The VEIS (Victorian equestrian Inter School), ran their series grand final over the last weekend in the holidays. This competition has been ongoing over the year and riders and schools gaining points as the series went on. At the Show Jumping Grand Final, Lilly Trevorrow qualified and rode finishing 6th overall in the series. In the Dressage grand Final Maddison Bailey rode finishing 2nd overall in the series.
Interschool Nationals. We have 3 riders now confirming their places on team Victoria to represent Tintern and Victoria at the Interschool National Championships. This event will be held over a week during the September school holidays. The event rotates states each year and this year will be held in Melbourne, meaning the local competition was hot this year. So it is exciting that this year Tintern will have 3 riders, Lilly Trevorrow in Eventing, Maddison Bailey in Dressage and Aisha Heinrich in Show Horse.
