Olivia Inglis Eventing Scholarship

Friday, 11th March 2016

A scholarship for young Eventing riders has been established in memory of Olivia Inglis. The announcement was made on Wednesday night at the Equestrian New South Wales annual awards dinner. The 'Olivia Inglis Eventing Scholarship' will provide emerging riders with funding to support their training and competition, with full details to be released soon. The Scone Horse Trials Organising Committee initiated the fundraising by donating the remainder of prize money from 2016 March event for the memorial fund scholarship. Speaking at the Awards Night, Blair Richardson, President of Scone Horse Trials said: "We are delighted that Equestrian NSW in conjunction with the Australian Sports Foundation will administer this fund. The scholarship will be awarded at the Equestrian NSW Annual Awards held in March each year, to help young riders in the sport of Eventing. These riders can use the funding to obtain extra lessons, or schooling, to help them in their career over the coming years." Blair said he hoped the fund would achieve the following four purposes:

  • Honour an incredible and all too short life
  • Help ease the pain we are all feeling
  • Ensure something good comes from this tragedy, &
  • Produce a new generation of Australian Olympians
