Eques­trian Group reigns supreme at com­pe­ti­tion

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

The Whit­sun­day Eques­trian Group hosted the an­nual supreme two-day com­pe­ti­tion at the Can­non­va­l­ley Pony Club at the week­end.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing rid­ers trav­elled from Sa­rina, Mackay, Dysart, Collinsville, Bowen and Townsville to chal­lenge lo­cal rid­ers in both dres­sage and showjump­ing.

The supreme event is the club’s big­gest com­pe­ti­tion for the year and pres­i­dent Tracey Davies said the dres­sage nom­i­na­tions ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions, with a sec­ond dres­sage arena re­quired to ac­com­mo­date the large num­ber of rid­ers.

Whit­sun­day Eques­trian Group mem­bers Char­lie, Abigail and Georgina Lee won the 60cm, 80cm and 100cm show- jump­ing to earn the tro­phy rugs spon­sored by Beef Em Up Stock­feed.

Lo­cal rider Tori Mans­field also achieved the high­est point score for the ju­nior dres­sage while Melissa La­mont recorded a sim­i­larly big score in the se­nior classes.
