Success for Riders at Felbridge Clear Round Show
On Friday 16th March, four pupils from the Royal Alexandra and Albert School competed at the Felbridge Clear Round Jumping Show.
The team were taken to the Show by the School’s Stables Manager, Irini Economou, and Stables Assistant, Bob Farrell. The Felbridge show was an opportunity for the girls to compete again after a break from attending external jumping shows.
Team member and Year 10 student, Katie Thomsett, said “The show was a good opportunity for us to work as a team and get some experience for future competitive shows. We had a really fun time and we all cleared our rounds.”
The show was the first time the four girls had jumped as a team, and it was an experience they wish to repeat in the future. They jumped heights ranging between 60 to 80cm and cleared every round, winning rosettes for their performances. They rode on the School's horses, Achilles, Cookie, Dexter and Lily.
Now the girls want to keep training as a team with the hopes of competing in future inter-school shows that will put their talents to the test.
