It's an extravaganza

THE sixth annual The SCOTS PGC College Equestrian Extravaganza will be held at the Warwick Showgrounds this weekend.

There are 120 nominations from 20 schools in the south-east, Sunshine Coast, western Queensland and northern New South Wales areas.

College head of equestrian Richard King said the event was going from strength to strength each year.

“The extravaganza is a qualifier for the Queensland Inter-School State Championships,” King said.

“There is showjumping, combined training (dressage and showjumping), showman and showhorse, including the hunter classes which are included in the schedule for the first time.”

Competition is from 8am to 4pm tomorrow and Sunday, and spectators are welcome. There is no admission charge.

King said 30 students from Scots PGC, boarding and day students, would be competing.

“Fifteen judges will be involved over the course of the weekend from the Darling Downs and south-east Queensland areas,” King said.

“The Scots PGC College is also pleased to receive support from the members of the Warwick Work Camp who assist in all aspect of the competition from the canteen to scoring.”

State championships will be held at Morgan Park during the forthcoming school holidays.
