Coventry's Marston leaps to victory

Craig Gibbons 16th Mar, 2018

COVENTRY’S Sophia Marston secured three wins in the latest Just for Schools League at the Hargate Arena.

The 12-year-old had a very successful outing by storming to victory in the 80cm, 90cm and 100cm classes.

Riding for Heart of England School, Sophia and her two ponies Meiklekims Secret and Blackstown Spot On braved the horrible weather to ride three double clears.

Sophia said: “Meiklekims Secret is a lovely older girl that has taught me so much, whilst Blackstown Spot On is my pocket rocket who gives 200 per cent to me and makes me giggle as he loves jumping more than I do.”

She aims to continue improving her riding and ensuring her ponies enjoy their days out at shows as much as she does.

“I love competing with my friends, I love seeing them do well and I love being supported by them. Fingers crossed we will all be partying at the Nationals,” Sophia added.

The Just for Schools League run by British Showjumping offers riders the chance to compete individually or as a team in classes ranging from 70cm to 1.10m, with the chance to qualify for the British Showjumping National Championships at Stoneleigh Park in August.
