Five Braemar College students recently travelled to Sydney with their families to ride for Victoria at the Australian Interschool Equestrian Championships.
Our riders competed in the following events:
Alice Taylor – 60cm combined training
Harry Luxmoore – 80cm combined training & Preliminary dressage
Isabelle Luxmoore – 80cm combined training and Advanced dressage
Jess Martin – Novice dressage
Lizzie Brand – 60cm combined training and Novice dressage
It was a championship of highs and lows for the Braemar College team with podium finishes and personal best performances for some and disappointment for others including Alice when her horse was injured in the first phase of her event forcing her to withdraw from the second phase.
Some of the championship highlights for our riders:
Jess Martin – 2nd Novice dressage
Lizzie Brand – 2nd 60cm Combined training
Harry Luxmoore – 3rd 80cm Combined training (and winner best performed retired racehorse)
Isabelle Luxmoore – 6th Advanced dressage
Congratulations to everyone who made the journey to Sydney for the Championships. A fantastic effort against the very best riders in the country.
