UEA’s Equestrian team hosted a mini league BUCS competition on 28 January. Although the weather for the event was typically British – glimpses of sunshine followed by gusts of wind and flurries of rain – the event saw a dressage competition followed by a show jumping event in the afternoon.
UEA competed against the numerous other universities, including Cambridge and Essex, at the Bacon Centre at Easton College. The facilities at the Bacon Centre were top drawer, allowing for indoor competition when the weather threatened to overshadow the event.
The scores were excruciatingly close following the dressage, meaning that the show jumping event would determine the final standings. Strong performances from Abigail Forsyth, Amber Whelan, Charlotte Armstrong and Evie Walker meant that UEA claimed victory.
The Equestrian team would like to congratulate all involved and extend their thanks to Hilary Francois and all the staff and horses at Easton College.
