Mayfield's youngest impress at National Dressage Finals

Published Monday 27th of April 2015 11:53:18 AM

The very youngest members of the Mayfield's Equestrian Squad are celebrating after coming a very close 2nd in the National Inter-County Dressage finals, an outstanding result, especially against riders who are as much as 7 years older than them.

The independent all girls' school's Junior Dressage Team of Georgia Thomson (11), Anna Martin (11), Molly Faulkner (12) & Katie Higgins (14) represented East Sussex, and were pipped to the top spot by only one point!

It was the first time that any of the girls had ridden at championship level, under the pressure of not letting the team down, as well as riding their tests from memory. The girls seemed to take it all in their stride with impressive individual results as well as the team competition: Georgia was 5th in the prelim and Molly was 7th in the novice.

Mayfield's Director of Riding, Jill Barker commented 'The girls exceeded expectations and we are all very proud of them. The team was fantastic they supported each other passionately but managed not to over pressurise each other, and as a result they achieved an incredible result, coming second at their first attempt at championship level. A very promising result for the future of the Mayfield Equestrian Squad!'
