The York Pony Club again hosted a successful weekend of eventing from the 7th to 8th of May 2016.
Over 60 riders from all over the State travelling from as far as Kalgoorlie and competed in three phases – dressage, show jumping and cross country.
Three riders, Natasha Jurmann, Katie Harris and Hollie Mather, from the York Pony Club competed in both individual and zone events with Hollie being the highest placed zone rider in the 85cm class and Natasha 3rd in the 65cm zone class.
“We were very lucky with the weather and I am very proud for a small Club that we can conduct such a high level event. I am very proud of all of the riders that participated and particularly, our riders who both competed and assisted with the organisation over the weekend” says the Club President, Amanda Mather.
To host the Event the Club upgraded the show jumping and dressage arenas, and rebuilt many of the jumps on the cross country course, including now being able to boast about a new and challenging water jump.
The Club would like to thank their major sponsors for the event – Shire of York, Dave & Kelly Tanner of York Bobcat Hire, Silverfern Photography, Northam Lions Club and Coffee Clinic.
