Five equestrians from King’s Ely placed seventh overall in a national jumping final earlier this month.
The Equestrian Team travelled to the home of the infamous derby bank, the All England Jumping Course, Hickstead, Sussex to take part in the NSEA Eventer’s Challenge National Final.
Ryan Shaw , Katie Cameron, Thea Holdaway and Rebecca Everitt were in the 80cms team which qualified for the final months ago.
The course, made up of 16 jumps including a mixture of show jumps and cross-country jumps, asked questions of the horse/pony/rider combinations.
Sue Cameron, equestrian team manager, said: “The team came seventh overall, a great achievement.
“Katie secured a clear round , on a new pony she has only had for 10 weeks and Ryan rode a superfast round.
“Thea competed earlier on in the scurry class as well, and had gone clear , securing an individual sixth place.
