2016 SRSJC Organising Committee

SRSJC Chair Suzanne McGill announced new committee members Matilda O’Connor and Junior Member Grace Fuchsbichler to this year’s SRSJC organising body. “It’s wonderful having Matilda fills the spot opened by the recent sabbatical request by Jessamy Walsh while she completes her nursing studies,” said Suzanne. “Adding Grace to the newly formed position of Junior Committee Member and having younger senior members like Matilda means that we’re grooming the next generation of showjumping organisers from an early point so that they’re ready to take over when the time is right.”

“Our committee members, who include riders, coaches and administrators, bring a broad wealth of experiences from within and outside the equestrian industry that really contribute to our events,” commented Suzanne, who – along with Les Bunning and Gail Hellier – is a founding member of the club, which was launched in 2008.

Wow, what a way to kick off our first event of the year! Our riders and their supporters stayed positive, persevered in the heat and battled extensive road closures to make it a super show with great jumping and exciting new partnerships! There’s so much to look forward to this year…

Kevin Tully’s courses rode beautifully on Brookleigh’s fabulous indoor surface. Huge thanks to our competitors, their helpers, our officials, club helpers and committee members and to our wonderful sponsors whose generous support helps us run our shows and reward our riders.
