December DC Report

Our December Rally will be lots of fun with ribbons, the turnout award, inter-club showjumping competition, 6 Bar champion and of course the Fancy Dress. We also have a Freshmans Barrel race run by none other than Peta Brennan, experienced barrel racer.

The day will start at 9am on Sunday, December 1st and riders are encouraged to check the Rally Plan page just before the event for all the details.

Upcoming events

We had our final meeting recently and we hope for the new year to have a western day at the club and some more games – including musical games.

State Qualifiers

Our state qualifiers will be held at Hurstbridge on the 7th & 8th of December and we will need some helpers in the canteen. Other jobs are divided amongst other clubs. We have Isabella, Eloise and Clancy riding from our club.

Grading

Just a reminder if you wish to be graded let me know before pony club so I can liaise with the instructor and verify the new graded level. Your cards need to be complete and it is your responsibility to have them complete and up to date.

See you all at the December Rally and hope you can make it a fun day!

Happy Riding, Andrea Barton
