One hundred and seventeen horses travelled to Wingello from all over NSW, including from Victoria and Queensland, to participate in the 160km Championship event or the 80km ‘no frills’ event run in conjunction.

The weather was perfect, with a cool foggy morning leading into a beautiful sunny day.

We congratulate our new State Champion Jennifer Annetts and her horse Littlebanks Dizzy on a fabulous result. And we congratulate the two Junior riders Shantel Nagle and Tayla Warren who tied for equal third Junior in the 160km Championship event to win the New-Moon Stud sponsored prize rugs.

We sincerely thank all the hard-working volunteers who gave up their time to make the event such a success. We also thank all those riders and their supporters who have passed their kind comments and thanks on to us.
