Tintern placing exceptionally well on Interschool Equestrian leader-board
Last Thursday 12 September, six members of our Equestrian Team travelled to Boneo Park to compete at an Interschool Combined Training and Dressage Day. Our team showed incredible sportsmanship as well as achieving some great results. Amelia Qvist in Year 9 placed 3rd in the 80cm Secondary Combined Training, Bridie Wescombe in Year 8 (pictured) placed 4th in the 95cm Secondary Combined Training and Ruby Smiley in Year 5 (pictured) placed 2nd in the 60cm Primary Combined Training. In the Senior pure dressage phase, Ella Trevorrow in Year 10 placed 4th. Across the day, the whole team exceeded all expectations by achieving a whopping 64 points towards the series, which moved our school from 26th place to 9th on the leader-board out of 72 schools. We can’t wait for the Final round of this series on 1 December and hope to see more of our team there! Congratulations to all of the girls and parents who represented Tintern with pride!
