Castle School Equestrian Team

Castle School now have an Equestrian Team affiliated to the NSEA (National Schools Equestrian Association).
Jasmine Greenwood got us off to a flying start in our very first competition by winning the 1m One Day Event (dressage, show jumping and cross country) at West Wilts. She has now qualified for the national championships. Well done Jasmine, we wish you the best of luck!
 
Team members are able to enter NSEA competitions as an individual or a team member and there are lots of events to enter. If you are already competing regularly and are interested in joining the Equestrian team, please contact team manager, Mrs Colwill, cas-enquiries.tcs@cset.co.uk (or Jo Greenwood) for information. There is a charge of £20 to register with the NSEA, paid to school, and you would need to complete an application form, see link below.
 

There is team show jumping in Gloucestershire on 14th and Arena Eventing at Bicton on 15th September, and Arena Eventing at Hartpury on 28th September so would be great to get some teams together.
