Australia: Emma continues on her winning ways

Emma Smith has continued to
compete extremely well
and has recently completed
her first ‘100 miler’ -
the 160kms Horseland NSW
State Championships - riding
Kintamani Mistral.

Emma has brought the mare Kintamani Silver Belle through the novice division where they can only do a minimum of 6 hrs, and once they have completed their 3 x 80kms rides in that division, they gain their ‘yellow log book’ and are able to compete faster.

In their first ride out of the novice classification, they won the Coolamon Junior section in 5.32 and backed up at the Zone Two Championships two weeks later, covering the 110kms in 7.52, a good time for that distance to win again and gain Best Conditioned horse as well.

Emma is next entered in the Shahzada 400kms Marathon ride at St Albans near Wisemans Ferry in ten days time riding Kintamani Silver Motif, a gelding owned by Erika Lindsay.

This horse has covered the distance before and Emma is looking forward to the challenge.

Emma is entered 3 weeks later in the Tom Quilty Gold Cup National Championships at Nanango in Queensland - a distance once again of 160kms.

Emma has become a valuable team member and very reliable, embracing a sport she has only begun competing in this year under the guidance of Alan Lindsay who has completed most of the rides with her.

Alan also works in Grenfell at the Weddin Shire on occasions.
