ATTENTION: Friends, Fans & Followers ... I received a lovely thank you from Para NSW Group today for photographing them at Equifest 2017, see below.
EQUIFEST 2017 was a huge hit for PE NSW. PE NSW riders did one 30 minute demonstration on the Friday and two on the Saturday. The riders all entered the arena wile an announcer introduced each rider then read out an informative speech about PE Dressage the disabilities our riders face and some Australian Paralympic history. The 4 grades present then split into their grades and each grade had a tailor made, 5 minute piece of music to ride to and demonstrate their grades movements, each grade did a super job on their displays and it was lovely to see the sport and its riders receiving such great support and recognition they deserve. A huge thank you to MITAVITE who sponsored the riders and for giving them to opportunity to be a part of this wonderful event and for also hosting the PE NSW raffle in their trade stand, which also was huge success and a large amount of funds were raised to support our NSW riders development. Another huge thank you to all riders, helpers and carers involved in the demonstration, all your efforts went above and beyond to make this PE demonstration a success. Thank you to everyone involved who walked around selling raffle tickets over the 4 days for our PE raffle and Thank you to all the business houses and people who kindly donated such a great array of super prizes for the raffle, without such kind donations our raffle would not have been such a success. Big Thanks to Amylie Hines for all your endless help in gathering donations for our raffle and lastly, another huge Thank you to Ian Vaughan Photography for donating all the riders the pic's you took of Fridays demonstration and A&H Photography for photographing Saturdays demonstration. PE in NSW has a very bright and supportive future ahead.
