Two St Francis College pupils scooped several top places at the Homestead Equestrian Estate showing event recently.

Grade 5’s Samara Howell, riding Cadillac, was named Working Champion (child rider) and received two second-place rosettes, while Grade 6 pupil Molly Dalton, on her pony Laheeb, achieved excellent scores to attain second and third place rosettes.

The training show is part of the estate’s annual Homestead Trophy Challenge and involves several disciplines.

Former college pupil Coral-Jade Dippenaar, now at Woodridge College, was named Supreme Working Champion and achieved a full house of first places in her classes.
