Winter results warming for local pony club
CANNONVALLEY Pony Club is relishing in winter, boasting impressive results.
Amy Gray, Abby Lee and Lachlan Gray travelled to North Mackay Pony Club for a gymkhana a fortnight ago.
Amy and horse Darlina placed in every event for the 11-13 year group, before ultimately being crowned the winner.
Abby and Bella won the 9-11 years championship and finished third in the rider class.
Lachlan on Nina finished third in the 9-11 years, placing in most events and finishing second in the combined boy/ girl rider class.
Last weekend Equine Con- nections’ Mandy Probyn conducted a foundation clinic.
Twelve local adult riders gained plenty of knowledge and training tips, with beginner to advanced students learning plenty of all equine disciplines, including pleasure, western, drafting, showjumping and dressage.
All in attendance learnt new training techniques and evidently grew in confidence.
The next clinic – “building on the foundations” – will be held in November.
This weekend will see Bree Wiblen, Breeanna Purvis and Tori Mansfield travel to Sarina for their official dressage and combined training competitions.
