Gal­ston Eques­trian Club - Dres­sage, Jump­ing and Fun with our Horses!

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News - Our new Bendigo Bank jump

Our Dres­sage Pro­to­col Day on 2nd April, with ex­pert in­struc­tors Gisela Nils­son-Hard­ing (level A judge, men­tor, judge ed­u­ca­tor and EA young horse judge) and Pam Dal­rym­ple (very ex­pe­ri­enced level B judge) was booked up within a week of ad­ver­tis­ing and had a wait list! All the rid­ers ben­e­fit­ted hugely from the lessons and were keen to prac­tise what they learnt. Sin­cere thanks to Gisela and Pam for shar­ing their knowl­edge in such an en­cour­ag­ing way.

It was a beau­ti­ful day on 10th April for our Clear Round Show Jump­ing, with the sun shin­ing in a cloud­less sky, and the arena grass neatly cut for the day by the Hornsby Coun­cil. Pic­ture per­fect! Fifty ex­cited rid­ers walked the course ad­mir­ing our beau­ti­ful brand new jumps be­fore head­ing for the start. One jump in par­tic­u­lar caused much in­ter­est – the new Bendigo Bank jump, kindly spon­sored by Bendigo Bank Gal­ston, our com­mu­nity bank. The man­ager, Gary Man­gan, came to see it and even gave us a hand in set­ting the jump up! He was pre­sented with a Cer­tifi­cate of Ap­pre­ci­a­tion by Liz Jones, our Pres­i­dent, and Donna Do­rahy, our Show Jump­ing Phase Head. Some pho­tos taken on the day will be on the re­volv­ing screen in the bank branch. Thank you very much, Bendigo Bank, for your gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship, and Donna and her team for a well or­gan­ised event.
