Jamieson Pri­mary School ride out

Mansfield Courier - - NEWS -

ONE of the many ad­van­tages to school­ing in the Mans­field Shire is the wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties each school of­fers.

Last week, stu­dents from the Jamieson Pri­mary School en­joyed a day out horse rid­ing.

Run by McCor­mack’s Moun­tain Val­ley Trail Rides, stu­dents were ex­pected to groom, pre­pare and sad­dle their own horse be­fore get­ting ready to ride.

Af­ter lunch, stu­dents spent time learn­ing the ba­sics of rid­ing be­fore play­ing some gymkhana games.

It is the third year run­ning Jamieson Pri­mary School has spent the day with McCor­mack’s – with both the Mer­ri­jig and Steiner Schools also spend­ing time horse-rid­ing dur­ing the 2017 school year.

HONEY: Geor­gia White­hand and Honey the horse wait their turn at last week’s Jamieson Pri­mary School horse rid­ing les­son.

PEA ON A PUMP­KIN: Lit­tle Char­lie Eury was lucky enough to score CJ for her rid­ing les­son, one of the big­gest – but kin­d­est – horses.

PROUD AS PUNCH: Locky Konin was stoked to come home with a fist­ful of rib­bons.
