Goondiwindi Horse Sports

​A keen rider on the day.

​Inglewood State School P-10 riders in top condition for Goondiwindi Horse Sports.

The Inglewood SS P-10 Equestrian Team competed strongly at the Goondiwindi Horse Sports event held just prior to the recent school holidays.  A team of 11 riders were set poised to compete when news of the outbreak of the Strangles virus (for horses) was detected in the district.  Although this had some effect on our team, our remaining 6 riders went on to compete and had a fabulous day.  Competition was strong however the students came away with several ribbons which were a credit to them.  As there were many schools competing from far and wide (eg. Dalby and St George), the event was a terrific opportunity to come up against some of the best riders in our district (and beyond) and perfect those little areas for improvement.  The enthusiasm of our team was high and contributed to the sense of accomplishment felt by all at the closing of the day.  Thanks to our Team Instructor, Michelle Ballard, and our riders Shannon, Atlanta, Holly, Ellie, Jacob and Thomas for making the day so memorable and enjoyable for all!
