Busy times for young riders

HORSE SPORTS: Competition time is just around the corner at the Warrego Pony Club, with little more than a week to go until it hosts two major events.

First up will be the sporting gymkhana on October 20, which is open to all ages and abilities.

On the following day, members will be involved in the Zone 13 Shield, competing against riders from Augathella, Cunnamulla, Quilpie and Thargomindah.

The gymkhana is set to be a huge day for Warrego, with a lengthy list of events being run for all age groups, and prizes for group winners.

Each age group will try their hand at bending, keyhole, flag, and stock horse races, along with a host of other events to hone their techniques.

For a special feature, the club is running a jackpot team barrel race.

The team event will see groups of three ride for a prize pool, which will only increase with nominations, which cost $15 for each team.

To compete in the regular gymkhana events, an entry fee of $20 will apply for each horse and club member combination, or a $27 total fee for non-members.

Most importantly, riders should remember their helmets - a requirement for participation in the gymkhana.
