She Can Do Anything

She can navigate more than 120 kilometres cross country in five days, carrying a 30 kilo body pack.

Emm Bambling finished at Fairholme in 2013, with her heart set on mustering cattle down a dusty road in outback Australia, into the arms of a handsome stockman.

As for romance, it might just be the Barkly Breeze that's won our Fairholme girl's heart.

Climb Any Mountain

"Just give it a go. One kilometer at a time. That's applicable to any challenge in life. I just used that same mentality to make it through a Maths exam I sat 5 minutes ago. You get in there and try your hardest... who knows where you'll end up." - 16 year old Ellie Randall just 'got in there and had a go' at the Ride the Range 112km Event at the weekend, and was the first female to cross the finish line, in 3 hours 43 minutes. She's been riding long distance for just 5 months.
