This Saturday’s cross country meet at Charlecote Park has been cancelled, due to the strong winds.

Fantastic Ponies and Riders!

Warwickshire Hunt Pony Club’s Junior Team has been crowned National Junior Champions. The five-strong team included Croft pupils, Isla H-W and Charlie Y - congratulations! The Warwickshire Senior A Team, including former Croft pupil, Isabella H-W, has qualified for the Horse of The Year Show in October.

The Croft’s own Riding Team competed at The Cheltenham Ladies’ College Showjumping event on Sunday 15 September. Team member, Honor Y, writes: The Croft Team had a fantastic day out at the NSEA Inter-School Showjumping Competition, hosted by The Cheltenham Ladies’ College, at Rectory Farm, Cirencester.

In the team were Ursula L riding Toddy; Joshua L on Slipper; and Honor Y riding Barney. We entered two classes. The first was the Cooke-Yarborough Cup; we all went clear, finishing second as a team. Individually, I was placed 9th. The second class was The Stapleton Cup and we did well to finish 6th in this bigger class. We all did really well with our ponies and didn’t get too wet in the wind and rain!
