Providing a safe and well organised environment for primary and secondary school students to pursue their equestrian sport endeavours
BIS Series Announcement
30 October 2019
Over the last 15 years the Barwon Interschool Series has been providing opportunities for young equestrians to represent their school in the Barwon region.
During that time, the Barwon Interschool Series grew from four small competitions to the huge range of high quality events we enjoyed during the past seasons.
Running the series takes significantly more time to coordinate and manage than our current group is able to commit and on that basis we will not be running a series in 2020.
Thank you to all the riders, supporters and sponsors who have been part of the series over the years.
We wish all riders good luck for the coming year.
