Kilgraston pupils at Blair Atholl Horse Trials

28 Sep 2022

The world-renowned Blair Horse Trials took place 25th – 28th August in the stunning setting of Blair Castle. It is one of the highlights of the British equestrian calendar, if not in Europe and beyond, with tens of thousands of spectators flocking to the event.

A number of Kilgraston pupils took part in this year’s competition across a variety of classes. This included eventing and show-jumping.

Lower Sixth Charlotte and horse Joey competed in the BE100 which took place in the sunshine on Friday. Charlotte and Joey had a super dressage and jumped double clear round a huge track with just a few time penalties which unfortunately left them out of the placings.

Also in Lower Sixth, Daisy and her horse Freddie qualified for the prestigious BE90 Scottish Championships – a huge achievement. No rosette this time but a huge well done to Daisy and Freddie.

Upper Fifth’s Meadow and Gerry jumped a lovely double clear in a very busy 90cm British Showjumping class, just missing out on the placing too.

Lower Sixth’s Flora and Sydney was also competing in the BE90 class and had a strong performance.

Kilgraston was also proud to sponsor the Mountain & Moorland Lead Rein & First Ridden Championship. This was, as always, an extremely popular class judged by Mrs Julia Woods.
