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.
