Thornton’s equestrian team qualifies for the NSEA National Schools Championships.
Our equestrian team's stand-out performances at Buckinghamshire’s inter-schools show jumping competition earlier this month has catapulted the girls into the championship event to be held later this year.
The grassroots team – Isabella R (Year 3) Anna S (Year 4), Lizzie L (Year 5) and Charlotte L (Year 7) – and their ponies had a very successful day at the qualifiers. The team secured first place for Thornton in the grassroots style and performance class by gaining the highest marks.
On an individual level, Anna earned first place and Isabella came third out of more than 40 entrants. The team also placed second overall in the 50cm class where Charlotte took the ride on Isabella’s pony to complete the fastest clear.
