Gatton Star - - NEWS -

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.
