On Friday 29th October, Charlotte H, Clemmie O and Sasha K took part in a NSEA dressage qualifier at Bury Farm, near Leighton Buzzard.  They won the team competition in the Prelimery class beating seven other teams. Charlotte was also placed 1st individually in both the Prelim and the Novice Class – an outstanding achievement. The team have qualified for the National dressage finals, which will take place next April.

The following day, Charlotte and Sasha represented Thornton again at an NSEA Eventer Challenge at Rectory Farm, near Cirencester.  They were joined in the team this time by Imogen B.  The team were placed first in the 80-85cm class, beating 10 other schools, and have qualified for the national finals, which take place at Hickstead in May 2022.
