KING’S Ely’s Equestrian Team has qualified for one of the UK’s largest horse shows.
Four members of the team – George Hearn, Emily Gredley, Adele Shaw and Ryan De Sousa – travelled to The Jays Equestrian Centre in Bury St Edmunds earlier this month to compete in the show jumping qualifiers for this year’s Royal Windsor Horse Show.
The team came second in the 90cms class out of more than 40 riders, and clear rounds by both Emily and Adele meant that the team finished on just four faults, earning them a place at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May.
George and his pony also produced a clear round in the 80cms class on the day and Adele’s clear round saw her winning fourth place individually.
Manager of the King’s Ely Equestrian Team, Sue Cameron, said: “The qualifiers for the Royal Windsor Horse Show are highly competitive and there were a lot of talented riders there on the day. I am so proud of the team. They rode brilliantly and I cannot wait to support them all at Windsor in May!”
