Ba­rooga’s Made­lyn Hatty tack­les an ob­sta­cle on the course at the Co­bram and Dis­trict Pony Club’s an­nual Showjump­ing and Dres­sage Day.

Clear skies and a warm win­ter’s day greeted riders for Co­bram and Dis­trict Pony Club’s an­nual Showjump­ing and Dres­sage Day on June 18 at the Muck­atah Re­cre­ation Re­serve.

Riders came from as far as Swan Hill, Wodonga, Sey­mour, De­niliquin, Wan­garatta, Rochester, Lurg, Be­nalla, Chiltern and Hay as well as from the lo­cal Nu­murkah, Yar­ra­wonga Tocumwal, Jer­ilderie and Co­bram ar­eas.

‘‘We had fan­tas­tic weather, and 90 en­tries in all the dis­ci­plines,’’ Co­bram and Dis­trict Pony Club pres­i­dent Barb Clarke said.

‘‘The Co­bram and Dis­trict Pony Club was com­pli­mented on its fan­tas­tic grounds and how great they looked.

‘‘The hard work by the club and other vol­un­teer helpers has been amaz­ing; freshly painted jumps and new sand ar­eas stood out to ev­ery­one.

‘‘A great day seemed to be had by all.’’

Co­bram and Dis­trict Pony Club was first founded in 1961.

Since then, it’s pro­vided 56 years of com­mu­nity ser­vice in the area, sup­port­ing young riders for the love of their horses and their sport, and try­ing to make a dif­fer­ence to peo­ple’s lives.
