Over 200 entries were received from 99 riders for The Glennie School 2019 Michael Nolan Racing Interschool Qualifier (Combined Training, Showjumping and Dressage). The qualifier was held on 6 and 7 April at the Toowoomba Showgrounds.
This year’s special feature was the Toowoomba racing industry’s partnership with Glennie Equestrian, supporting and promoting the re-homing and re-training of former thoroughbred racehorses. Throughout Glennie Equestrian’s 35 years of participation in Interschool Equestrian, ‘off the track’ thoroughbred horses have featured in Glennie teams. Glennie is proud to be in partnership with the local racing industry to recognise the importance of these horses in our sport.
During our Interschool Qualifier, the Glennie Equestrian Supporters Team (GEST) awarded a garland to the Champion ‘off the track’ thoroughbred in Dressage, Combined Training and Showjumping. All of the ‘off the track’ thoroughbreds also received a rosette for competing over the weekend.
Special mention goes to Skye Bogenhuber (leading female jockey), Clear Mountain Fairview Stud, Edwards Saddlery, Michael Nolan Racing, and the Toowoomba Turf Club for their partnership.
