Hope Valley College Equestrian Team

Hope Valley College Equestrian Team has now been running for just over a year and has been out and about competing in the National School Equestrian Association (NSEA ) competitions. Our squad is made up of Caitlin Dean, Olly Mosley, Eve Seymour and Charlotte Elliott. We have also welcomed 3 new Year 7 students, Millie Havenhand, Jemima Oldridge and Charlotte Bradshaw. Over the Summer, the Team has kept training and will be off to a competition at South View in Cheshire on the 26 th and 27th September. Four of them are doing it as a 2 day event and competing in dressage, arena eventing and show jumping. The following week the entire squad is off to Beaver Hall to try to qualify for the Show Jumping NSEA Championship in October.

The Team is open to any pupil who can jump a 70-75cm show jumping course or for dressage, can control a horse in walk, trot and canter in an open field. They also need access to a horse or pony and transport to get to events. If you are interested, contact Mrs Cook in the first instance.
