Hi, my name is Arabella Eagles. I’m a member of the Samford Golden Valley Pony Club and the Ferny Grove State High School equestrian team. Until December 2019 I had been competing with my pony Ruffles in formal and sporting gymkhana’s, mounted games, and dressage. In 2019 I travelled overseas with Pony Club Australia to a riding school in China, where I competed in and won their annual games’ competition. My new equine partner is a warmblood mare named Chance, together we compete in dressage and eventing.  We started competing in pony club and interschool events together this year before the 4 month break due to COVID-19. We have taken the break as an opportunity to compete in virtual competitions and receive feedback for improvements in our dressage. Some of our goals for 2021 include getting on the Interschool QLD State Team for Novice Dressage and EvA80 Eventing, receiving a place on the Pony Club State Dressage Team, and competing in the NSW State ODE and Dressage. To finish off this current year I aim to compete in interschool preliminary dressage, eventing, and combined training. Also, to hopefully compete in NSW State Dressage if interstate travel restrictions are lifted in time.
