Birch replaces Levett as travelling reserve | Equestrian Australia

Bill Levett has withdrawn as Australia’s travelling reserve for Eventing after his horse Alexander NJ sustained a minor injury. While Levett’s horse will make a full recovery, he won’t overcome the injury in time for the horses’ departure for Rio on Friday. Equestrian Australia (EA) is currently making arrangements for Samantha Birch and Hunter Valley II to fill the travelling reserve position. Australia is permitted one travelling reserve for Eventing.

I ride horses and compete in Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing or Horse Trials. I also own and run an Equestrian property to the East of Melbourne, Australia. In my spare time I run a couple of websites including and To afford all this I work a full time job, so the definition of spare time is usually after dark. Sleep is over rated ;-) In my Blogs I try to tell what I am doing with the horses, give some updates with regards to the equestrian events I am attending and any relevant news about horse health and performance. I also give reviews on any new products I get my hands on related to my horsey activities If yuo want to buy or sell horses or anything equestrian related try
