Local horse-riding enthusiasts will be given the opportunity to learn from Olympian Rebel Morrow when she visits Bundaberg in March.
Sharon Marshall and Anne-Marie Sorensen have organised Rebel’s visit to the region, and they expect it to be a popular event with local horse riders.
Sharon said Rebel was an internationally recognised equestrian professional, and this was a great opportunity for the horse riders of Bundaberg to have a lesson with someone of her calibre.
“Rebel has been coaching for more than 25 years and she can cater for all skill levels, from beginners right through to advanced riders,” she said.
“Rebel’s expertise in training young horses will benefit many riders of Bundaberg.
“It is great to have such an experienced coach come to the region.”
Anne-Marie said it was the Athens Olympics that propelled Rebel onto the international stage and, together with her mount Oakley Groover, she finished 11th and she was the highest placed Australian in eventing.
She said Rebel had worked with the likes of Olympian Shane Rose and is now relocating back to Queensland.
Rebel is an EFA NCAS level 2 eventing specialist, who has coached and competed all over Australia, in New Zealand, China and the United States of America.
Anne-Marie, 65, said she had ridden horses all her life, and she had known Rebel for a long time and after a few calls they had arranged her visit to the Bundaberg Region.
The clinic with Rebel is sponsored by Boylans Produce and will be held in the indoor arena at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct on 13 March.
