Calrossy’s Isobelle Bourke and Sophie Maynes were among the winners at last week's Inter-Schools Horse Extravaganza at Tamworth’s Australian Equine Livestock and Events Centre.
The pair combined to win the working horse challenge, which was one of a range of different horse disciplines the event catered for.
There was also sporting, a one-day event, showjumping, dressage, hacking, a gymkhana and polocrosse.
Introduced this year, the latter was taken out by the New England Girls School team.
It’s the third year the event has been run and drew competitors from primary and secondary schools from all over NSW and Queensland, Inter-School Sports president Leah Maynes said.
“We had 500 competitors for a 20 percent increase on last year,” Maynes said.
