- Why Tara
The North West Equestrian Expo, or the ‘Coona Expo’ as it is affectionally known was held recently at the Coonabarabran Showground.
This iconic five-day horse event attracts up to 600 riders and more than 700 horses annually and includes dressage, polocrosse, working/stock horse challenges, show jumping, ring events, team penning, team barrel races and pentathlon.
Tara’s three competitors, Rubie, Year 10, Myfina, Year 9 and Amy, Year 7 did a magnificent job of representing Tara with pride and enthusiasm riding in their chosen disciplines plus trying things they had never attempted before!
They were enthusiastically supported on the ground by Jet, Year 10 who was unable to compete at the expo this year.
Thank you to our riders, their wonderful horses and families/support crews for being such great representatives of our school.
The future looks bright for Tara’s Equestrian Team. Results are below.
