Bamawm Extension Pony Club and Nathalia Pony Club are joining forces next month to run a combined horse trials on Sunday, May 18, at Barmah Racecourse Recreation Reserve.
The sport of horse trials, also known as eventing, is the triathlon of equestrian sports with riders and their mounts competing in the three disciplines of dressage, cross-country and showjumping over the course of the event.
Australia has had great Olympic and international success at horse trials, and many of the country’s top riders got their start at pony club.
The Barmah event is open to pony club and open riders, who are graded according to jumping ability from the introductory class of 45cm through to grade two at 90cm.
Both clubs are looking forward to a great day out, for riders and spectators alike.
