PINJARRA Horse and Pony club celebrated what has been a fun filled year at their annual wind up camp last week.

The camp was filled with activities including pairs dressage, top score show jumping, cross country and a hobby horse show.

It was a time for members to reflect on the year that was, and many of the changes the club has embraced in 2017 – including their relocation to the Murray Regional Equestrian Centre in Coolup.

Pinjarra Horse and Pony Club president Shenae Tilbee said the move was daunting at first but all members were thrilled with the new facilities.

“We now have three cross country courses, multipurpose polo cross fields and a large river sand arena that can house three full sized dressage arenas,” she said.

“Sharing the grounds with multiple clubs from other disciplines also allows members to learn new equestrian skills and socialise with riders outside their pony club family.

“The committee and I are already planning the year ahead which includes ten rallies, a dressage competition, show jumping event and breed show.”

Rallies occur once a month and are a day for members to take lessons from qualified instructors in various disciplines including flat work, show jumping, active riding and theory.

“We are very excited for 2018 as we will be able to offer our members coaching in cross country, laser target shooting and agility,” said Ms Tilbee.

The club will be holding an enrolment rally on February 25 at the Murray Regional Equestrian Centre, and invite those who would like more information to attend.
