Scone Horses Trials hosted close to 470 entries at the annual Autumn One Day Event last weekend; now the largest ODE in NSW outside of Sydney. The countryside looked amazing as a result of recent rain and the weather over the two days was sunny, dry and warm. That set the stage perfectly for Phoebe White and Maverick (brown gelding trained by Serena) to take out the Preliminary section by only .2 margin from another local Michelle Carney.
In the top grades; an amazing result by Olympian Shane Rose; who secured victory in each CNC 1 , 2 and 3 STAR classes. An incredible athlete and strong rider; the trifecta should set up Shane for an spot in the Australian team this coming London Olympics. Well done all those helpers that made the day so spectacular.
