Jack Clancy had a very successful 2019 in the demanding equestrian sport of dressage. Several excellent performances at pony club events throughout the South West Slopes, Riverina and the Snowy Mountains regions allowed Jack to be selected for NSW. He was one of three selected to represent NSW at the Australian Pony Club Championships in preliminary dressage, where he finished runner-up in the national under 14 division, with his NSW team winning this event overall. Jack was also selected as first reserve for the NSW team in show jumping.

He also received the 2019 National Youth Australian Stock Horse Society U13 Dressage and Show Jumping Championship award to top off a great year. Jack is a talented athlete and was an integral player in the Cootamundra Public School’s successful rugby team and also represented the Coota Bears junior rugby under 12’s with distinction.
