The last Sunday of Half Term saw the Hickstead and Windsor Qualifiers taking place at West Wilts Equestrian Centre.

First up making their St Mary’s Equestrian debut were Year 7 girls, Philippa and Amelia, in the 70cm Class. Philippa jumped a fantastic clear round, finishing just outside the top ten.

It was then onto the 80cm Team of Daisy (Yr 10), Philippa (Yr 7) and Sophie (Yr 7). They finished in 6th place in a competitive class, with Philippa also picking up an individual 9th.

Sophie then jumped a fantastic clear in the 90cm, finishing in individual 7th place.

Alice (Yr 10) then finished in 4th place in the 1m Hickstead Elite Qualifier and Alice and her pony Star 12 then went on to win the 1.10m Pony Section Class. This was Alice's first competitive class at this height and what a fantastic job Alice and her pony did! They have also qualified for the Hickstead Elite Championships which take place in the summer holidays and the National Championships at this height, which will take place in the autumn.

Well done to all of the other girls who competed on Sunday.
