Now that things have started to settle I thought I would take the opportunity to pass on my sincere appreciation to everyone who assisted in the successful running of this wonderful event. So many people got behind our small committee and did their bit to promote Tasmania as one of the up and coming thriving endurance riding States in this country. There are in fact too many to mention, you all know who you are and what you have done to help and I thank you wholeheartedly.
As a riding community, we should all be extremely proud of the success achieved by the entire Tasmanian contingent, from those who excelled at the front of the field, to those whose aim was a buckle even though it meant long hours in the saddle and careful tending of their tiring horses. Well done to all. To those who unfortunately did not achieve their goal, the Quilty will be back with us in a few years – aim to achieve that buckle next time.
I think some of the highlights of the event were the presentations and the dinner. To be able to present so many fit, keen and healthy horses after completing 160 kilometres the day before is a credit to the horsemanship being applied. The dinner was certainly the ‘best ever’ with everyone who attended enjoying great food, fantastic music, energetic dancing and lots of laughter.
I believe we have at last lain to rest the cloud which had been hanging over us from previous ill-fated events and anticipate that riders from all over Australia will next time flock to our State to participate in this wonderful iconic ride.
So, now it is over. Again, my thanks go to all those who have supported me in my endeavours as Ride Director over the past months and years.
