Teams have been announced for the Senior, Young Rider and Junior interstate competitions to be held as part of the Pryde’s EasiFeed Australian Jumping Championships at Boneo Park. This is an exciting and popular feature of the championships each year and we are looking forward to seeing the outcome of this challenge. Performances in each of the first and second (first round only) qualifying competitions of the Senior, Young Rider and Junior Championships will be used to determine the winning state in each category.
Congratulations to all those selected and the best of luck in the competitions.
Selected teams, as advised by Boneo Park are as follows:
NSW – Josh Collins and Cornel, Amber Fuller and Nopal Van Tallaert, Tom McDermott and Elegance De La Charmille and Amanda Madigan and Diamond B Vivienne (Reserve – Izabella Stone and Oaks Ventriloquist).
QLD – Mattea Davidson and Checkamour D, Olivia Hamood and Jane Fonda DVD, Sam Overton and Oaks Cassanova and Clem Smith and Oaks Conjuror (Reserve – Gemma Creighton and Dada Des Brimbelles Z).

The Senior Competition in 2021 was won by Queensland with three of the victorious four team members again being named in their team for this 2022. The only change is Mattea Davidson and Checkamour D replacing Billy Raymont and Black Jack IXE, one of the four combinations that represented Australia at the World Jumping Championships in Denmark in August.
