Congratulations to Tristan, Year 9, who competed in his first ever affiliated BE80 at Tweseldown Horse Trials on Saturday. Tristan won his section, going clear showjumping and cross country finishing on his dressage score of 29.8%, qualifying for the BE80 Championships next year. A fabulous achievement.
Tristan is looking forward to representing the school this year at a variety of National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) events. The NSEA is the recognised body for equestrianism in schools throughout the UK, providing intra and inter-schools competitions for team and individual riders. Competitions for teams and individuals start at grass roots level and build up to national schools qualifiers and annual championships.
Disciplines include Dressage, Show Jumping, Arena Eventing (‘Jumping with Style’), One Day Events, Hunter Trials and Tetrathlons. They take place at local, county, regional and national levels, culminating in the annual National Schools Championships.
