Seaford Qualifies for Elite Show Jumping National Championships

Photo 2webOn Sunday 4th February the Seaford Equestrian show jumping team were out competing at Felbridge near East Grinstead in the NSEA 1.00m Elite Show Jumping inter schools qualifier for the South East. Over twenty schools in the area were competing for this prestigious qualification. Lucy Sanders, Seaford’s Equestrian Team Manager said: “The Seaford team was made up of Olivia Macdonald, Jessie Schute, Beanie Bradley and Flora James and having achieved good steady clear rounds in the previous class, but remaining unplaced, we realised that only the fastest clears would secure a prize. After much planning and studying the course trying to find the tightest lines to the fences we were ready to jump.Photo 1web
All four girls rode brilliantly with clear and fast times which were thrilling to watch and and I was delighted with their high standard of riding. Despite trying hard no other school was able to match us meaning that not only were we the top school in West Sussex but we won the class over all and qualified for the Elite Show Jumping National Championships at the Hickstead All England Show Ground in August.  Thank you to the parents for their support and to the riders for such a fantastic result for Seaford!”
