Interschool equestrian continues to grow and strengthen each year. The equestrian calendar began on February 15 and will not end until late October. The term break gave many of us time to rest and prepare for another busy term riding for ACK.

The Assumption College equestrian team came third. Braemar took out the shield. Geelong Grammar was equal second with Assumption College. On count back, Assumption College was awarded third place.
