Outside School: 'Matilda Qualifies for Horse of the Year Show'

Matilda, from Year 1, has qualified to compete at The Horse of the Year Show, the biggest show of the year for all showing competitors, where she will join 500 riders and their horses from across UK, Ireland and Europe at NEC Birmingham on 12 October.

Her achievement is the result of her efforts during the summer holidays, when Matilda and her ponies competed in a number of horse shows up and down the country, including six days spent at a large Championship show, where on one day she rode from 9am through to 4pm with only an hour’s break.  Matilda also came second in a class of 27 top riders/jockeys aged nine years and under in a Best Rider Competition at the End of Season Championship Show. 

Following her success, Matilda was invited to appear in for a "Young Rider Interview" in the September issue of The Showing Journal.  You can view this article by clicking the link below:

Matilda is continuing to work hard to prepare for The Horse of the Year Show in October.  Following the event, she will have a few months to relax from events before it all starts again in March next year.
