The Jays Equestrian Centre near Bury St Edmunds is proving to be a lucky venue for riders from King’s Ely.

Following recent team wins there in the showjumping, many of the same riders were instrumental in the team victory in the 80-centimetre and 90cm classes at the end of last month.

The Cambridgeshire school sent six riders to the event, covering five classes.

In the 60cm section, Rebecca Everitt gained a well-ridden individual second place aboard her pony Rita, while although not matching Everitt’s efforts Thea Holdaway put in a confident round aboard pony Bemji.

Both riders were in action in the 70cm class, but on this occasion neither managed to break into the top-three positions.

The first of the two team victories on the day came in the 80cm class, which comprised of Katie Cameron, Rachael Attwood, Freia Gould and late substitute Everitt, who produced a clear round to complement her team’s results.

There was an individual second place for Cameron on Maylands Delight and a sixth place for Attwood on Flo Flying Fantasy.

In the 90cm class, Eleanor Fairey and her pony Tetcott Cracker Jack gave the team first place, while Attwood bagged an individual fifth place.

There was no team entry in the one-metre class, the final event of the day, with both Cameron and Fairey competing as individuals.

A change of pony for Cameron on her second ride Dundee Spirit, proved rewarding with a fifth place in a class where less than half the class produced clear rounds.
