Millfield Prep Equestrian Raise £550 for Children in Need

Millfield Prep Equestrian hosted an internal showjumping competition for riders this week, to raise money for Children in Need.

Pupils from Year 2 in Pre-Prep up to Year 8 in the Prep School took part, with a total of 26 riders competing in fancy dress costumes and fun onesies.

Riders competed in six different classes, with heights from one metre to 40cm, with the winners being presented with rosettes.

In total, the competition raised £550.00 for Children in Need.

Millfield Prep's Director of Equestrian, Hayley Newman, says, "It was a really fun event and all of the children enjoyed it tremendously. It was fantastic to give them the opportunity to compete and raise money for a brilliant cause."
