A gymkhana worth wait­ing for

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THE Miles Horse and Pony Club held their first gymkhana in al­most a decade to the de­light of over 40 riders on Sun­day.

“With our club re­cently grow­ing to wel­come more and more riders, we thought “why not?” let’s put on our very own gymkhana,” Miles in­struc­tor Kim Hill said.

“We’ve re­ceived so much sup­port from our pony club fam­i­lies as well as the wider Miles com­mu­nity,” she said

“Sun­day’s event wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble with­out ev­ery­one’s gen­er­ous time and en­ergy.”

“The other clubs around the re­gion have been won­der­ful with get­ting on board and send­ing riders here for our very first gymkhana in about 9 years,

“It is some­thing we will be aim­ing to or­gan­ise an­nu­ally from now on.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for our newer riders to get a taste of the gymkhana ex­pe­ri­ence in a friendly at­mos­phere.”
