Beijing Olympian Katie Laurie showed all her class in winning the NSW State Indoor Showjumping Championships senior title at AELEC on the weekend.
The New Zealand native, who now resides in Australia, was a delight to watch in action North and North West Showjumping committee member Jane Kibble said.
“She was a joy to watch over the fence, just poetry in motion,” Kibble said.
The four day event attracted showjumpers from all over the country, as well as a couple of international riders currently out in Australia.
Sydney’s Jessica Tripp was crowned the NSW indoor young rider champion, while Queensland’s Maleah Lang-McMahon won the junior title and Nathan Carswell (Central Coast) the amateur.
The championships also incorporated the Sue Alden Memorial Grand Prix, which was won by Condobolin’s Madeline Sinderberry.
“She’s been a successful competitor over the last few years and picked up a few state titles,” Kibble said.
