Glennie Interschool EQ State Qualifier

On the weekend of the 17th & 18th of March, 17 riders and 23 horses travelled to Toowoomba Showgrounds for the Glennie School Interschool State Qualifier.  The SCOTS PGC Equestrian Team was very well represented.  The conditions were favourable to welcome three new team members, Astrid Harrison, Lillian Sharpe and Sonia Sharpe.  It was a disappointing absence for Lucy Jackson-Sharpe whose horse was injured the week before the event.

In a field of nearly 200 entries, not only did the College riders present themselves in a consistent and professional way across the three disciplines, but the results speak volumes for the intense effort and training being undertaken by each of them.  The overall results were as follows:

The College camp was blessed with some outstanding meals at the end of the long days thanks to self-appointed camp cooks Peter & Julie Naylor.  Their efforts were greatly appreciated by one and all.  A special mention to welcome Mitch Mack back for his first competition, the team hasn’t been the same without you!  This weekend we are looking forward to the Warwick Show programme, a rare weekend with no travel, and we wish our riders every success!
