MADEC re­warded for rid­ers’ 2019 win

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport -

SOME 200 horse rid­ers gath­ered in Tatura in late Septem­ber 2019 for the Vic­to­rian Horse Rid­ing Club’s an­nual show jump­ing event, with Mans­field tak­ing out one of the top prizes on the day.

While they had trained hard all year, it was not their ded­i­ca­tion to the sport but their per­for­mance on the day which has landed the team a nom­i­na­tion for the quar­terly Team of the Year award.

There were 49 teams of four rid­ers from HRCAV clubs all over Vic­to­ria and NSW com­pet­ing – and the Mans­field and Dis­trict Equine Club re-wrote its own history.

In what was the first time in MADEC’s history, its team won a TTT (Top Teams Tro­phy)

Event – some­thing to be ex­tremely proud of.

“It was pretty amaz­ing,” MADEC sec­re­tary and life mem­ber Ker­ryn Good­ing told the fol­low­ing the event.

The win has earned the lo­cal club the op­por­tu­nity to host this year’s Vic­to­rian Horse Rid­ing Club’s event.

“We are all very ex­cited to have this op­por­tu­nity,” Good­ing said.

Plan­ning for the big event this year will com­mence shortly.
