Training has paid off for Forbes Pony Club members last weekend at the Forbes Showjumping competition with multiple placings won amongst strong classes of competitors attending from Canberra to Cobar.
President Laurie Norris said that he was very proud of all of the club competitors and that the stiff competition and tough courses they faced could only improve their jumping.
Jake Tomlinson and Ellie Glasson were placed first and sixth respectively in the 90cm in the “big ring” and in the slightly smaller levels Rachel Garland was first in the 45, 5th in the 60 and a 3rd and also secured a 1st in the 70. Rachael Morgan placed 4th in the 70, Tess Worland 3rd in the 70 and 5th in the 80 and Jemma Hodder 5th in the 70. Amy Richardson was 4th in the 80 and 2nd in the 70 and Chelsie Farmer 1st and 2nd in the 80 and 5th in the 90.
Of particular note was the 70cm on Sunday where all five placings were taken out by Forbes Pony Club riders. “Big congratulations to everyone and to all riders who represented our club so proudly.”
