State Interschool Equestrian Championships 2016
May 13th, 2016
The 2016 State Interschool Equestrian Championships were held at the State Equestrian Centre during the school holidays. Year 11 students Olivia Gava and Lauren Rumph and their horses (Pure Warrior and Redline Classic Design respectively) made up the Lesmurdie SHS team this year. The team was managed by Miss Rogers and Amy-Louise Ross (2015 Lesmurdie SHS graduate and competitor at last year’s Interschool).
The girls rode well and were proud to represent their school at the event. Olivia and Pure Warrior made it through to the Dressage finals, and managed to earn 5th place overall – an amazing achievement in a very competitive event. Lauren and Redline Classic Design were also very successful. They jumped a clear 90 cm round and then raced the clock in their jump-off round, placing 3rd in the 90cm category.
Congratulations to both Olivia and Lauren on their successes!
Thanks to Amy-Louise Ross for giving up her time to co-manage the Lesmurdie team and for being our chief team photographer.
