NSEA Pop-Up Dressage November 2022
Congratulations to Lulu S for taking a fantastic win in the November NSEA Pop-up dressage with an incredible 77% in Novice 24.
Pop-up dressage is filmed from your own arena at home and submitted online for judging. It’s open to all NSEA combinations nationwide and you accumulate points throughout the year. Tests run from Intro to Novice and it’s a great way to get some feedback without having to plait up and leave the yard!
NSEA Felbridge 3rd and 4th December 2022
It was a busy weekend at Felbridge Show Ground for our NSEA riders this weekend, with lots learnt and plenty of good results too!
Saturday was the rescheduled county qualifiers: In the 70cm Pernille A had a great round to finish 8th!
The 80cm team of Lilly S, Amber B and Chloe B weren’t placed but Lilly and Amber both jumped great clear rounds! Chloe B was also competing as an Individual in the 1m and jumped a clear round to finish just outside the placings.
Sunday was the Grassroots Regional Championships: We had a 50cm Team of Jess R, Florence B, Rosie C and Holly C who gave it a good go but it unfortunately wasn’t their day. However, Holly C jumped a great clear round and would have been 3rd but she wasn’t qualified for the individual final.
We also had Abbie K and Pernille A competing in the 60cm as Individuals. They both jumped clear rounds in a class of over 50 riders. Huge congratulations to Pernille who won the class by over 2 seconds and Abbie finished in 9th!

The Blue Team of Chloe B, Amber B and Inde W didn’t have the easiest time as a team but Chloe did a brilliant round to finish 5th individually with a great clear round.
Chloe B was the only representative in the 1m class and made it count with a super clear round to finish 3rd individually. Well done everyone!

NSEA Felbridge 6th November 2022
On Sunday 6th November, we had a group of 8 very dedicated riders (and parents!) brave the elements to compete for STE in the 90-95cm Windsor Qualifier held at Felbridge Showground.
The arena was steadily disappearing underwater and the team at Felbridge did an unbelievable job of keeping the show running and the arena safe to jump in. The conditions were not favourable but every single rider and pony put their best foot forwards and jumped mature and sensible rounds appropriate for the conditions.
The St Teresa’s Blue team of Chloe B, Amber B, Inde W and Lilly S finished on a Team score of 12 penalties for 9th with Lilly jumping a beautiful clear round.
The St Teresa’s Pink team of Lulu S, Izzy L, Antonia S and Lottie B jumped some super rounds to finish in 11th.
Well done everyone and let’s hope the next one is a little less damp!
NSEA Keysoe National Championships 24th October 2022
Today was the final day for everyone at Keysoe and a full day of Plate Championship show jumping and National Dressage finals.
It was a long day with the first riders for St Teresa’s jumping just before 9am and the last rider doing their dressage test at 5.20pm!
First up was the 70-75cm plate team of Amber B, Antonia S, Fenella B and Lottie B. A brilliant performance in the first round left them on a team score of 4 and 2nd place going into the jump off. Four super rounds meant the team finished on 4 penalties to take 2nd!
Then we had two teams in the 80-85cm and they both ended up as teams of 3 which increases the pressure. The St Teresa’s Green team of Amber B, Lilly S and Lottie B rode super rounds to finish on a team score of 8 so just missing the cut for the jump off. The St Teresa’s Pink team of Antonia S, Izzy L and Lulu S all jumped great rounds to take them into the jump off on 4 faults. Despite the jump off not going entirely to plan they still came home with a brilliant Team 8th out of 20 teams.
On to the 90-95cm for the St Teresa’s Navy team. Round one saw brilliant clears for Amber B and Chloe B (who did the fastest first round of the competition by 3 seconds!) and solid performances from Lilly S and Lulu S to take the team forward to the jump off on a score of 4f. Unfortunately, a combination of tired ponies and factors outside our control meant a few poles were rolled but it was still good enough for a brilliant Team 6th!
Last but not least was Cassie C competing in the Elementary dressage, the arena was very spooky and Chloe was enthusiastic but they still managed a very respectable 62% score for 7th.
A wonderful weekend full of fantastic results for everyone. What was most impressive was the way the girls helped and supported each other regardless of how they got on and what the results were. They all rode brilliantly and whatever happened came out rewarding their ponies which is what it’s all about.
We definitely need a few days of half term to rest and recover now! These shows are a massive team effort and a huge thank you to all the parents, friends, siblings and supporters who kept the show on the road, stabling in the pouring rain for four nights or trucking backwards and forwards to Keysoe and back!
NSEA Keysoe National Championships 21st October 2022
The NSEA Championships continued today and there was more success for STE.

Chloe B was jumping in the 80cm show jumping and jumped a cracking round to finish on a 0 score for 12th out of 200 competitors!
It was lovely to hear that all the riders were enjoying socialising and celebrating with each other tonight, well done girls and good luck to Chloe tomorrow!
NSEA Keysoe National Championships 20th October 2022
Well Done to the brilliant St Teresa’s Equestrian Blue team who have finished a superb 10th place at the NSEA National Championships at Keysoe today.
The team of Izzy L, Amber B and Lottie B all rode fantastically to finish on a score of 4 faults (which as a team of 3 with all scores counting is even more impressive). Just 4 teams finished on a 0 score and none of them were a team of 3!
Top 10 in the country is an amazing result, well done girls!
