Alice Clennan, Equestrian Centre Manager said: “In every class we entered, a Queen Mary’s team or pupil won first place, which is a fantastic achievement.

The girls should be congratulated for their commitment and dedication.”

Ella, Peggy, Sophie and Pippa performed outstandingly, and were awarded the Royal Windsor ticket, which also qualifies them for the county championship at Hickstead in May.
