LOCAL para-equestrian Natalie Mel-
lors was awarded two gold medals at the
International Hope Cup in Taiwan last
The 33-year-old told The Bunyip her per-
formance in the Grade 1A 1B 2 novice test
was her best ever.
"My first competition went really well and
I felt like I had done a really good job," she
"They started calling up from sixth place
and when they said fourth place I thought
'wow, I'm in the top three'... and then they
announced the second-placed person and
that's when I realised I had won.
"I knew in myself the accomplishment I
had made and then to get first was just icing
on the cake."
Prior to the competition, Mellors only had
two 30-minute practises on her borrowed
horse, Canon, before the competition on
Before heading to Taiwan, Mellors' coach,
Rachel Vincent, acknowledged that her regu-
lar horse, Barry, was very sensitive and that
having a borrowed horse would be an asset
to her chances.
Mellors is proud of her achievements in
her first international competition and now
has her sights set on the World Equestrian
"I absolutely enjoyed the whole competi-
tion and I cannot wait to see where it takes
me next time," she said.
"I could not have asked for better people to
compete with and against.
"Thank you to all the people and business-
es that helped me get over there and achieve
Natalie Mellors was overjoyed to achieve two
rst places in her debut representing Australia in
an international dressage competition.

last week's loss to record a strong
113-90 win over Freeling.
Tanunda won three of its four
rinks on the day, with the only
loss coming from Tony Edwards
who was bettered by Freeling's
Trevor Heinjus in a tight 23-26
The other matches were not
as close, with Peter Baverstock,
Tim Liersch and Bradley Pech
all recording strong wins.
Angaston prevailed 99-76 over
Eudunda, with Matt Short's 31-
14 over Greg Prior playing a big
part in the result.
