Central and North Burnett Times - - JUNIOR SPORT -

FOR 16-year-old Demi Robin­son, rid­ing horses is her life.

“I do dis­tance (ed­u­ca­tion) from home, so I ride horses and base my life around horses,” Demi said.

“I did that to work around the horses, so I had more time to get them all worked.

“Horses are my pas­sion, it’s my life ba­si­cally.”

Demi first joined the Mundubbera Horse and Pony Club when she was seven years old.

“Iwas in it for a fair few years be­fore it died down, which was sad, but it was al­ways a load of fun,” she said.

“I’m re­ally proud of the club, it’s such a great place for kids to learn, it’s very com­mu­nal and good fun.

“I have so many great mem­o­ries with friends here.”

The club restarted on Sun­day, May 22 af­ter be­ing in­ac­tive for about two years.

Club pres­i­dent Mark Trott said the come and try day on Sun­day had a good turnout and went well.

“It was a good roll­out for the first day get­ting go­ing again,” Trott said.

“We started again as there were a few peo­ple keen who had young kids.

“We’ll have a few more ral­lies like to­day and get a bit more or­gan­ised.”

As for Demi, she said she was ex­cited to see the club back on its feet and would give oth­ers a help­ing hand when needed.

“I re­ally like see­ing it up and run­ning,” she said

“I’m happy to al­ways come and help, I don’t have to bring a horse, and I’ll come and do what­ever they need.

“Let’s see if we can get a good club to­gether again.”

ON THE SAD­DLE: Demi Robin­son is keen to come and help get the club up and run­ning again.
