WARWICK showjumper Robert Goodwin will compete on an imported horse in this year's circuit in Australia.

Goodwin and girlfriend Christy Gripske travelled to Europe last year where she bought a seven-year-old Warmblood stallion named Competition.

Both will compete on Competition with Goodwin to start the year on the stallion.

"We plan to change his name from Competition but haven't done it yet," Goodwin said.

Goodwin and his younger brother David have both made long lists for the Olympics in showjumping.

Last year Robert lived at Woodford to assist his grandparents on their property and has now moved to Dayboro.

This year, he and Gripske will have 20 horses in work to compete on the circuit, including three high level horses, Competition, Warrego Sandon and Galaxy Park Calypso.

Goodwin is a past annual Daily News/Warwick Credit Union Sports Star of the Year and will attend the 20th anniversary sports star dinner on March 9 at the Warwick RSL if showjumping commitments permit.
