Ella and her horses MP Too EZE and Vitoria Royal Mint have had many successful events lately.
Ella is soon to be 12 and has been riding since she was able to sit up. Ella has grown up through pony club and loves everything about it. Ella started showing her pony 4 years ago and absolutely loves it. Her small show hunter Galloway Costa (Vitoria Royal Mint) competed at Canberra and Sydney Royal this year with great success.

Liam Mackenzie-Smith

Liam has been around horses from the get go.  At the age of 4 yrs he went along to his first competition, a hack show down in Sydney with his pony “Little” coming home with Champion handler & rider in an open age group.  Now 10 yrs old he has since found a love of jumping, in particular over cross country fences! Liam has won Championships in Showjumping (Pony Club) attending his first NSW Pony Club state champs in 2018 in dressage, show horse and combined training, placing in each discipline.  Liam recently competed at his first Interschool NSW state championships at SIEC in July 2018 with both of his ponies Charlie and Wally, with a 1st place in the 45cm combined training and second place 60cm combined training respectively also placing 5th in the Working Hunter on Wally.  As a result Liam was selected to represent NSW on both ponies at the Marcus Oldham Australian Interschool Championships in Werribee, Melbourne  October 2018 . Liam went on to place on Charlie and Wally in the combined training and working hunter. Liam can’t wait to take on his next cross country course and we look forward to supporting and encouraging him in his future endeavours for 2019 and beyond.
