Knebworth's Caitlin Wornham is having a great year so far as she leads two of the four British Showjumping East Region Junior Club Leagues.

She tops the standings in the 70cm and 80cm leagues with the British Showjumping’s Club League offering riders the chance to qualify for the National Championships held at Warwickshire’s Stoneleigh Park this summer.

The 11-year-old won the 70cm Junior Championship last year and will no doubt be hoping to repeat her success riding Ballylee Boy, who she has ridden since June.

She said: “He was my sister’s pony before. He is very loving and really looks after me.”

To qualify for the British Showjumping National Championships riders need to sit within the top 20 on their respective leagues.

They will then receive an invitation to join the top 20 from each of the other seven regions to compete at the prestigious event.
