Emmaus Equestrian have again taken out the title of Champion Primary Show Horse team at the Interschool State Championships, meaning they can now take part in the national event.
This is the third time in six years the team has taken the top spot.
The state championships were held in Toowoomba on the coldest weekend of the school holidays.
Equestrian team coordinator Maria Gould said it was a great effort on the part of all the riders to brave the weather and perform so well.
“These show horse classes were quite large and were made up of quality horses and riders so our girls have performed exceptionally well,” she said.
”The girls were very honoured to be wearing the state colours.”
The team ranges in age from 8 to 14-years-old.
The girls said training for state championships involved lots of early mornings and late evenings.
Individual awards were:
Taylah Noy won primary champion show hunter.
Lexie Armstrong won reserve champion primary show hunter.
Layne Frankcom came 4th in primary show hunter.
Ayshia Noy came 5th in primary show hunter.
Ala Frankcom came 4th in primary show hack.
Ella Devantier won reserve champion secondary show hunter.
Fellow equestrian team members Sarah and Emma Gould are on the reserve list for nationals.
The National Interschool Championships will be held in Sydney in September.
