Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THIS Sun­day will see the Proser­pine Hack and Pony Club Grounds come alive for the North Queens­land Eques­trian Show.

In con­junc­tion with this year’s show, Coast to Coal Quar­ter Horse As­so­ci­a­tion Inc is run­ning an A Show Western Pro­gram. Mem­bers over the last few months have been busy pre­par­ing the grounds for this an­nual event, in­clud­ing the con­struc­tion of a new toi­let and shower com­plex. Pres­i­dent Suzanne Green­halgh said “this year is set to be big­ger than ever, with com­peti­tors trav­el­ling from far North Cairns and as far south as Rock­hamp­ton” for the event which will in­clude the Filby’s Mo­tor Proser­pine Jump­ing Ring, the Sad­dle- world Rock­hamp­ton Horse and Rider New­comer Horse of the Year.

This year’s New­comer event has sparked great in­ter­est, with promis­ing nom­i­na­tions set to bat­tle for a host of prizes. Other events on the day in­clude the Hoof and Horn Pro­duce and Sad­dlery Cham­pion Led Horse, Lanskey’s Sad­dle­world Townsville Cham­pion Pony Ju­nior Rider and Out­back Brick­lay­ing Supreme Hack of Show and Cham­pion and Re­serve Cham­pion Adult Rider and Leigh’s Quar­ter Horse Stud Hi Point Horse.

En­try into the grounds is free so spec­ta­tors are en­cour­aged to at­tend. A fully catered can­teen and bar­beque will also be avail­able on the day.
