Rid­ers let their hair down for t-shirt day

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

EQUES­TRIAN GROUP THE Whit­sun­day Eques­trian Group hosted a dressage t-shirt day com­pe­ti­tion at Can-non­va­l­ley Pony Club on Sun­day.

Club pres­i­dent Tracey Davies said the com­pe­ti­tion was a great start to the 2014 sea­son since many events had been can­celled due to wet weather or poor ground con­di­tions.

Davies said the dressage tshirt day was de­signed to al­low rid­ers to par­tic­i­pate with­out the fuss of their rid­ing at­tire or plait­ing up their horses.

“It’s a more re­laxed day of com­pe­ti­tion which is a good way to start the sea­son,” she said.

“It gives rid­ers an op­por­tu­nity to con­cen­trate on their skills with­out the ex­tra pres­sure of pre­sen­ta­tion.”

Eques­trian Na­tional Coach­ing Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Scheme (NCAS) judge and coach Nancy Baretta trav­elled from Mount Ossa, north of Mackay to judge the event.

The Whit­sun­day Eques­trian Group wel­comes all new rid­ers who have an in­ter­est in eques­trian ac­tiv­i­ties to join the club.

FREESTYLE EVENT: Ac­cred­ited judge and coach Nancy Baretta with se­nior rider Ali Kronk on her horse Kin­nordy Dunja who com­peted in the dressage t-shirt com­pe­ti­tion at the Cannonvalley Pony Club on Sun­day.
