2019 Canberra Classic – Wrap Up

The Canberrra Classic this year was a smaller event with a number of riders in the team sitting this one out due to change overs in horses, demanding year 12 requirements.  So the whole affair was far more relaxed.

All the hard work for some of our combinations really paid off and it was lovely to see some riders registering some PB scores.

🤩 Maddie and Snoopy prepared strongly and took their best efforts into the arena, bringing home some wonderful results including a PB on the Sunday in the Preliminary 1C.

Oliver and Ringo have come such a long way in such a short period with a high light of the classic picking up a 2nd ribbon in the Novice 2C. I have no doubt like all the other great partnerships this one will continue to develop into Championship form.  Great work

Harriet and Mika showed good form picking up placings in both the Novice Championship classes, and Harriet in her own words was very pleased with Mika.  Big things to keep coming.

Katherine and Starry performed extremely well bringing home the Novice Championship in the Pony division.  All year they have built towards this result and it was lovely to see it all come together in the 2C scoring a 70%+ Well done!

The baby of the team, Fleur, Finders Keepers had a strong first Championship outing bringing home Reserve Champion Preliminary horse.  Huge thank you must go to Kaila who stepped in and rode beautiful Fleur after Amanda injured herself.

Thank you to everyone that came to support  #TeamGP especially the wonderful Zoya Patel that kept the crew calm and on track we were all very happy to have them there. 🤩

Plenty of concentrated effort and huge achievements we are very proud of our riders, there riding and there attitudes to learning and constant improvement.
