Meet the Club’s Committee:

Ann Dodd


Hi …. I have been involved in the club since moving to the area for the last 18 years, and have also been a part of clubs in the Adelaide Hills. I am a G level judge and President of our club for the last year. Having just retired my Advanced competition mare, I am looking forward to getting out with my new little black boy!! We have a great committee and I look forward to a successful year ahead.

Lucie Hill

Vice President

Originally from Mt Gambier, I moved back to the area 3 years ago after being away for the past 10 years in QLD/VIC riding and coaching. My current horse you will see me riding is named Babe and we are expecting a foal by embryo transfer) in the next month which I hope will be my future competing horse. I love being a part of a supportive and well-run club, looking forward to another year at MSEDC.

Hi, moved to Wirrega near Bordertown 20 years ago from Inman Valley and have four daughters and four beautiful grandies. I have not done a lot of riding over the years, mainly riding when I was younger, going to Goolwa Pony Club. Seven years ago, I started riding again after a big break. In April, bought a new horse and look forward to competing with her next vear. I joined the MSEDC five years ago and look forward to another year on the committee

Carmen Bliss

Committee Member

I’ve lived in the limestone coast for most of my life, riding as an eventer in my younger years. I then had a big 20 year gap from riding and travelled, had two children.  I have rediscovered my love of horses when my 6yo daughter started riding. Currently I am riding my daughter’s GRP pony and a young Morgan. Dressage is my main focus now – eventing too dangerous for this old body! I am excited to be supporting a very well run club and hope to be out competing next year!

Nick Lewis

Hi, l’ve been riding since a child after nagging my parents for a pony. Over the years I have done some endurance riding, played polocrosse for about 10 years, hunted & was the master for a number of years. I have been riding dressage now for a few years & currently ride the trusty steed Gary.

Emma Gallagher

Hi, I’m Emma I have been riding horses since was 6 years old. I moved to Naracoorte 5 years ago from the Gold Coast with my family and horse Rogue who I owned for 10 years! I’ve spent most of my riding career showlumping but stopped when I reared koone and started dressage with my thoroughbred Fox from a local trainer 4 years ago. I look forward to the year ahead on the committee.
