The Moira House Equestrian Team swept the board last weekend with notable successes in many different categories. Our show-jumpers Flora Alessandroni (Year 13) and Sasha Baldwin (Year 4) excelled at the Inter-School competition at Felbridge Show Ground. Sasha blitzed round the courses coming 2nd in each class out of 45 competitors of all ages. Riding her pony Alfie, she got a huge round of applause from the spectators for her superb ride against the clock. Flora then followed up with a classy, technical ride to take 2nd place in the 1m Open on her horse Chester. Hannah Nelson (Year 7) was busy at the Heathfield Show also at the weekend, showing her pony, Harrold, in Championship classes. Our youngest rider, Rosie-Sue Maynard-Watkins (Year 2) ventured out for the first time to the Bexhill Horse Show and won Best Leading Rein and Best Rider classes, scooping a silver trophy and two red rosettes! She was accompanied by Flora who led her in her classes, and who is enjoying coaching the emerging talent at Moira House School.
