Seymour Pony Club sent a team of four riders to the North East Zone of PCAV Games, Flat Teams and Musical Ride competition on Saturday.
The team consisted of Monique Rouessart, 10, riding Indianna, Siobhan Minter, 11, riding Crystal, Anastasia Minter, 10, riding Nattai Cosmos and Tiegan Smith, 13, riding Sindar.
They had been practising a musical ride to the theme Madagascar 3: Afro Circus, choreographed by team manager Jane Minter, with costumes designed by Lisa Rouessart.
Despite the heavy rain which washed off the horses’ painted spots, the team rode well and won the event.
They also won this event last year with three of the four riders competing both years. The next stage for the team is to compete at the state competition at Bacchus Marsh Pony Club on June 14-15.
