A fun day out yesterday for Derby High School's Equestrian Team.

Lizzie Hurdley and Georgina Pugh-Lewis went to their first NSEA eventers challenge. It was a course of showjumps followed by a course of cross country jumps in an arena. They travelled down to Lucton School in Herefordshire to compete. Lizzie and Georgina both competed in the 80cm class, Georgina then went on to do the 90cm class. It was a lovely friendly atmosphere and they are excited to compete in more eventers challenges in the future.

Zara Dunnicliffe-Smith (Year 6) was placed sixth in show jumping at Beaver Hall Equestrian Centre and has qualified for the NSEA grass roots finals in December. An excellent result for Zara and her pony Chocolate Buttons in their first ‘proper’ competition!
