Exciting times ahead for Dayboro Pony Club as our home, the Dayboro Showgrounds, gets some welcome TLC.
The first half of the year will see floodlights, new stock proof fencing and yards, giving us opportunities to hold a wider range of events in the cooler part of the day. Following this will be updated amenities and a multi-purpose function centre being built overlooking the rodeo arena.
Whilst there will be some disruption to some activities all our annual events, the gymkhana and show jumping, will be going ahead.
Thank you to the Show Society and our club representatives who worked hard to secure the grant from the Federal Government making this dream a reality.
Our muster dates are on our web page calendar and generally posted as events too. Instructors love to know who’s coming so they can plan relevant activities.
Please remember our instructors and the officials at all pony club events are volunteers. A smile, a thank you and a helping hand go a long way to keeping clubs and events running. If you need to leave muster early, let someone know; if you need to leave the grounds while your children are riding, ask someone to act as their nominated guardian who will supervise them until you return. In extreme circumstances, (we all know horse-riding can be dangerous) the nominated guardian may have the responsibility of making medical decisions. Make yourself aware of rules and expectations; if you’re not sure, ask.
The club belongs to its members; new and renewing members are encouraged to discuss new ideas at the meetings, held the third Tuesday of the month, drive new initiatives, take over committee roles and generally be active members.
This year, alongside the infrastructure changes, we are playing with the idea of an Open show jump evening; we would like to add to our new cross-country jump collection; we are hoping to modify the equipment shed to accommodate a new trailer specifically designed for show jumps – if you have ever seen a bunch of people, usually females, lying on the grass kicking trailer wheels to steer it into the shed with millimetres to spare, you will know why this is so important.
All these ideas need time from club members – if you can offer your skills, your club will thank you!
Bring on 2018!
