    CZ at the State Flat Teams/Musical Ride/Games Champs

    At the Pony Club Victoria State Flat Teams/Musical Ride/Games Championships on 25th and the 26th of November, there were electrical storms, sun that burned and rain that made the ground slippery all in 48 hours in true Aussie style. The Central zone teams camped and celebrated getting to State level while making new friends with other clubs and learning a lot.

    On the Saturday competing for Central Zone were 1x Flat Team of Four (Macedon), 4x Pairs Teams (Macedon A, B and C) and Kyneton, 2x Musical Ride Teams (Gisborne and Oaklands).

    On the Sunday, we entered four games teams: Macedon A&B, Werribee and Gisborne/Bullengarook.

    The teams which were presented with sashes were: Macedon Team of Four 1st; Macedon Pairs 2nd; Gisborne Musical Ride 5th;  Macedon A games 3rd; Macedon B games 5th; Werribee games 6th. But this doesn't convey the excitement, trials and tribulations and achievements experienced by the teams. See the club reports here for more.

    The youngest members - the future of pony club




    GPC combined lead rein groups

    In these days of falling numbers, it is important that our youngest riders are engaged, having fun, so that they are interested enough to stay on in the club.

    At Gisborne PC, there are 3 lead rein groups. Here they are shown lining up for a combined games session. See the news page for the games they played and other ideas for the youngest riders.
