Thank you to all who put themselves forward to be considered for riding and supervisory roles and for attending the selection events. Plus, an extra-special thank you to all parents of our younger riders.
We are excited for this team to have the opportunity to take on the world’s best up-and-coming tentpeggers in a fantastic destination. The team will meet for training days and a sports psychology session over the winter months before they travel.
We wish the team the very best of luck as they prepare for this new event and will keep you informed of their progress leading up to their trip, and when they are out in Oman.
