Grafton gallops in

WHEN a small group of 15 riders left Grafton on Friday to attend the jamboree over the weekend at Murwillumbah, little did they know they would be representing the Grafton Pony Club in such a big way.

Events held over the two days included flat riding, sporting, dressage and showjumping.

All riders received numerous ribbons for their personal achievements throughout the competition, but the presentation at the end of the event highlighted the outstanding achievements of the Grafton participants.

Points scored were tallied at the end of the day and not revealed until the presentation.

It was a pleasant surprise that this small group accomplished such big results (see results left).

Grafton Pony Club riders can now have a small break from competition and look forward to their annual spring camp, to be held from September 28 to October 3.
