Every young girl’s dream: Watch as the young women of NEGS demonstrate why they are leading the way in creating an exceptional culture of equine excellence.
A huge "Congratulations to Year 12 student, Jaimie McElroy and her horse Hh Hawke who were recently named 3rd, in the Junior Horse & Rider in the Eventing NSW Leaderboard for 2018 which featured in the Eventing NSW magazine. We are extremely proud of the successes that Jaimie has had whilst here at NEGS and we wish her the very best for the future. #negsmorethanaschool #negsequestrian #eventing #equestrian #playlikeanegsgirl Eventing NSW
The New England Girls School is on a mission to build itself a reputation as one of the top equine schools in the country.

NEGS Equestrian goes International
For the first time in NEGS’ history, high-performance riders from the school will head to Malaysia having been selected to take part in one of the most significant events on the equestrian sports calendar.
Under the skilled guidance of NEGS Equestrian’s Head of Department and former Olympian Mr. Imtiaz Anees, the school’s profile has been lifted both nationally and internationally, and this latest event will cement NEGS’ reputation as a global competitor in the dressage and showjumping arena as they compete at the Malaysian National Horse Show.
International exposure has been high on Imtiaz’s agenda since commencing at NEGS in 2016, and recent study tours to the United States and New Zealand have proved a drawcard for students thanks to his Olympic connections and extensive network within the equine world.
The NEGS Equestrian High-Performance Squad consists of seventeen students skilled in eventing, dressage or show jumping. Currently, the squad members compete throughout NSW, Queensland, and Victoria and from July 25th, eight girls can also add Malaysia to the list.
The process will be slightly unusual Imtiaz says, “because the girls will be riding on borrowed horses when in Malaysia, the selection process will involve each student riding unfamiliar horses and demonstrating their skills in a show jumping round and a dressage test. The process aims to see how students handle strange horses and confirm they can do so under pressure."
"It's an incredible opportunity for NEGS to represented on the international stage and the realisation of several years of planning and preparation. I truly believe that NEGS will not only be the best equestrian school in the country but also the world", Imtiaz concludes.

NEGS took a big team of eventers to Tamworth ODE last weekend!
We had riders in every class!
Jaimie McElroy had a brilliant ride in the CNC2*. She did a super show jump round with an unlucky two rails and a speedy cross country. She came home with a 5th in the open.
Lucy Ramsay did an exceptional job in the CNC1*. Once again, she was the highest placed junior and only added one rail to her dressage score. This is a real credit to Lucy and her commitment to the sport!
Sarah Wyatt and Isabella Arabejo had great riders in the EVA105 to finish 5th and 7th in the Junior.
Ashley Randle, Ellen Archer and Cilla Clonan rode superbly in the EVA95. They finished 2nd, 4th and 15th.
Tilly McCarroll had a brilliant time on her new horse! They managed to take the win in the Open Junior EVA80. Jaimie McElroy, Holly Coulthard, Charlotte Kingham, Ashley Randle and Anna Jarvis were all close behind in 4th, 7th, 8th, 11th and 13th.
In the Amateur Junior EVA 80 Katie Hancock did brilliantly to finish 2nd. Jess Bull wasn’t far behind in 7th place as well as Elise Payne in 8th. Ash Lowe did a great job but had an unlucky few rails.
Cass Drummond did a great job on her new mount. They put in a solid dressage test and unfortunately missed a jump on cross country.
Matilda Hall was unlucky to have an equipment malfunction, leading to elimination.
In the EVA60, Jess Bull, Sahvanah Hunt-Falkiner and Caitlin Barber all had a brilliant run. They finished 11th, 13th and 15th.
Congratulation to all the girls on their efforts!
Imti thoroughly enjoyed the event with 20 girls competing. The team spirit and camaraderie that all the girls showed was excellent. They were supportive to one another and had great manners at the event, making it a very enjoyable competition.
The countdown is on with only 9 days until North West Equestrian Expo!

Looking forward to see you all soon.
Today is a day to rejoice! Good things happen to good people..
Five years ago I was touched by an amazing family, THE BOHANNONS.
Kate came to me as a special gift. What was even more special were her children, all of different ages and disabilities. She had instilled one thing in all of them, love; that it’s better to give than to receive. She said her daughter Sarah would like to work with me. Sarah didn’t have any experience but was a hard working girl. I took this family on board at Springtown stables and have never looked back since. They have taught me more about life than I have learnt about horses or what i could teach them about horses.
Every day, they came in to work with a smile helping each other; and in the five years they never once complained, or were late, or didn’t carry out what was required for the horses.
Kate was the rock. She kept them all together as a family, juggling a job, teaching riding on the weekends, running a home, and an endless list of voluntary work she did for her church. She is a real life Wonder Woman, always smiling, and so grateful to God for what she has and for her the children.
With time life brought upon her many challenges & stress, but she never once shared them or bestowed them on others. Instead took it in her stride and dealt with it, never giving in and always smiling, until one day she was told she had cancer.
I couldn’t understand why this would happen to good people who live their lives for others, who give unconditionally and are placed on this earth as God’s messengers. But God allows things to happen for His reasons, whether or not we understand them. Often things happen to us that we simply cannot comprehend. However, instead of doubting we need to trust.
It is true, Kate had surgery last week and was told they got rid of all the cancer. Why was this obstacle placed in a life so undeserving, we’d never know. Everything happens for a reason but it isn’t for us to question. Have faith, be good, do good and help others. Always be grateful for life’s simple miracles. Life is too short, so celebrate it!
Always remember that giving — far greater than receiving — is a surprisingly potent force whose impact reverberates across an entire lifetime, nourishing health and happiness in astonishing ways. That's why Good Things Happen to Good People.
Thank you Kate, for all you do for me, the horses and Springtown!! You are truely a special person.
Would you agree :-)
After an intense two weeks of teaching lessons and clinics in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina, thks to Julie, Jan, Louise,Cary, Denise, Melanie and Tracie for putting it all together.(I know keeps an Army to keep me on track) It was a very hectic scheduled only possible with your help. On my way to India, i stopped in England to train with Diana. No rest for the wicked up at 6 am and she whipped me into shape. I have attached a short clipping of my Dressage lesson, thought all my students would enjoying watching me get shouted at for a change! Will send the jumping lesson later. Always trying to improve and be a better rider!! So i can shout at you even more!

Springtown Stables would like to send condolences to the family of Cary Thorpe. Cary was a very special friend, student and our first boarder. She was an excellent horsewoman, an amazing athlete and such a joy to be around. We enjoyed many great moments together including several riding trips all over the US. She was a competitive tennis player and took a special interest in Zameer's tennis achievement and wanted to play with him.
Unfortunately Cancer got the better of her and she passed away leaving behind two lovely children.
Cary you are very dear to us all! We pray for her family and ask that you send your positive thoughts towards them to help them get through this incredibly tough time.
This has been the longest since i have posted anything on my page. But as some of you know, it has been a world wind. I have moved to India, to manage Asia's biggest thoroughbred farm. A very challenging job, except for missing riding, I love it. We have a total of 400 horses! The farm website is www.poonawallagroup.com
Masume and I have a lovely place and have settled into our new home. So you are all welcome to visit. The farm is in Pune, a town in the mountains about 3 hrs from Bombay. Zameer has started school, excited that he has to wear a tie and blazer to school. He has made some friends and is enrolled in two tennis academies.

[02/05/14] Sorry for the late update but I have been on the road. I was asked to teach a clinic at the Mid South Dressage Academy in Memphis. I have to say it was one of the nicest facilities I have taught at in a very long time. A beautiful Indoor arena with felt footing and 15 rooms for students and clinicians to stay above the barn. The best part of teaching in the south, is you never go hungry. The mothers cooked up a storm every night. But I do have to say the best meal was cooked by a father!!!! Vonna did a wonderful job organizing it and the kids were extra special. of course I couldn't stop there, so on my way back which was another 5 hrs away I stopped in Madison Al and taught on Monday my usually crew and caught up with my old friends.
Nothing like coming from a very relaxing warm holiday to hitting the ground running and freezing!!!!!
Just got back from India and was invited by Terrie Pierce to do a clinic at her lovely farm in Milton florida on Saturday. Full day of teaching, a super group of enthusiastic ladies. Thank you Terrie for inviting me and looking after me so well. Then met up with some friends and students in pensacola to watch the Indoor GrandPrix which finished at 10pm. The next day Julie Catone at rustic trail stables in Milton had me teaching from 7.30 am to 6 pm. Yes no lunch break, but I can only do that at Julie's as all the students are such a delight. I don't get tired, as they all ride beautifully and our matched so well with their horses. Was a wonderful day teaching. Then drove 5 hrs back home, reached at midnight and left the next morning at 6 am to teach the UGA EVENT TEAM. I must say they are a wonderful bunch of young girls. So refreshing under the guidance of kay Amann and Jorgia Millar the program has really grown and I enjoy supporting such a team. Thank you all for making my three days go so smoothly. Only possible with your coordination and time and effort. Wish you all the best for your 2014 competition season!
