The Ampleforth College flag was flying high and proud at Royal Windsor Horse show at the weekend, as our School Equestrian team competed in the Inter Schools Show Jumping Championship class. 

The team of Ellie Evans, Lara Evans and Peter Pilling all jumped superb clear rounds to finish 8th out of a class of 20 teams. This result is made all the more memorable as a team would normally consist of 4 riders, however, sadly our 4th team member was unable to attend at the last minute.

Qualification for this class takes place over the previous year, however due to the Covid pandemic, and so few competitions taking place this past year, our qualification was carried over from November 2019.  The top 20 schools in the country are then invited to compete in the final at Royal Windsor.

Well done to the team, we are very proud of you all!
