Interschool showjumpers converge on Mount Macedon
BRAEMAR College’s interschool showjumping day attracted 120 keen youngsters, riding 360 rounds.
It was the third event of the Equestrian Victoria interschool series, with competitors travelling to Mount Macedon from as far away as Cobram, Albury and Sale.
These days do so much for the sport and their organisation is a monumental effort by a very small band of people, who keep the cogs turning planning and running the events.
