The National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) Southern Regional Qualifier took place at Felbridge Showground. 11 year old Ruby Light and her pony Ulster Tournerie, representing Burgess Hill Girls, jumped 90cm to win first place.
This is an amazing achievement for a rider whom is only 11 years old, competing against 60 other children aged up to 16 years. Her victory means she will go on to represent Burgess Hill Girls at the prestigious NSEA National Championships at Addington Equestrian Centre in October 2019.
Ruby has already started preparing for the Championships. She said:
“I am proud and excited to be representing Burgess Hill Girls. I’ll be training even harder and I am going there to win and bring that title home!”
