Millfield Prep School did the double in the Junior Schools competition, claiming both team and individual honours.

Eva Barnett, 13, was last to go in the jump-off and her fast clear of 30.65sec was enough to secure her the individual title. “I didn’t expect to win at all, but I thought I’d just go for it in the jump-off,” said Eva, who rode the 18-year-old Blaencanaid Highwayman.

Her team mate Lily Rhys (12) came third individually, behind second placed Harriet Birkby from the Towers Convent School on Irish Hotshot (31.33sec). Lily rode the former two-star event pony Fond Of A Drop, and they finished on a time of 32.03sec.    

Also on the winning team were Bronte Monks, 14, and Cuffesgrange Lord Admiral, and 12-year-old Hatty Kingsford on Nookie Bear. Bronte is another event rider, who is in her last year of eligibility for the Junior Schools championship; while Hatty was competing at this show for the first time. “I’ve seen Hickstead on TV so it’s amazing to win here,” said Hatty.  

Sharing second equal in the teams competition were Cranleigh School and last year’s winners, Handcross Park.
