Club cel­e­brates 30th birth­day

Southern Riverina news - - CLASSIES LOCAL -

It has been 30 years since the Fin­ley Horse and Har­ness Trail­ing Rid­ing Club was es­tab­lished and to celebrate, the club held a re­union at the Lions Hall at the Fin­ley Show­grounds on Sun­day.

More than 30 past and present mem­bers at­tended the so­cial event for a bar­be­cue lunch, which was blessed with sun­shine and fine weather.

Two orig­i­nal mem­bers and the club’s cur­rent co­pres­i­dents, Ray James and Colin Tay­lor, were thrilled to re­ceive life mem­ber­ships on the day.

To thank ev­ery­one, they had the hon­our of cut­ting the 30th birth­day cake which was en­joyed by all.

Af­fil­i­ated with the Aus­tralian Horse Trail Rid­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, the lo­cal club meets on the sec­ond Sun­day of each month for a so­cial ride at var­i­ous prop­er­ties and na­tional parks around the South­ern Rive­rina.

Club sec­re­tary Julie Lough­man said the all-day ride is a re­lax­ing, so­cial time out and en­cour­ages any­one to join.

‘‘I love rid­ing through the scrub through the bush by the river,’’ she said.

‘‘We usu­ally have lunch be­tween noon and 1pm and ride off again af­ter lunch, it’s al­ways a good day.’’

Ms Lough­man said there are no age re­stric­tions, how­ever mem­bers un­der the age of 16 must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult.
