Last weekend as part of the composite team of riders from Echuca College and Ballarat Grammar Lucy Nelson in Year 7 and her team were awarded first place at the North Eastern Equestrian Interschools Championships in Tatura.

Also in the last school holidays Lucy and her pony George spent 5 days at the Equestrian Victoria Interschool State Championships competing among 476 riders from 173 schools. Lucy achieved an admirable 4th place in her division in the Secondary Dressage Preliminary Championship, narrowly missing the ride off for the National event. She also represented Moama Anglican Grammar in the Handymount competition receiving another 4th place and finished in the top ten in her novelties and show horse classes.
