Copthorne Show Jumping team returned to Golden Cross in West Sussex for the half term Inter school team showjumping competition as the double reigning champions of the 2 ft 3 and 2 ft 6 classes. The team of Sophie, Roselly, Georgia and Harriet got off to a flying start with all four riders going clear in the 2ft 3 to take a well earned place in the jump off . Once again the riders and ponies rose to the challenge and they all went clear retaining their title by over 2 seconds from their nearest rivals. Copthorne pulls off the 2ft 3 Double at Golden cross. The jumps were raised and the course lengthened for the 2 ft 6″. There were 12 teams many with riders up to 18 years of age were trying to knock Copthorne off the podium. Only three teams, including Copthorne went clear with all 4 Copthorne riders going clear again. The jump- off course was raised once again and was held at a fast and furious pace. Al three teams had 4 faults and Copthorne were just pipped into third place. What a fantastic performance especially considering we were up against more senior and experienced riders. To cap off the day Copthorne in their now customary red blazers and hat silks were awarded the best turned out team of the whole event. A proud day for all.
