Hawthorne Sandy is Rose Ward’s horse. Rose has been riding competitively on Sandy for the Sydney Club in the Women’s competition, Mixed team and Open teams. Sandy can play any position. Her runs on the board, her agility, conformation, trainability and her turn of speed gives her that competitive edge. After a big year with the Sydney Club Sandy was bushed at Kyogle for a few months and has come back into work ready to showcase the Hawthorne Stud – Kent & Libby Wells, Boonah, Queensland.
Rose recently participated in a Scott Keogh Horsemanship clinic with the Sydney Club and has found Sandy very willing and responsive to the teaching of the clinic. With the prep-work put into Sandy, the Ward family are looking forward to seeing the lady player chosen to ride her at the World Cup in action.
