Big boost for horse fa­cil­i­ties

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

BE­NALLA Eques­trian Cen­tre will get a cov­ered rid­ing arena to pro­vide an all-weather fa­cil­ity with flood­light­ing, to cre­ate a key re­gional eques­trian fa­cil­ity able to host more events, in­clud­ing those at the high­est level of the sport.

The State Gov­ern­ment has an­nounced a $250,000 grant to help de­liver the $392,000 project, be­ing jointly funded by fundrais­ing ef­forts and the Be­nalla Ru­ral City coun­cil.

Ja­clyn Symes (MLC, North­ern Vic­to­ria) said the three ma­jor stake­holder groups of Be­nalla Pony Club, Be­nalla Adult Rid­ers and Big Val­ley Quar­ter Horse As­so­ci­a­tion, along with the Raise the Roof com­mit­tee, had done an amaz­ing job.
