Lottie Jacobson, a 10-year-old Year Five student at St Laurence’s Primary School, Forbes, recently turned in a fine performance at the State Interschool Equestrian Championships, which were held at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre (SIEC) in Horsley Park. She gained a fourth place in the primaryschool division of the Combined Training, plus a second and fifth in her dressage tests. These results have qualified Lottie to represent NSW at the National Interschool Equestrian Championships, which will be held at SIEC from September 28 to October 3, when
more than 2000 school-based 5-18 year olds will gather for competition on the site that hosted the equestrian events for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Lottie lives with her proud parents, Nils and Sarah Jacobson, on a property at Garema, where she has room for her horse Dandy, known in competitive circles by the more formal title of Samson Fine and Dandy. Dandy is a 14 year old Arabian riding pony that Lottie has been riding for about three years. Lottie has been riding since she was four,
and has been competing for the past four to five years as a member of the Forbes Pony Club. The club will be celebrating its 50th anniversary later this year with a special dinner on November 7. Guest speaker, hopefully,
will be David Cameron, a former club member and current Australian show-jumping champion. For further information, please contact Sarah Jacobson on 0497 635 965 or Muz Francis on 0417 969 932.
