Woogsie's successes with Georgie Harvey are legendary. He blitzed 2010 Sydney Royal, finishing Reserve Champion in the Young Rider section. The pair had their first outing and win in Young Riders at Gunnedah Showjumping Festival in July 09. And they followed this up with creat results at the Youth Championships, the States and the Nationals.

This talented chestnut Thoroughbred gelding moved to Copabella at the beginning of April 2008. He and his new partner Georgie Harvey clicked immediately, and demonstrated this by winning the Power and Speed 1.05 class, which had about 80 entries, at JK Williams less than two weeks later.

Woogsie and Georgie placed 6th in a class of 60+ in  the Junior Championships at the Queensland State Championships in Toowoomba, 2008. They followed this up the next weekend by placing 5th in the Junior Grand Prix at Toowoomba World Cup Show, in a class of 70+ entires.

Next they went on to win the National Interschools Equitation Final in Toowoomba, and promptly followed that up with a 7th placing out of a field of 120+ in the Junior Final at the National Showjumping Championships in Canberra.

At ISS in December 2008, the pair cemented their competitive position with a 4th place in the Junior Speed class, and a 6th place in the Junior Grand Prix Final.

They have started their 2009 season with a bang, by winning the Juniors Final at Camden Show in March. They followed this up with a series of red ribbons in the tough Junior classes at Sydney Royal, finishing Reserve Champions in the Junior category.

At Copabella Classic 2009, they battled it out with Tom McDermott in the Junior Final, and were pushed into 2nd place - again - by less than a second in the jump-off.

Woogsie is now retired in luxury in the Hunter Valley.
