Competing

At Mayfield we are proud of our Inter-schools competition record: over the past 25 years, we have won more championships than any other school, including the National Schools Championships eleven times in total. We are current National Schools Jumping with Style Champions and have managed to retain our title for four consecutive years. We are also County Team Dressage Champions, as well as current Show Jumping Champions at all levels: mini, novice and open. You can see our major achievements here.

All riders are encouraged to join the Mayfield Equestrian Squad, whatever their level or chosen discipline. Our squad competes at all levels, from grass roots to open championship level in Dressage, Show Jumping, Hunter Trials, Jumping with Style and Eventing. There is also scope to compete outside of School and many of our pupils compete at affiliated competition in the three main disciplines, including several who participate in Junior Regional Novice Eventing.

It does not matter if you have not competed before. We have girls who have started their competing career jumping 70cms and have left happily competing at 1.10 meters.  Although we will encourage and support you to build your confidence both as a rider and in your knowledge of equine management, we also want you to have fun. Enjoying your time with your horse and developing your partnership is just as important as wining those rosettes.
