The 3rd Annual running of the HHSA Young Horse Competition at the Gatton Indoor, QLD last weekend. This competition is open to all Horses and Ponies, not just Hanoverians. Many members helped on the day, thank you to every one of them. Special thanks must go to Dean Izzard, Anthony Reckin, Kim Kulper, Clare Muller, Janette Lewis, Kirsty Phillips and Kaitlin Colless, this small band of happy workers did their best to keep smiles on everyone’s faces. Sue Crockett was our professional photographer: suecrockettphotography.com/photography.php?sec=dressage Photos are available on her website (photograph folders can be found in the sidebar).
Competitions are not possible without sponsorship. Our major sponsors were Rural Steel Supplies and Running Cool. Please support our sponsors when you next go to buy horse feed or steel for a new project. The rugs were supplied by the Hanoverian Verband in Germany and by Ros Lipp Saddleworld Toowoomba.
