Showjumping Legend There is much that could be said about Morris Clarke, but it can all be summed up in two words ‘Showjumping Legend’. Morris, from Mortlake in western Victoria, was certainly a champion showjumper in his day and is not only still competing successfully to this day, but has passed on his skills and knowledge to his children Tim and Kate who have both become exceptional jumpers in their own right. Morris was interested in horses as a young boy and started riding borrowed ponies around Mortlake before acquiring his own horse as a teenager and starting to make good

Such is his passion for the sport, that through all this Morris was determined to keep riding and is more involved than ever. Morris happily still competes up to 1.20m and he loves to watch Judy riding Dressage, where he has become a wonderful test caller. At shows he loves nothing more than assisting his extended family, especially his two grandchildren who are just starting to ride their ponies. Articles thanks to:

David Sheppard – bringing his skills (and his new puppy!) to the state titles There can be no doubt that one of the essential elements of a good show is the course design and the Victorian State Titles are very lucky to have one of the best in the business David Sheppard looking after things. David, a Level 3 FEI Designer brings with him, not only a great passion for the sport, but a long history of experience and involvement with jumping. David started out his involvement in jumping as a rider at pony club level, but was soon drawn to course designing mainly because he was intrigued by it and hardly anyone no one else was doing it! After moving to the Yarra Valley in the 1990’s, David joined Melbourne Showjumping Club and learnt Photo: Oz Shots.
