Talented rider in national top 10

YOUNG Epsom equestrienne Montanna Maud has finished in the top 10 of her class at the prestigious Gallery Equine Grand National Championships in Sydney.

Competing in the junior rider under 12 years category, Montanna was awarded a rosette to mark her result.

The 10-year-old Bendigo Pony Club member was among the last riders standing at the March 27 event, surviving several cuts made to the starting field of about 30.

Mum Lisa said it was amazing effort against some outstanding competition from across Australia.

"We are very proud of her - she did extremely well to get that far."
