Jezebelleh takes out 12 ribbons at Mildura

Eleven-year-old Jezebelleh Muttock from Broken Hill loves her horses, so much so that the young autistic girl was nonverbal until the four-legged friends were introduced into her life.

“She has a great bond with her horses, a lot of trust goes into it for both Jezebelleh and the horses,” mum Barbara Grose-Muttock told us.

The School of the Air student ventured down to the Mildura Show this past weekend, with her mother, sister and three of her horses, to compete in the equestrian events.

Her family often stays at her grandparent’s property on the other side of Wilcannia, so the School of the Air is ideal.

This is the first big show that she has competed in, and she took out 12 ribbons and was named reserved champion for novelties with her horse Teddy.


Ms Grose-Muttock says her daughter she has been riding for the last couple of years.

“We’ve bought Jezzie down here for a bit of exposure with other people, horses and to mingle,” she said.

A member of the Broken Hill Pony Club, Jezebelleh says she loves everything about horses and the love that they give back is one of the special things.

She also enjoys talking with her four-legged friends and it is almost as if they talk back, she says, so there is definitely a strong connection between Jezebelleh and her steeds.
