The Equestrian team from Queen Mary’s School were delighted to take 1st place in the National Schools Equestrian Championships. With a team made up of girls from age 10 to 14, the girls travelled to Bishop Burton for two days of hard competition.
With a very young, less experienced team taking part in the Jumping with Style class, the squad made up of Amelia Murray, Amy Bell, Tara Barker and Angel Barton stormed to victory and have managed to secure a place at the Championships at Addington at the end of October.
The school also saw success with their Junior team gaining 5th Place and the Novice Team obtaining a fantastic 3rd place, only missing qualifying by one pole.
The NSEA is the recognised body for equestrianism in schools throughout the UK, providing intra and inter-schools competitions for team and individual riders. Competitions for teams and individuals start at Grass Roots level and build up to National Schools qualifiers and Championships.
