rode excellent clear rounds, resulting in a team 3rd and an individual first place for Amy.
There was more success at the Southam College show jumping event at Moreton Morrell where Year 7 riders India Marvelly and Eva-Lily Fowler-Drake made their debuts for the squad, riding as a team with Hollie Jones (Year 9) in the 65cm class.
It was a very successful first outing for India who came individual 4th, with Hollie achieving individual first place.
In the 85cm class Hannah Gardner, Amy Newcombe and Megan Watts (Year 9) rode as a team. Hannah came individual 4th and Amy individual 5th.
Hannah, Amy, Megan and Sophie Phillips (Year 9) rode in the 95cm class and came 4th in the team competition, with Hannah placed 7th as an individual.
Riding Squad Manager Mrs Jessett says: “Special thanks go to our Riding Captain Georgia Henry (Year 11) who, although unable to ride herself, was at Moreton Morrell to support and encourage our riders. Also thanks to all of our talented riders and the families who support them and especially to those who turned out on Saturday AND Sunday for Kingsley!”
