Audie Mansfield Memorial Club Championshipw
In 2020, the AMM evolved from a futurity event in August to centre stage as the Audie Mansfield Memorial Dressage Championships. This show, normally held in October each year, is the final members dressage event for the year and awarded as an aggregate championship over two tests.
Riders and horses are turned out in formal attire and are rewarded with double points towards high-point championships.
In Memory of Audie Mansfield:
Audie Mansfield, was a much-loved and long time member of LEG. She had a very long association with horses having shown and bred Arabian horses for years, and was well known around the show ring circles, along with her farrier husband Ron, who also showed Arabians in harness, and ran a business transporting brides to their weddings by horse and carriage.
Audie loved all animals and at her home at Spring Creek fed the lorikeets each day when they came down to their lovely garden. She bred bantam chooks and Bourke's parrots, and had 4 dogs, a Rhodesian ridgeback, two Shih Tzus and a Foxie.
Audie also loved swimming and for many years taught swimming in various locations.
She was a regular competitor at LEG days with her Arabian horse Coolmunda Olympic (Ollie) and was also a Dressage Judge and often helped out in that capacity at Dressage Days.
