Club saddles up for healthy eating
Margaret River Horseman’s and Horses and Pony Club will host its Christmas showjumping competition on Sunday and is promoting healthy eating options for all attendees.
The club is taking part in the Race Around the State healthy eating campaign, supported by the Pony Club of WA and with funding from government spon- sor Healthway. Canteen co-ordinator Lee Gillan said the local club was in seventh position in the competition, and would acquire new equipment if it was the overall winner.
“As a sporting club, we are very lucky to live in a region where we have a large variety of fresh produce and the support of local businesses, which are always happy to donate their products for our club events,” she said.
“Being a part of this campaign has given us the opportunity to assess and streamline our food menu. We have been given tools, recipes and ongoing support to help create a fantastic canteen.”
The event kicks off at 9am at the club on Roxburgh Road.
