Youngsters impress in Suffolk
Brentwood School certainly did not horse about at the Inter-Schools One Day Equestrian Event as their 90cm team finished second in their category.
The early start was certainly worthwhile as Brentwood students Thomas Philpot, Emma Philpot, Grace Parrish and Imogen Pohl combined to finish on the podium.
The day started with all four members skilfully riding their dressage test despite strong winds at Poplar Park in Suffolk.
The Brentwood quartet continued to impress in the jumping round, producing four clean runs.
Thomas Philpot completed his mile-plus run in just four-and-a-half minutes, while Parrish had to contend with the horse in front of her having plenty of problems.
In addition to the group success, there was also individual delight for the quartet in Suffolk.
Parrish led her dressage section on Gainstwon Heather, while in their respective sections, Pohl was second on Mr Bubbles and Emma Philpot third on Moynoe Gypsie.
Pohl and Parrish also competed individually at the event, again with great success in Suffolk.
Parrish, this time on board Mocklershill Man, won the 100cm section, while Pohl, riding Ardlonan Lad, was second in the 90cm category.
That was not the only success for Brentwood as they also had a great time at the first event this season at the Wix Centre.
Both the 90cm and 100cm teams triumphed in their sections, which resulted in qualification for the National Country Championships at Bury Park in April.
There were also individual placings in the 70cm and 80cm sections for Ellie Burrell and Pohl.
