Since the beginning of the school's first semester, Giltrap Volkswagen has become a sponsor of the Strathallan Equestrian Team with a year full of Ribbon Days, Show Hunter & Show Jumping, Eventing and Dessage competitions on the way.
As a key sponsor of the team, Giltrap Volkswagen are inventing a large sum of money in their riders to provide FREE coaching and opportunities to make sure we continue to succeed at the top level and to develop more young riders for the future.
This initiative wwas brought about by one of the parents and are most grateful for their assistance.
Volkswagen are theirselves respective sponsors of Olympics and as part of the 2016 Rio campaign. Sir Mark Todd recently took part in a video shoot, organised by the NZ Olympic Committee. This took place at a wonderful location- The picturesque arena belonging to Annie's Mum, Monica!
The Strathallan Equestrian team were invited along to watch the shoot and to everone's delight, Sir Mark not only chatted to the kids and answered their questions, he also rode Annie's lovely horse, Blake and gave some wonderful tiding tips (everyone riding without stirrups now - if it's good enough for Sir Mark, it must be good enough for the rest of us?!!).
What a fantastic start to the year!
