Show experience a key attribute of Lysaght‘s
Kerry-Ann Lysaght is cousin to famed Olympian Mervin Bennett and a winner of a silver individual medal at the 1976 Montreal Olympics.
Lysaght comes from great riding blood lines and is an accomplished hack show rider.
Growing up in Carnarvon, she learned to ride through her local pony club and competing at gymkhanas, and eventually joined a polocrosse team, competing regionally throughout WA.
Growing older and work commitments took her to NSW where her show-horse career began. She competed heavily in NSW when in her early 20s, winning and placing in many Galloway classes, turn-out classes in official hacking, even competing in the prestigious Garry Owen class in Sydney.
Lysaght also had the opportunity to frequently show in hand pintos, arabs and show hacks in various breed classes in Sydney and WA.
Lysaght’s refined eye for conformation, rhythm and willingness of horse, is drawn to soft-handed, quiet riders who are eager to learn and have fun.
