Imogen Yule from the Godolphin School took the top spot in the Senior Schools Individual Final at today’s Hurstpierpoint College National Schools & Pony Club Jumping Championships.

“I have been waiting for years for this moment!” said a delighted Imogen, 18. “I have been trying for six years consecutively to win this final and it has finally happened.”

In the teams, Millfield won for the third time in four years, having already taken the title in 2014 and 2016. The trio of Flo Norris (Darling HDX), Alanna Clements (Tinka’s Rox) and Katy Cabourne (Cupid) all produced clear first rounds, meaning the team had to jump-off against New Hall School in Chelmsford, but a slow and steady clear by Flo Norris was enough to seal the win for Millfield.

“It was amazing as I won here last year on the same horse so this has just topped it off,” said Flo, who came third individually as well behind her team mate Katy, who had to ride one of the horses belonging to her school after her own pony went lame the day before the competition. “This is the first time I have ever ridden him let alone jumped him, but he was amazing and so easy,” said Katy.

Third team member Alanna had hoped to do well but couldn’t believe they’d actually won. “This is my first year jumping at Hickstead and it has been incredible,” she said.
