Equestrian team compete at Tendering Show Ground
Some of the equestrian team went to Tendring Showground on Sunday 22 September for the first inter-schools competition of the new year. This was a RPL (regional points league) show jumping competition, competitors gain points for rankings in each class and schools at the top of the league at the end of the school year qualify to compete in the Regional Points League Championship at Keysoe (NSEA Championship Plate) in November.
The RHS team of Emma S, Molly N, Emily B and Harriet L won the 70cm class with Harriet 3rd, Emily 4th and Emma 6th individually.
In the 80cm class the team of Emma S, Harriet L and Mia M finished in 4th with Emma 6th individually. In the earlier classes Jasmine W and Niamh M progressed to the final round and were unlucky to be outside of the placings.
It was a very delayed competition but team spirit was very good and Emily B and Mia M who are both new to the school integrated really well into the equestrian team. A great start to the new season.
