RAIN may have kept some competitors away but the spirits of Chinchilla Pony Club riders were not dampened at their annual gymkhana.
A total of 32 riders from across the district paraded their steeds around the Chinchilla Showgrounds on Sunday.
The keen young horsemen and women showed off their talent across a circuit of skill testers including barrel racing and pole bending.
Past Chinchilla Pony Club president Di McIntyre, who watched the action from the grandstands, said the club had a bright future.
"Our club is going from strength to strength," she said.
"The majority of our riders are on lead ropes so in a few years time our gymkhana will be unbelievable with all these young riders off their leads."
