Clinic raises bar

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

MONTO horse en­thu­si­asts have at­tended a clinic un­der the guid­ance of former Olympian Guy Creighton.

The Pony Club of Queens­land course build­ing clinic was held at the Cromp­ton Park Pony Club grounds in Rockhampton.

Monto in­struc­tors Kirsten Burgess, Linda Brown and An­nette Evans gained knowl­edge in judg­ing showjump­ing and how to build a course.

An­nette Evans said Creighton was very knowl­edge­able.

“The high­light was be­ing shown dif­fer­ent jumps and how to build a course,” she said.

Burgess has course build­ing and show jump­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion and will train for state cer­tifi­cates. Brown and Evans are pro­ba­tion­ary show jump­ing judges and course builders.

Creighton rep­re­sented Aus­tralia in showjump­ing in 1976 at Mon­treal and 1984 in Los An­ge­les.
