    Jack Driver is riding from success to success in the world of horseback archery.

    Already an experienced horseman at 11 years of age, Jack, of Thornlands, has followed his gold-winning streak at the Australian Horseback Archery Association National Championships in June with further wins at the South East Queensland Australian Horse Archery Association Championships at Chambers Flat on October 17 and 18 and again at the Australian Horse Archery Association State Championships, held in South Australia on October 31 and November 1.

    At the South East Queensland event, Jack won the Junior (up to 17-years) Preliminary Division and at the event in South Australia, he also placed first in the Junior Preparatory Division.

    At both events, he competed in the walking section and was required to make single and multi shots at a range of angles.

    Jack’s mother Katy Driver said she was delighted with Jack’s performance, especially as he only took his first archery lesson in April this year.

    “He’s doing really well,” she said.

    “At the South East Queensland event, it was a hot day and he was feeling sick from the heat, but he kept shooting in all his classes.

    “I’m extremely proud of him.

    “He conducts himself in such a polite and professional manner.

    “He always has big smiles on his face as he comes down the runway.”

    Ms Driver said Jack’s confidence was improving with each competition.

    “He shoots so beautifully and has such a nice form,” she said.

    Jack is now aiming to compete again in Port Douglas on the weekend of November 14 and 15.
