Equestrian team take out North Island Horse Trials

ACG Strathallan’s equestrian team has won the North Island Secondary Schools Horse Trials.

Students Molly O’Leary, Lara Butler-Gallie (Year 11), Eden Doull (Year 12) and Rene Ryall (Year 13) made up the winning team.  

It is the seventh time in 11 years the school has secured a win, but the dominant way this year’s team competed was a first, said coach Annie Styles.

The girls all performed well in the dressage phase and added no jumping penalties to their score. This left them well ahead of the field – 25 penalties ahead of second place, in a sport that sees events won and lost by margins as slight as 0.01 penalties.” 

They were also the only team in the competition to complete on their dressage score. 

Equestrian is a popular sport at ACG Strathallan. The team holds several training sessions throughout the year, competes at inter school events, and runs a two-day camp each year to give students an introduction to the culture of the sport.  

Students in Year 7 and above who own their own horse are welcome.

Congratulations to the successful team!
