6 Wild Oats also generously sponsored the Intermediate I and Freestyle events which were taken out by Matthew Dowsley on Flavio and Brett Parbery on DP Weltmeiser. The NSW Institute of Sport were the sponsors for the Intermediate II. In this competition Luxor 118 ridden by Daniella Dierks was the winner. The Equestrian NSW Grand Prix was won by Daniella Dierks on Luxor 118. This impressive combination also won the Equestrian NSW Grand Prix Special. David Shoobridge on OO Seven won the Gow Gates Grand Prix Freestyle Championships. We always say we couldn’t do it without their help and it’s true, we couldn’t! Thank you to the sponsors for their generous and on-going support of this event. The most exciting aspect of the NSW Championships is that everyone is a winner. Just being there is the sign of excellence in our state in our sport of dressage. When you look at the results and actually see the marks, you realize just how competitive this event is and how thorough the commitment made by the riders to achieve and improve. In some instances, there is less than 1% between results. That can be just a moment’s inattention, a step out of balance, a tiny glitch and an opportunity lost. In this event everyone knows they have to be at their best which I believe pushes the riders and their horses to improve, take risks and be outstanding. In 2013 we look forward to seeing the same talented faces coming down the centreline and welcome the new blood throwing out the challenge.
