Eleven of our Equestrian Team represented Derbyshire at the NSEA County Show Jumping Championships at the weekend, in team and individual events. Our individual riders showed great skill and competitive spirit and ended the event with a very fine set of results in the individual events. Lauren Maycock achieved a placing just outside the top eight for the National Dressage Competition; Amelia Maycock was placed second in the 70cm class; Jess Sutton represented Derbyshire in the 1.10m Pony event and was placed sixth; and Molly Fletcher finished eighth in the Horse section of the 1.10m event. Well done to everyone for producing such strong performances. Our teams had some real successes, of which we are very proud indeed: We entered teams in the 80cm and 1m classes but the courses were as challenging as you would expect at this level, and our teams didn't quite manage a place on the podium for these events. Josh Blythe, Eve Slater-Codman, Jessie Elfleet-Ward and Lauren Maycock represented Derbyshire in the 90cm class. They finished with the same number of points as the team from Hampshire, only to be knocked into second place on a slightly slower combined time. This makes our 90cm team reserve champions, which earns them a place at the National Final in October. Amelia Maycock, Charlie Goddard, Amy Critchlow and Lilli Brocklehurst competed in the 70cm class, which involved 24 teams completing both outdoor and indoor courses. Our talented foursome won the event! Excitingly, this means that they gain entry to two further competitions: the National Final and also representing England against Scotland and Wales at the Nations Cup competition, both in October. Well done to all of you on this fantastic achievement! All of our riders, whatever their final placing, were complemented on their conduct and behaviour. We are very proud of them all, and also want to thank their parents for their tireless support.
