On Saturday 22nd October, Izzy Picton-Turbervill and Lily Howlett travelled to Buckingham for the National Inter-Schools Riding Championships to compete in the Jumping with Style and Show Jumping categories.
The day kick started with Lily and Izzy competing in the Intermediate Jumping with Style class. A quick performance by Izzy put her into a respectable fifth place. Later on, after an excellent performance on Jack Frost II in the Show Jumping, Izzy qualified for the final where she competed against riders from Sheffield High, Belvoir High and many others. After a sharp turn into one of the last jumps and a clear round Izzy put herself into first place, two seconds ahead of her competitors making her National Champion in the Open Show Jumping Class. Minutes later Izzy then took part in the 1.15m open class. After another fantastic round, where Izzy rode over 2 seconds faster than her other competitors, she landed herself a super second place behind a rider from Queen’s Chester School.
