County Championships

Marlborough riders made their mark on Sunday 24th April with a series of successes across the region.

Marlborough finished in third place in Sunday’s County Championships with Nell Hargrove (IH Re), Imo Brook (MM Re), Innes Casini (MM Re) and Daisy Mitford-Slade (MM Re) finishing third in the 1m class. This was an excellent achievement, not only for getting to the Championships but for doing so well against 20 other schools.

St Mary’s School held their competition at West Wilts with large classes and strong competition. Hope Nicholson (MM Re), Milo Kennedy (PR Sh) and Bella Bullen (EL Sh) jumped in the 90cm JWS with great style marks and just four faults giving them a sixth place finish.

Violet Elworthy (MO Re) and Amelia Heard (IH Re) joined Milo and Bella in jumping lovely rounds in the 90cm SJ, with individual placings for Hope (fifth) and Violet (sixth) and just a fence down for Milo and Amelia, with a second place finish for the team overall. Violet, Amelia and Bella also jumped in the 1m SJ and each managed an individual placing and a first place finish. Bella and Milo then finished their day with great rounds in the 1m JWS.

Thank you to all involved and congratulations.
