Over the Easter holidays the Hanford Show Jumping teams both competed at the qualifying rounds at Morton Equestrian Centre near Dorchester. There were two teams competing one of 4 (Betsy, Alice, Clemmie and Ishbel) and another of 3 (Fleur, Georgia and Lara).
The course required the girls to jump a clear round before they could then jump aginst the clock. Out of first team of 4 three completed a clear round and went on to jump aginst the clock and ended up coming second. Unfortunatly one of the team's ponies just rolled a pole which meant that the team of 4 were not able to go forward to the nationals. However the team of three were more lucky and all jumped clear and were impressively fast on the timed section.
We wish them all the best at the Nationals this weekend at Leighton Buzzard.
