Over the last week one of our Year 6 students, Marcel has been competing in the Equestrian section of the National Special Olympics in Adelaide. Marcel was one of just four riders selected to represent Victoria in this event despite only riding for the first time just over a year ago. Even though Marcel was unable to take Sasha, the horse he normally rides here on the Bellarine, he won a Gold in pole bending and the flag race, two Silvers in working trial and English equitation and a Bronze medal in dressage. This is an incredibly impressive performance that rewards the dedication and confidence Marcel has shown since taking up the sport. As a result of his achievements in Adelaide, he is in line for selection at the International Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi next year.
