Mayfield Riders are National Schools Champions Again
Mayfield School Equestrian Squad was riding high after once again winning a number of titles at the National Schools Championships at Addington Manor last weekend (21st-24th October).
A weekend of Championship team successes saw Mayfield take the National Schools Dressage Team Champions title, become the National 1.10m Team Show Jumping Champions and the National Open Arena Eventing Team Champions, where the team was over 12 marks ahead of any other school.
The girls also swept the board individually. Year 10 pupil Molly Faulkner becoming the National Special Jumping with Style 1.10m champion, with Mayfield girls also taking the 2nd and 3rd place and Year 9 pupil Anna Martin became the BE series National Champion, with Mayfield again taking another three section titles in this category.
As a result of the weekend’s success four of our girls, Kitty Ashby, Catherine Haurie-Moss, Molly Faulkner and Amy Whiffen were invited to compete for England in the Schools Nations Show Jumping Cup, again winning their section! Year 13 pupil, Immie Long, was also invited to compete in the Nations Cup Dressage Section, providing Mayfield with their final success to round off a triumphant weekend.
Director of Riding Jill Barker said: “Congratulations to everyone who made up the Mayfield team for the four days. Our tremendous success was the culmination of plenty of hard work but also the most fantastic team spirit which was the envy of many of our fellow competitors.”
