Life on the farm is one of Marion’s loves

Horses, golf, Mansfield hospital and Merino sheep included in pursuits

web---Our-People_Sergeant-02LOVE OF MANSFIELD: Marion Sargeant’s move to Mansfield has given her the chance to enjoy the pursuits she loves - life on the farm, horses, golf and helping with the Mansfield District Hospital Auxiliary.

DESPITE her love of horses since a little girl, Marion Sargeant never managed to get her own until she was married and bought a pony for her three year old son.

Even though her older sister had one when she was young, her father said it was still no go, horses were too much trouble.

But after her son Peter got one it all fell into place and Marion has kept on with horses since that time, putting in considerable time in two pony clubs.

Born in Melbourne in 1947, Marion went to Methodist Ladies College in Hawthorn where she played all the sports on offer, especially netball and baseball.

But she kept her interest in horses on hold until she married Tony in 1971 and they started life together in Doreen.

This was a time when her love of horses led her to a big involvement with the Yarrambat Pony Club, where Marion was District Commissioner for seven years.
