11 year old Ruby has taken first place at the National Schools Equestrian Association Southern Regional Qualifier, competing against 60 other riders of ages up to sixteen. Ruby will now represent Burgess Hill Girls at the National Championships in October.
The National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) Southern Regional Qualifier took place at Felbridge Showground. Ruby and her pony Ulster Tournerie jumped 90cm to win first place.
This is an amazing achievement for Ruby, who is still in the Junior School. Her victory means she will go on to represent Burgess Hill Girls at the prestigious NSEA National Championships at Addington Equestrian Centre in October 2019.
Ruby has already started preparing for the Championships. She said:
“I am proud and excited to be representing Burgess Hill Girls. I’ll be training even harder and I am going there to win and bring that title home!”
