Special mention to Matilda who won the Championship class and has been invited to represent Western Australia at the Australian Interschool Championships to be held later in the year in Sydney. 


First Place Show Horse Secondary Intermediate at the 2023 Saddle Plus Interschool WA State Championship on my Classic Image Of Sefton.  Nick is my absolute dream pony, and I am so lucky to have such an amazing pony that makes me so happy. My love for him grows more and more each day. My love for horse riding continues to grow each day and it has given me so many great opportunities that I am so thankful for. It’s always been a dream of mine to represent WA at the Australian nationals, I really didn’t think that it would happen so soon only being a new partnership but to say that I am so incredibly proud of Nick and this achievement is an understatement. My future goals for Classic Image of Sefton would be to win a Large Show Galloway Class (EWA, SHC), the Royal Show and a Child's Large Show Galloway Class (EWA, SHC). This really has been an amazing experience and I really can’t explain enough how happy I am!
