VIDEO: Young talent on show at Chinchilla Pony Club gymkhana


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."
