Millfield did the double today at the Hurstpierpoint College National Schools and Pony Club Jumping Championships, winning both the Senior and Junior Schools Championships. They are the first school to win both sections of the competition in the same year since 2005.

Henry Crow (Craughwell), Flo Norris (Darling HDH) and Talullah Bartlett (Leanorth Candyman) provided a team score of just four faults to finish top, ahead of Newbridge College from Co Kildare who were second.

Flo has only had the ride on her horse for just one week, and the pair have obviously clicked straight away. “She’s really sweet and easy, and she enjoyed jumping here,” she said.

Talullah events up to one-star level with her 17.2hh gelding, and describes him as ‘pretty neat’ over showjumps. “I really didn’t expect to qualify for the main arena, so to come here and win is very special,” she said.

Henry showjumps and plans to ride in point-to-points in the future. His grey gelding loved jumping in the main ring. “He’s got loads of ability, but I’m now quite big on him so sadly he’s for sale,” he said.

The individual winner in the Senior Schools division was Jemima Stratton and her own Jefke – who is known in the stable as ‘Rambo’. “He acts like his namesake!” said the rider from Marlborough College, who turned 14 last week. “We event and compete in Pony Trials, and are aiming for the Europeans. He definitely finds the showjumping phase the easiest,” she added.

It was Jemima’s first time competing here. “I didn’t have a plan in the jump-off as I have never done one on him before,” she added. “But he’s really quick and seems to turn for the next jump before I’ve even asked him to.”

Deputy Headmaster of Hurstpierpoint College Tim Leeper was on hand to present prizes to today’s competitors. “It’s been a wonderful day, with some excellent showjumping,” he said.
