A Chester schoolgirl is riding high after qualifying twice for the National Schools Equestrian Association’s National Championships later this year.
Ria Ince, 12, had already qualified for the championships as part of a four-strong school team.
But the Queen’s School pupil wanted to challenge herself again and entered the Association’s dressage event as an individual.
Ria and her horse Jade won the preliminary class and also achieved the best score of the day.
Ria said: “It was a great feeling to qualify with school, but I wanted to prove to myself I could qualify as an individual. To have got the top scores is amazing.”
