The St Mary’s equestrian team participated in the 1st qualifier for the SANESA inter-schools on the weekend of 2 and 3 February at Eaton Farm in Kyalami. Over the two days, the riders and their horses competed in a variety of disciplines, achieving excellent results. We had a couple of riders who had to scratch owing to horse issues and there was also the excitement of the matric dance the same weekend.
