Larapinta World Cup Show Jumping event – 25th–28th April 2024

What a truly spectacular equestrian event this was!!!  Not only did it happened right on our Brisbane doorstep, but Reason to Thrive was given front row seats!!!

Our sincere thanks need to go to Nicky and the Irvine family, at Larapinta Equestrian, for choosing to make our charity the fundraising focus of this amazing equestrian event, held at their spectacular grounds south of Brisbane.

The event ran for 4 days and showcased some of the toughest show jumping competitors in Australia and New Zealand, with spectators coming from all over the country to watch this FEI World Cup event.

In addition to Nicky, we’d also like to say a huge thank you, and congratulations, to Stuart and Becky Jenkins, at Larapinta Show Jumping, for all the hard work and energy they put into organising this world class event, and supporting us over the 3 days we were on the grounds.  

And finally, we’d like to thank the following people/organisations who, thanks to their generosity and support, enabled us to raise an amazing $10,200 through our raffle towards funding future EAL programs to a number of people on our waiting lists:
