Aussies Jumping Their Way Up The Olympic Ladder

Australia’s Olympic Equestrian Team

The Australian Equestrian Team are helping Australia climb their way up the olympic ladder when Australia got 3rd in the team equestrian.

 First off, we had Stuart Tinney with his pure Grey horse. He knocked over 3, but made a come back and jumped over 3.

Next, we had Sam Griffiths with his hazel horse. Sam’s performance was outstanding as he managed to not only knock over no barriers, but jumped all 8!

Last, but not least, we had Christopher Burton, with his  dark brown horse. Christopher did knock over 2 barriers, but then jumped 7 instead.

Overall, this was a great start to the team equestrian and the team was terrific.
