Eventer Challenge qualifiers

Brentwood was on flying form at the Eventer Challenge qualifiers held at The Jays Equestrian Centre, Bury St Edmunds last Sunday. The team consisting of Charlotte Cooke, Grace Parrish and Sophie Philpot started the winning run by taking the 85cm title with three super clears.

Charlotte was also placed 2nd on her second pony, as all Brentwood riders qualified for the championships at Hickstead in May. The 95cm team of Grace Parrish, Ben Hogarth, Sophie and Thomas Philpot put in great performances to carry on the successful run to record a fine overall victory.  Thomas finished 5th and Charlotte 2nd in the individual placing. In the last class of the day, the jumps were built up to a 105cm. Poles were falling as riders tackled the course but the Brentwood team of Grace, Sophie, Thomas and Ben kept calm and were determined to be placed second with Thomas jumping the only clear round to win individually.
