Australia: Taking on the (horse) world

Jennifer Annetts and Churinga Goldfire or one of Jennifer’s other endurance horses are a common sight riding along Red Range and Glen Legh Roads in the later afternoons and weekends, but this is no casual canter.

Jennifer has been selected in the five-rider team to represent Australia in the endurance event at the World Equestrian Games to be held in Normandy, France in August, and she is in training to optimise her performance in the gruelling 160 kilometre one-day event.

The World Equestrian Games is the largest equestrian event in the world, celebrated every four years (alternating with the Olympic Games). Endurance is one of eight equestrian disciplines contested.

Jennifer was involved in Glen Innes Pony Club as a youngster but has gone on to specialise in endurance events, taking her (and her support crew including mum Trish) all over Australia. Endurance rides may vary from 80 to 160 kilometres over one day, and there are marathon rides of two days of 100km rides and the annual Shazada event of 80km on each of five consecutive days...

Jenny finished her first 160km event the day after her thirteenth birthday.

Since that time she has excelled in competitions, winning the Victorian State Championship in 2011, and the NSW State Championship in 2012 and 2013...

TOOWOOMBA veterinarian Sasha Laws-King could use her professional knowledge for a different purpose in late August when she rides a French horse in the World Equestrian Games in France.

The former national youth representative will ride at open at the world championships for the first time after qualifying for the 160km endurance event on French horse Qacima Du Sauveterre.
