Central and North Burnett Times - - JUNIOR SPORT - Erica.murree@cnbtimes.com.au

YOUNG rid­ers called on their mums and dads and aunts and un­cles to lead their steeds around the horse arena at the Biggen­den Show.

Num­bers may have been down on Satur­day for the Pony Club events but the un­der-six group were in there hav­ing a go.

For Dal­larnil’s Tay­lor Foster, it was her first time com­pet­ing in the ring.

Mum Mon­ica said she was just so proud of her daugh­ter.

The Dal­larnil prep stu­dent said: “I did good!”

“I’m go­ing to keep do­ing it,” she said.

Three-year old Chloe Cooper was hav­ing a fun time rid­ing Coco.

“My mum rode her when she was young,” she said.

Stew­ard Ros Buczma said it was great to see fam­ily en­cour­ag­ing and as­sist­ing the young rid­ers in the led classes.

Ta­mara Buczma, win­ning the ju­ve­nile sec­tion of the Mark El­liott Me­mo­rial Stock­man’s Chal­lenge, said the bri­dle she re­ceived would come in handy.

Emi Clay­ton of Dal­larnil waits her turn to com­pete.

“The event was well-run,” she said.

Ms Buczma said a come and try day would be held in the fu­ture to try to get more mem­bers for the Pony Club.

Any­one in­ter­ested or wish­ing more in­for­ma­tion can phone 0418 625 021.
