18th Annual Tintern Grammar Inter-School Horse Trials a weekend to remember!
The 18th Annual Tintern Grammar Horse Trials last weekend was an amazing and fun event for everyone who took part! The team spirit and positive attitudes were incredible as the Tintern team threw on their navy and white uniform and represented the school with their horses. As you walked around the venue, all you could see was smiles! The atmosphere was amazing, as different schools and teams mingled and created the strongest sense of sportsmanship and friendship.
In terms of the Tintern Team, we walked away with smiles, rosettes, tears but most of all, the feeling of accomplishment and passion for what we do. Some of the girls who placed did so at their very first competition! This was an amazing experience for them and the reactions from the team when they walked up to collect their rosette from Mr Fry were truly memorable. For those who did not place, or didn’t have the greatest results, all was forgotten as we supported each other and celebrated our relationships with each other and our horses!
Overall, the Tintern Grammar Horse Trials was an incredibly fun weekend, with members of other schools commenting on its cohesiveness and friendly atmosphere.
As Equestrian Team Captains, we are so proud to be able to be a part of such an amazing, dedicated team and we are so grateful for everything everyone did to help out at the event. From the wonderful, hard-working Friends of Equestrian committee to our Team Coordinator Mrs Bezaire and all of the volunteers; all of their work and commitment made the event what it was!

Congratulations to our 13 riders who competed at the Horse Trials on 28 & 29 April. Mr Fry and I were so proud of the way you all represented our school, rode in a spirit of good-sportsmanship and conducted yourselves with grace and goodwill throughout the weekend. Brooke and Darcee have covered all of the important thank yous in their article above, but I will make particular note of our individual place getters on the weekend. Congratulations to Ruby Smiley (Year 5) who placed 7th in her 50cm section, Olivia Garland (Year 10) who placed 6th in her 65 cm section and Amelia Qvist, who placed 2nd in her 65cm section. Well done, girls!
