Sandy got her first pony at age 6 and by age 16 was eventing at state level.........
 
Sandy has competed at Advanced level very successfully for many years and was identified as a member of the NSW Institute of Sport Squad School in 2003.
 
Sandy has had several quality horses make the grade and a few that just may have gone much further.
 
The sport is physically and mentally tough on both horse and rider. There would not be one rider at this level of the sport that hasn't had some bad luck in their career and as they say "as the going gets tough, the tough get going".
 
This is what makes the sport so challenging yet so rewarding.
 
The thought of discovering a new talented horse or gifted young rider (or young at heart) is what keeps you going.

A horse by the name of Mr Mike influenced Sandy to take up eventing
