Equestrians excel

STUDENTS from Bishop Druitt College rode high in the saddle at the recent NSW Interschools Equestrian Competition at the Olympic Equestrian Centre in Sydney.

Four primary and two secondary students made the trip the state capital where they competed over five days against 400 school riders from throughout the state.

Mia Parkes and Siobhan O’Mara competed in showman, combined training and dressage sections.

They had three different dressage tests to remember, two different jumping courses, and other classes that were very difficult over three days.

The girls scored very well in all dressage tests and had great jumping rounds.

Fellow primary school riders Alex and Amy Campbell also did well competing in the dressage.

Bonville sisters, Billie and Taylor Shone competed strongly in the showman competition, which combines dressage and showjumping.

In finishing second, Taylor was selected to go to the Nationals competition later in the year.
