Marijke, Ollie reaching goals
SOARING: Marijke Hartman and Simply Ollie Ooba competed in their first Ekka this year, and placed fifth in the Young Riders Championships. Gatton rider Marijke got Ollie the thoroughbred about two and half years ago, following his career as a racehorse. The duo have been showjumping for the past two years. “It was our goal to get to the Ekka this year and compete in my last year of young rider and hopefully go back next year for the Mini Prix if everything goes to plan,” Marijke said.
