Equestrian news

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.

Congratulations and thank you to:

  • All GEST members and students for making the day successful. This event took all term to plan.
  • The parents who donated prizes and sponsored events.
  • Mrs and Mr Cohen, Mrs and Mr Matherson and Mrs Sharon Currie who came out to support the event.
  • Our scorers - Erica and Lizzie Buchanan (ex-parent and student).
  • Past Glennie Equestrian students and parents for attending and speaking on Saturday evening to commemorate 35 years in Interschool Equestrian.
