PONY CLUB: Dur­ing the Easter school hol­i­days, two Can­non­va­l­ley riders trav­elled to Gat­ton for the Jump Eq­ui­tation and Show Jump­ing Cham­pi­onships.

Both Amy and Lochlan Gray rode ex­cep­tional rounds with high plac­ings dur­ing the four days.

Lochlan picked up a fourth in the first round of eq­ui­tation in his group, also plac­ing third in the grand prix of the show jump­ing phase to place him 10th over­all.

Amy placed fifth in her first round of eq­ui­tation in her group, go­ing on to re­ceive sec­ond in the power and speed of the show jump­ing phase to fin­ish ninth over­all.

Th­ese are awe­some re­sults from the young Can­non­va­l­ley riders.

On April 10, Can­non­va­l­ley riders were in­vited out to Collinsville Pony Club to be put through the paces of the cross country course.

Mil­lie and Ruby Cran, Izzy Inglis, Ge­orgina, Abby and Char­lie Lee, Brooke and Tori Mans­field, Bon­nie Connell, Merle Neisler and Wendy His­coe all trav­elled out to the train­ing day.

Can­non­va­l­ley were thank­ful to Collinsville for the in­vi­ta­tion to prac­tise on the course, as many CVPC riders are look­ing to qual­ify for the one-day event­ing state cham­pi­onships in July, with qual­i­fy­ing com­pe­ti­tions be­ing held at Yep­poon and Collinsville.

On the week­end, Can­non­va­l­ley held a course­build­ing and show jump judg­ing school with seven par­tic­i­pants.

Rob McLach­lan trav­elled down from Char­ters Tow­ers to con­ducted the two-day course, go­ing through course­build­ing on Satur­day and show jump judg­ing on Sun­day.

Brooke Mans­field, Sammi War­ren and Linda No­ble all sat for their pro­ba­tion­ary tick­ets for gymkhana level and all were re­warded with pro­ba­tion­ary gymkhana lev­els.
