It has been three times lucky for The Glennie School students participating in this year’s Interschool State Equestrian Championship.

The school’s Equestrian team has proudly taken our this Lorette Wigan Cup for the third consecutive year. Glennie Equestrian Coordinator Miss Jacky Redman said, “The Glennie team had a very successful campaign at the State Interschool Equestrian Championships, taking out a number of key awards.”

“Our Glennie riders are to be congratulated on their hard work, dedication to their disciplines and the teamwork they exhibited throughout the competition,” she said. Keeleigh Wise, Lucy Stanford, Charlotte Drynan and Becci Roellgen were a force to be reckoned with, taking out Champion Secondary Show Horse Team.

Kate Johnstone, Becci Roellgen, Piper Wise and Keeleigh Wise combined their skills to take out Champion Secondary Dressage Team. The Glennie School riders also placed third in Showjumping (Holly Hurst, Mia Nolan, Emily Wheatley and Charlotte Drynan), Combined Training (Emily Wheatley, Becci Roellgen, Keeleigh Wise and Kate Johnstone) and Eventing (Georgia Wheatley, Keeleigh Wise and Charlotte Drynan).

Riding at State Championships is always a great experience. There is always a good feeling of camaraderie as everyone supporters the riders to do their best,” says Charlotte Drynan.

Glennie’s only Junior Years rider in this year’s State Championships, Year 6 student, Ellie Stenzel, was awarded the Reserve Champion Primary Show Hunter. Glennie Equestrian welcomed two new riders during the Championships, with Year 12 student Piper Doust riding in her first State Championships and Year 10 student Charlotte Drynan, the newest member of the Glennie Equestrian family. “I really enjoyed my first event with the Glennie Equestrian Team,” she said. The girls were very welcoming and the Team is really well supported by an amazing group of parents and volunteers.
