The Grade 4 and 3 riders were taught all apects of horse trials, from dressage to show jumping and cross country.
Rules and regulations were covered, as were techniques to help clear the biggest and smallest of jobs.
Riders represented the Deniliquin, Kerang, Cohuna, Nyah, Lake Albert, Tocumwal and Bamawm Extension pony clubs.
‘‘This was the first year we had run the program and it was so worth while, the girls loved it,’’ Northern Zone chief instructor Janette Graham said.
‘‘Girls travelled from all over the zone to take part and they learnt a lot of new skills.’’
