A HEREFORDSHIRE dressage rider has qualified for a national finals next month.

Emma Chinn, who lives near Ross-on-Wye, was runner-up in her class at a National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) County Dressage Qualifier at Kings Equestrian Centre in Bromyard.

Chinn, aged 15 and a pupil at Monmouth School for Girls, will now represent Herefordshire as an individual in the National Championships at Bury Farm in Buckinghamshire in April.
