Safety First at Glenorie Pony Club

This month, Glenorie Pony Club held a Horse Rider Fall Clinic, run by Lindsay from Horse Rider Fall Safety Training. Training in safe falling techniques is proven to be valuable and helps decrease the risk of injury. This clinic proved to be very popular and informative for our riders. We would love to thank our incredibly supportive sponsor for this event, Willu Prestige Property. (photo of Gabby learning to fall safely off the bucking bronco in the Fall Clinic)

While this beautiful rain meant Combined Training had to be postponed, Glenorie Pony Club also hosted its Pony Club Zone 26 Dressage Championships this month.

It was evident that riders and their mounts had been training hard, with beautiful dressage tests and strong results. 100 dressage tests were ridden by riders from Zones 26, 23, 19, 22 and 24. Congratulations to champions and place getters in all age groups and levels.
