WARWICK rider Amy Bradfield is part of an elite group of horsewomen who have made two Queensland teams in the one year.

After a strong performance in showjumping, Bradfield is now part of the Queensland open mounted games team which will compete in the nationals at the Caboolture Showgrounds on August 2-6.

The Warwick Hack and Pony Club member has represented Queensland at four nationals in showjumping but the competition at Caboolture will be her first in mounted games.

Riders from all states will have an equal chance in the nationals as state representatives will be allocated a different horse for each of the 20 events.

"There is a chance I may have my own horse for one event," Bradfield said.

Mounted games is a sport with many varied activities including tent pegging, vaulting and sporting events with a lot of hand and eye co-ordination.

"You must have good vaulting skills to get off and on the horse quickly," Bradfield said.

Coach Wendy Morrish, of Warwick, will guide a state team for the first time and said she expected the team to do exceptionally well.

"They have put in the hard yards with training camps for the past two months in Warwick, Oakey and Kilcoy. Our final camp will be at Woombye near Caboolture on July 26-27," she said.

Alycia Kuhnert is manager and the team also includes Yasmin Heather (Gold Coast), Bonnie Morris (Kilcoy), Dakota Brown (North Brisbane) and Mel Kuhnert (Highfields).

Brown is originally from Central Queensland but is now part of Woodford Pony Club.
