Leweston Equestrian Team celebrate recent Success
Tuesday, July 9, 2019
Leweston has had two very successful trips to the Somerset Levels competing at Kings Sedgemoor Equestrian Centre.
The NSEA JWS day saw two of our teams qualify for the National Championships (90cm and 1m) and Individual qualifications for Flora SB (4th, 80cm), Clemmie K (1st, 1m), Flora SB (3rd, 1m) and Loveday (4th, 1m).
At the second trip, our Show Jumping teams competed in the Summer heat to win 3 out of the 4 team classes (70cm, 90cm and 1m) and come 2nd in the 70cm.
Matilda J was 2nd in the 1.10m and earns her qualification to the Championships at the top level.
Congratulations to team members Jessica W, Hen J, Flora SB, Loveday F, Mia K, Molly C, Maisy M, Clemmie K, Isabel W and Matilda J and many thanks to KSEC for hosting two busy qualifiers.
Further congratulations goes to the two teams (Aqua and Cobalt) who competed at the recent Moreton-Russell ODE at Moreton EC. The teams took 1st and 2nd place in the Inter-Schools NSEA 90cm class and came home with some fantastic prizes and rosettes. Flora SB, and Maisy M took 3rd place in their respective ‘Open’ sections.
Well done to Sophie S (6th), Issy H (9th), Clemmie K, and Loveday F.
The tradition of holding the ‘Captain’s Meal’ at the end of our school year continued as our Equestrian Captain Maria S hosted the supper in Tamburino Gold, Sherborne. Prize-giving took place afterwards and all the squad were awarded aptly titled certificates and gifts. Maria was thanked for her contribution to the teams and everyone thanked Mrs Roberts as Team Manager. A fantastic way to round off the academic year.
