The School is entering a team of 3 riders in Her Majesty’s Services Team Challenge Cup. This competition is sponsored by Land Rover and held in the main Castle Arena. All riders will parade in front of Her Majesty the Queen and, if the RHS team performs in the top twelve, a nominated member of the team will take part in an exciting jump off. The Services Competition is open to equestrian teams attached to the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, RAF, Army and Police Force, Volunteer Reserves, Cadet Forces and schools with Combined Cadet Force (CCF) who have a Royal Charter.

The Royal Hospital School is also entering a younger team of 4 riders in the National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) Inter Schools Competition. This is held in the British Horse Society (BHS) Arena and is good practice for riders who may progress to the Services Competition in the future.
