My favourite event of the year is this weekend! We are off to the Equestrian Queensland Awards night on Saturday in Brisbane. It is a fantastic night out, celebrating excellence and achievement in our sport, and it is great to see everyone out of their riding gear and all glammed up. It is always a fabulous party!
We have a lot to celebrate this year, with 4 nominations for our close knit equestrian family.
Firstly, Lockyer Equestrian Group are finalists for Club of the Year, for the third year in a row. Our committee works so damn hard to make our club amazing for its members, so hopefully this is our year.
Then we have our BWC2* Championships, nominated by Dressage Qld, for Event of the Year. This is a mammoth event for our club, that takes months and months of preparation, blood, sweat and thankfully not too many tears, and we are absolutely honoured to be nominated by our sport sub-committee. I know our event director, K1, will be chugging prosecco from the bottle if we win that one!
Thirdly, my lovely student, Brooke, is up for Rising Star of the Year. I have taught Brooke since she was in primary school, and she is an incredibly switched on rider and a fierce competitor, so it would be lovely to see her name up in lights. 🙂
Lastly, I am a finalist for Coach of the Year. I am so excited about this, and I look forward to lining up against some of the best coaches in Queensland for the title!
I absolutely love doing what i do, and i am so blessed to have a wonderful group of riders who I regularly coach. To have them think my worthy of this nomination is an absolute honour, and I appreciate their support very much.
So, hopefully my next blog will be filled with all sorts of good news about our success, but regardless, we will no doubt have a spectacular night out and have plenty of stories to tell!
