Preparatory School Equestrian Team - 30 May 2014

CoraDuring the Easter Holidays members of the Clifton College Equestrian Team competed at Summerhouse Equestrian Centre in a NSEA event. 

The team consisted of Izzy Atkins (US), Jack Powell (Y7), Lucia Sarsby (Y8) and Corabella Hill (Y7). The team rode incredibly well and were placed 7th overall.

Individually, Corabella Hill riding her horse Jeffrey, came 2nd overall but 1st for Avon and so was crowned County Champion. This also meant that she was to represent Avon at the Nationals.

On Saturday 26th of May, Corabella travelled to Bury Farm to compete at in the Nationals. It consisted of two rounds of show jumping - her first round was clear, but in the tougher timed second round, she unfortunately had two fences down whilst racing the clock. This placed her 17/28 (due to the faults) but Jeffrey flew round in a very fast time. Had she gone clear, she would have come 3rd! This is a fantastic achievement for someone who has not been riding very long and has only been in partnership with her horse Jeffrey for 3/4 months. A great achievement - very well done Cora!
