Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

AF­TER the lo­cal Jump­ing Eq­ui­tation and Show Jump­ing com­pe­ti­tion was can­celled last week due to wet weather, many Cannonvalley rid­ers headed down to Pioneer River Val­ley Pony Club for a state qual­i­fy­ing Jump­ing, Eq­ui­tation and Show Jump­ing event on the weekend.

All rid­ers per­formed well for their first com­pe­ti­tion of the sea­son, with many lo­cal com­peti­tors scor­ing im­por­tant qual­i­fy­ing points for the State Cham­pi­onships in April.

Abi­gail Lee won the eq­ui­tation and showjump­ing 10-years and un­der with Lach­lan Grey com­ing a very close sec­ond.

Ge­orgina Lee fin­ished fifth in eq­ui­tation and came away with sec­ond place in the showjump­ing 12 years and un­der.

Tori Mans­field placed sixth in eq­ui­tation, fol­lowed by Lanie Krog who fin­ished in sev­enth.

Amy Gray was very un­lucky to miss out on a plac­ing but should be com­mended on her ef­forts.

Breeanna Purvis fin­ished fifth in the eq­ui­tation 13 and un­der 15years, and came away with third place in the E Grade show jump­ing.

Sarah Dobe came fifth in the eq­ui­tation 15 and un­der 17-years, third in the D grade and first in the 60cm un­of­fi­cial on her horse Sassy. Sammi War­ren and her horse Rosie came third in eq­ui­tation 17 and un­der 21-years and went on to win the Pony/Galloway Show Jump­ing ti­tle.

Six-year-old Char­lie Lee won the un­of­fi­cial 10-years and un­der and got her first rug.

All rid­ers should be proud of their achieve­ments and all rep­re­sented the club ex­tremely well.

GREAT WORK: Char­lie Lee, Sarah Dobe, Sammi War­ren and Abi­gail Lee on their horses with (front) Ge­orgina Lee and Lach­lan Gray trav­elled to the Pioneer River Val­ley Pony Club for their state qual­i­fy­ing jump­ing eq­ui­tation and show jump­ing event on the weekend.
