Testimonials:

Chloe Blair and family

Rising equestrian star Chloe Blair believes West Moreton Anglican College provides the vital support for her Olympic dream. Chloe, 7, is a Queensland Interschool Show Horse champion, and with her eight-year-old pony Wyann Safari (Si), won bronze in Show Horse (6-9 years) at the Grand National Championships at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre in March.

“I really like it when I’m successful because it’s exciting to win ribbons, Si feels good about himself when we do a really good job together. There is lots of nice and kind people at WestMAC and my teacher has really helped me, she gives me any work I miss. I was quite young when I was competing in my first Queensland Interschool Championships last year (in Toowoomba) and many older students came and cheered us (younger students) on. It made me feel really supported. I’m proud to ride for the school.’’

The Year 2 student trains every day and dreams of representing Australia in Dressage at the Olympics. Proud mum Louisa Dossetor chose WestMAC specifically because the College was renowned for its support of equestrian sports. “WestMAC understands and accommodates the commitment required by equestrian. Chloe has a dream and to have a school who supports her to pursue her dream makes the journey easier.’’

David Waller

David Waller, 2012 Australian Equestrian vaulting champion and past WestMAC student, attended WestMAC from 2004-2008. “WestMAC gave me the structure and discipline which helped me achieve 17th position in vaulting at the 2014 World Games in France. All my teachers cared and were passionate. WestMAC put me in the right mindset, so I was ready for the outside world. If I didn’t have WestMAC I wouldn’t be where I am today. My daughter Keelie, five, attends Prep. The day Keelie was born, I knew I wanted to send her to WestMAC so she can follow everything she wants to do especially with all the extra-curricular programs the College has to offer,’’

Recently, David has spent four years as a star and trainer of the Australian Outback Spectacular show on The Gold Coast.
