The first criteria for eventing selection for the Olympic Games by the international governing body, the FEI is a completion at 5*.

Hazel and her Off the Track Thoroughbred Willinga Park Clifford were the only Australian combination to win a 5* event anywhere in the world last year.

Their success is the eventing equivalent to winning the Melbourne Cup. In fact, Hazel and Willing Park Clifford have won the event a historic three times. In 2016, 2018 and 2019.

Despite these record-breaking performances, Hazel has not been listed on the Equestrian Australia GOLD High Performance Squad & is not considered a chance to make the team for Tokyo...without your help!

There have been issues with Equestrian Australia's High Performance program in respect to management and selection, that sadly, don’t seem to have been resolved since Rio.

Favouritism and retribution must give way to rewarding proven performance. Support inspiring our next generation of young female athletes to achieve their ambitions. It is vital that the dysfunction in the sport, does not impact on the proven ability of a capable young rider and her horse.

Give Hazel a fair go, please sign this petition and support the campaign to get a young Olympic hopeful to Tokyo 2020.
