High jinks on horseback

KILLARNEY Pony Club held its monthly rally on Sunday.

A busy day of showjumping, flatwork and novelty events was enjoyed by riders from 4-16 years.

Sharon Briggs and Bill Crowther provided the sausages for hungry riders, Corey Keable continued with his expert coaching in the showjumping and chief instructor Phil Brown, as always, provided a sense of humour as well as his many years of coaching experience.

This year has been particularly busy for members - from staging a display at the Killarney Show to helping Killarney Recreational Club members with a cutting competition and Killarney School Motorbike Ride in March.

In September the pony club has the huge task of organising the campdraft for the Queensland Pony Club state championships, in conjunction with other Zone 21 clubs.

Next month the annual campdraft and gymkhana will be held on the weekend of June 16-17 however an important date on the pony club calendar will be the benefit day for Brendan McIvor on June 2 at Tannymorel.

Brendan is recovering from an horrific accident and the pony club will join with the Tannymorel Campdraft and Rodeo Association to host a mini campdraft and sporting day in his honour.
