On Sunday 11th December the Wycliffe Prep School Equestrian Team travelled all the way up to Bromyard for the Regional Grassroots Show Jumping finals. It was a very early start with our two youngest members of the team, at 6 and 8 years old, competing in the 40 and 45cm classes. Lottie and Cody Beachus both learnt the course off by heart and rode their ponies with determination and confidence to jump clear in both classes. Lottie went on to win the best fancy dress as a gorgeous elf!

Earlier this year Isla Skelston, Alice Tomblin and Katie Hanson had qualified for the 50cm regional final and today they were all determined to do their best. It paid off to walk the course a few times as they picked out which corners to cut and which turns to make in the timed section to all produce clear rounds and put pressure on the other teams. The girls finished with a team bronze medal, third on the podium, with Alice Tomblin finishing 4th individually and Isla Skelston in silver medal position, second on the podium.

Next it was the 60cm class that they all qualified for along with Lucy McKerrow. The course was up to height and they had brought in the fillers and spread fences causing difficulties to many teams. Our team finished on a score of 4 faults and waited nervously for the results. It really shows what a tricky course it was and how well the girls did as once again they finished in the bronze medal position, 3rd on the podium, an outstanding achievement against 12 other teams. The last class of the day for our girls was the 65cms class. Alice and Isla once again produced faultless rounds with Alice securing the runner up 2nd place on the podium and Isla the winning gold medal spot. A very long but hugely successful day for Wycliffe’s Equestrian Grassroots Team. Thank you to all the parents for their time and support the girls represented Wycliffe brilliantly and really showed how talented they are.
