Young rider gallops to victory

One of the School’s new Lower Third pupils has been featured in national equestrian magazines, after winning her class at Hickstead International Horse Show.

Kate Hewson was awarded the ‘supreme championship’ prize at the event, with her win being documented in Horse & Hound and Local Rider magazines. She then went on to win her class and championship at the National Side-saddle Championship and was awarded highest place newcomer in her equitation final, and winner of the Middleton cup for best junior rider at the show.

Kate followed this triumph with the junior rider cup as the best young rider at the Edenbridge & Oxted show during the last weekend of August, and an overall fourth place finish as part of a Southern team at the U25 National Dressage Championships in Lincolnshire.
