Lyndal Oatley’s dream comes true

At the Sydney Olympics in 2000 Lyndal watched Kristy ride for the Australian team and started following her own dream of one day competing for Australia at an Olympics.  Now her dream is coming true.  She has done an unbelievable and amazing job to achieve that in such a short time, and with a horse (Sandro Boy) who she has trained to Grand Prix level so quickly.

Here she is talking about the journey up to now, and the experience of her first Olympics.

Ride Well Lyndal, Mary and Kristy!

We are so proud of you all and will be glued to the screens tonight cheering you all on.
