Such a great event that Sydney Eventing puts on for all of us, thank you to the organisers and volunteers who make events like this happen. Thank you also to Horseland for sponsoring the EvA80 Jnr B class and providing me with a Kool Coat cotton rug!

Well done to Sydney Eventing’s committee for managing huge numbers, the rain and for putting on a great show…so much work behind the scenes for us riders to enjoy! -Natalie Blundell

Thank you to the wonderful committee of Sydney Eventing for looking after me so well again this weekend. The cross country ran smoothly and well thanks to the TD’s, controller, marshal and all of the volunteers. Mr Rose and his scrumptious roast pork dinner on Saturday night -I was very spoilt!! Congratulations to all of the winners and placegetters -Karen Bretherton

Without volunteers it would be impossible for the event to go ahead, people don’t see how much work Lisa Green puts in behind the scenes and as a rider I want to thank you for making it possible for us to compete. Thank you to the committee as well for putting together such a well run event – Kristabella Jam

Loved the Pre-Novice course out at SIEC, and was really pleased to see some new fences in the mix. The course was incredibly well kept and my horse had a sensational time galloping around the track. A big thanks to the committee for once again putting on one of the best calendar events of the year for eventing – Sarah Hudson

Thank you for a fantastic competition, such a great way to kick off the year – Simone Monaghan

We had a ball!! Thank you, great events! – Claire Earle

Loved it! Had two first timers in the intro. The cross country course was a great start for the year, I loved that there were two water jumps and the first was only a compulsory flag. The warm up for show jumping was much more organised than last year but still needs some improving. The lady at warm up was much more organised and in control but riders were still heading down for their round too early – Stevie-Jade Bianca Shakoff

I was proud to be the Volunteer Co-ordinator of such a great event at a world class venue, working with super people and getting a quick snippet of my daughter mowing around her first 1* track – Lisa Green

Thanks for looking after us again, we had a great time! – Jenny McIntosh, Freerein Equestrian

I wasn’t there for long on Saturday but saw some amazing riders and true dedication to the sport. -Shane Hood

Thank you to Sandy and Fiona for the new courses which were fantastic! I heard so many people complimenting them as I rode to and from cross country – Georgie Lorson
