The huge weekend of show jumping coming up this week at the Forbes Showground will feature strong representation from local Forbes Pony Club riders.
Pony Club president Laurie Norris said that the club members had been working hard training in preparation for the event and are really looking forward to doing their club proud.
“We have over ten members registered to ride at levels from 45cm to jumps over a metre,” Mr Norris said.
“Professionally run events such as Forbes Jumping give our club members a chance to compete against strong fields and to improve their show jumping”.
Forbes Pony Club meets regularly and membership has grown significantly over the last twelve months to over thirty riders aged from four to sixty years. New members are welcome at any time.
“Please come along and see not only our own great riders, but some of the best show jumpers in Australia” says Mr Norris “with hundreds of riders at the showground this is set to once again be a spectacular event”.
