Sportsmanship wins the day at pony club

GYMKHANA: Riders in the South Burnett had the opportunity to perform and learn new skills at Kumbia Pony Club's recent gymkhana.

The event attracted riders from Nanango, Blackbutt and Wondai as well as riders from Cambooya, Cabarlah and Jandowae who travelled to Kumbia on Sunday, April 29 to take part.

Sandra Brunner is a chief instructor for Kumbia Pony Club and said the gymkhana was a great opportunity for clubs to come together and compete.

"Everybody did well and showed really great sportsmanship,” she said.

"We have got a fairly young club with not many older riders and the young ones are riding very well.”

The sporting gymkhana is an annual event for the Kumbia club with riders competing in bending barrels, ben bar aft, sporting figure of eight and a running tee.

The club caters for all riding levels and will hold their next monthly rally day on Sunday, May 20.
