Com­mu­nity groups sad­dle up to­gether

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

TWO com­mu­nity groups have leapt over the first hur­dle in their cross coun­try part­ner­ship.

Wan­neroo Horse and Pony Club pres­i­dent Mike Agnew broached the idea of build­ing cross coun­try ob­sta­cles with the North­ern Sub­urbs Men’s Shed, which jumped at the chance.

Shed mem­bers re­cently at­tended the club’s rally to present the first of the por­ta­ble cross-coun­try jumps, which riders were keen to test out.

Ge­orge Day said the project sup­ported the shed’s mis­sion to im­prove the well­be­ing of men through mate­ship and shared ac­tiv­i­ties that add value to the com­mu­nity.

Mr Agnew said fos­ter­ing re­la­tion­ships be­tween groups demon­strated one of the club’s ideals.

“While WHPC en­cour­ages young peo­ple to learn about horse-rid­ing and eques­trian sport, it also strives to pro­mote cit­i­zen­ship,” he said.

“We are very grate­ful to the North­ern Sub­urbs Men’s Shed for work­ing with us and pro­vid­ing these re­sources.”
