Greg Grant Saddlery IQ & PCQ Invitational Showjumping event - Wrap Up

November 27-28 saw riders from Interschool Qld and Pony Club Qld meet for a Show Jumping competition at the Toowoomba Showgrounds. This wonderful initiative was organised to support the riders from both organisations to enjoy a final event of 2021 in lieu of the cancellation of both their National Championships (due to COVID-19 restrictions).

In the year of Tokyo 2020, the event organisers have taken a leaf from the Olympic format and created an event that had Individual classes as well as a Teams event for riders. With the youngest rider participating being 9 years old, there was a total of 62 riders and 75 horses participating over the two days with classes ranging in height from 80cm to 115cm.

The wet weather was not kind, however it meant that everyone could experience jumping in the indoor arena at Toowoomba and all classes went ahead as planned without any issues. The standard of jumping was very high and competitive, it was great to see so many riders meeting their goals and ending the year on a high note.

The event was generously sponsored by Greg Grant SaddleryNational Luxury HomesRangeview Farm EquestrianGen-Y Hitch AustraliaAussie Blue Heeler Products and Sky High Equestrian. It was extremely well supported and enjoyed by everyone who attended - so much so, it could become a calendar event. It was wonderful to see the camaraderie between all the riders and their supporters and to acknowledge both equestrian organisations.
