Equestrian

We had 4 girls representing CLC in the 2019 U18 National Championships at Frickley Park. It is an incredibly competitive competition with 180 riders taking part, and it is a huge achievement for the girls to have been selected.

Molly and Jaymee were in the 2nd placed team at the international CCI2 class. And Laura and Islay finished as the 5th placed team in the BE100 U18 class.

Congratulations to Poppy in UC5 who recently competed for Great Britain at the U17 Laser Run World Championships in Budapest.

Polo

Lucy has had a very successful summer playing polo. Last week she played in a tournament at Cirencester Park alongside Nina Clarkin. Nina is a former pupil (Class of 1999) and is currently the highest ranked female polo player in the world. This is a huge honour for Lucy, and wonderful for CLC to have a current player in the same team as Nina.
