Tom Beattie, C Social, Shell represented the England Show jumping team in the U15s Nations Cup against Scotland and Wales on the first weekend of Leave-Away. There were six riders from each country selected and it was a very competitive competition with every rider really `going for it`. Tom was last to jump for England and in front of a very noisy cheering crowd he managed to do the fastest clear round time of the day by 0.55 seconds resulting in him winning the Individual event for England. A very close and extremely exciting event!
Over the same weekend Tom also competed in the Finals of the National Schools Equestrian Championships where he won two more National titles. Representing his prep school Beaudesert Park he became National Arena Eventing Champion (a mix of show jumping and cross country jumps against the clock) in the 75cm/80cm class as well as National Arena Eventing Champion in the 85/90cm class whilst proudly representing Radley College.
