DENMARK WA College of Agriculture student Olivia Miller spent the first week of her school holidays in Sydney to represent Western Australia at the 2019 National Inter-school Equestrian Championship.

Miller and her horse Endeavour TL competed against the best-performed junior combinations from across the country at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre.

Miller’s selection for the national event comes following wins at the State Interschool Equestrian Festival held in April this year, where she won both the Preliminary and Novice class Championships.

College Principal Kevin Osborne said that the college’s equine program was attractive for students who are seeking to achieve industry competencies in a wide range of equine-based subjects.

Miller said she made the decision to attend the college to undertake the Certificate II Equine studies at the college’s new equestrian centre whilst also completing the challenging Year 12 ATAR program.

At the time of publication Miller was finishing off competing.

Weekender readers will have a full report of how she finished up next week.
