Constance Excels at International Horse Trials
Stamford High School student, Constance Copestake Year 13, competed at the Chatsworth International Horse Trials last month. Chatsworth is one of the prestige events of the spring eventing calendar and hosts 2 international classes with many European riders making the journey to Derbyshire.
Constance was entered in the CIC* category on her 9 year old mare Aprobanta as a preparation run ahead of the British Junior Championships. She rode a superb dressage test gaining a score of 38.4 to take second place which she held onto after the show jumping. The following day Constance went on to produce an excellent cross country round gaining just 1.6 time penalties to secure victory ahead of many professional riders including a certain William Fox-Pitt. Well done Constance!
