Gibber Gabbers 2012

It was a small but enthusiastic group of members who attended the first rally day of the year for Wamboin Pony Club. Our Secretary, Jeni, was very organised with the paperwork which meant that 2012 registration was efficient and speedy. On the day, eight junior/associate riding members attended, with Victoria Evans only able to attend after lunch.

The grounds were wet after recent rain and unfortunately a vehicle had been on the main arena performing doughnuts, so gear check and warm up was conducted in the smaller show jumping arena. This was a good opportunity to asses our two new members, Zoe and Ellie Haseler (previous members of Breadalbane Pony Club). The small group of six riders was split into two groups of three, with Amy, Laura and Kaitlin progressing to jumping exercises with Toni and Nicole, whilst Ellie, Zoe and Caitlin moved to the dressage arena for some flat work exercises with Marion. After an hour, the groups swapped activities.

Lunch was thanks again to the catering by the Evans family (Alison, Amy & Peter), assisted by Terri Brown. A short discussion with all members was had around upcoming events – Zone 16 Sporting and Jumping Equitation and Zone 16 Camp. The Feed Shed feed draw was won by Nicole and Tracey.
