The first records of equestrian at LN appear in the 1930's, when horse riding was introduced as an elective class. Each year, a visiting teacher would be arranged to teach a small group of students how to ride. To this day, many of our students shine at equestrian events including the Northwest Equestrian Expo held at Coonabarabran held in the June school holidays.

What do you remember about horse riding at Loreto? Did you or a friend ever compete in equestrian events or sign up to the elective class?
