World-class quality expected at event
National Miniature State Championships
THIS weekend, horse enthusiasts from around the region will gather for the National Miniature State Championships.
This year’s event is set to be hosted by Sharon Dixon on her property, Quarter Horse Sunrise, in Cordalba.
The horses and ponies will be presented to national judges, with world-class standards expected by breeders, trainers and judges alike.
State delegate Geraldine Peters said this year’s championships were going to be huge, with many more events.
“Miniatures are becoming more popular,” she said.
“Their size appeals to many people.
“This weekend is a great way to spend the day with family, and we encourage everyone to bring a picnic basket.”
The alcohol-free event will have a limited selection of drinks, and the organisers suggest packing a basket with the intention of setting up a picnic on a blanket.
“I need to stress the no-alcohol policy, as organisers don’t have the authority to provide or allow any form of alcohol beverage,” Mrs Peters said.
The family-friendly event will showcase the region’s best miniature horses and ponies.
