Reining in show title

Equestrian: Melinda Cann from Taroom was one of the supreme winners in the equestrian section of the Wallumbilla Show on Saturday.

Cann, and her stockhorse Tainted Love, expertly navigated the course, impressing the two judges with a series of rollbacks and lead changes.

Cann was awarded the supreme stockhorse ribbon for her efforts.

Kalli Nowell, also from Taroom, wowed on Cherry Tree Vagabond, winning the reserve champion ribbon in the beginner hack competition.

The equestrian schedule catered to all ages and abilities, ranging from show horse displays, where judges hunted to find the shaggiest pony, to stock horse events and open showjumping.

There was great competition in the ring for the hack, hunter and showjumping classes, with strong entries recorded.

Competitors came from far and wide, travelling from New South Wales, Victoria and North Queensland to compete against the local riders.

Emily Scrivener, from Walcha, rode into first place for the open six bar jump on her horse Infinity, the only one to successfully navigate the course.

Wallumbilla resident Sam Senescall won the supreme local hack championship on L.P Heart of Gold.

Brock Everingham won the Grand Prix showjump event on Mr Woodward.
