A gymkhana worth waiting for
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.”
