A strong North Island Young Rider team has been selected to contest the first leg of the York Corporation Team Challenge to be held at the South Island Championships 25-27 January at McLeans Island NEC.

Becki Williamson (Waitemata), Willa Aitken (Nth Hawke’s Bay) and Emma Harding (Wellington) will compete on loan horses at Levels 2,3 & 4. The SI Challengers will be selected from equivalent grades of horses at the close of entries for the event. This will all make for another very exciting annual  interisland challenge. Thank you to the generous owners, Robert Kofoed (First Choice), Joy White (Astek Gangstar Girl) & Mette Neilsen (Geneva Star). SI leg Challenge organiser Mel Bruce provides a reserve horse. 
Round 2 will be held at the Equestrian Entries Under 25 Champs in April where the SI team will ride loan horses.
