Grenfell Pony Club hit the trails

Grenfell Pony Club hit the trails on Sunday September 20 for another fun filled rally day.

Lilly, Annabelle, Georgia, Adelaide, Emily and birthday girl Alice enjoyed a leisurely ride to Company Dam from the showground.

This trail ride was a first for many of our little riders, and the hills were a shock to the system for some of our small riders from the flats of Caragabal west.

Lilly did a great job managing her fresh horse on the tracks.

The children were all very brave navigating some of the steep declines the comps dam tracks had to offer.

We stopped at Company Dam for a much needed break - the adults leading the ponies needed it most.

The children enjoyed some birthday cupcakes for Alice's 4th birthday and a play around the dam.

When it came time to mount back up the sky opened up and the rain came pouring down on us.

This did not thrill the ponies or children very much!

Once the rain subsided we got back on track and rode the 2.5km back to the showground.

All our riders did a fabulous job and we were very proud of them all.

Grenfell Pony Club will be holding an extra rally day in the school holidays on Wednesday September 30 with a guest instructor.
