Hitting the big time at Brisbane Ekka
MONOGORILBY locals, Grace, 5, Eve, 6, and Jill, 8, Radke recently competed for the first time at the Brisbane Ekka. The girls came home with memories and ribbons from their first experience at a Royal Show. There were 19 to 21 competitors in each class. Grace won first prize in the Girl Rider 3 years and under 6 years. Then, Montego Showgirl and Eve with Joanne placed 8th in the Girl Rider 6 years and under 8 years. At Royal Shows children under eight years of age have to be on a lead rein and accompanied by an attendant. Later the same day Jill won the red ribbon to gain second in the Girl Rider 8 years and under 10 years. Catch next week’s paper for the full story.
