Interschool Horse Trials held on the Weekend of 25-26 April 2015
A thoroughly enjoyable Interschool Horse Trials competition was held on the weekend hosted by Tintern Schools. Riders competed across all 3 disciplines of Showjumping, Dressage and Cross Country. This event is a wonderful display of all round riding ability.
Individual results are as follows;
Zali Gosling placed 1st the grade 5, Division 2
Ashleigh Terlato place 2nd in Grade 3 Division 1
Felicity Johnson placed 9th in the Grade 2
Ruby Conlan placed 14th in Grade 3, Division 2
Maddie Frahamer placed 15th in the Grade 4, Division 1
Teams are made up of 4 members from each school. The SMS team consisting of Zali, Maddie, Felicity and Ruby placed 8th which is amazing! Ashleigh was placed in a composite team for the day.
A great effort from our riders in some trying conditions but I am sure they were inspired by the service of our ANZAC’s which was acknowledged with a flag raising ceremony at the venue before the first event.
