School holidays and warm weather means plenty more time in the saddle for young riders and that is exactly what Guyra’s Pony Clubbers did last week when they headed to Bundarra for a five-day mini-camp. 

The club is brimming with youngsters who were able to make the trip and brush up on their riding skills in the flat work, dressage, jumping and sporting events. 

There was also the opportunity for special Easter egg and treasure hunts aboard their mounts. 

The mini-camp rounded out with a gymkhana on the final day to put the skills they learned through the week to the test. 

Parents of children who attended the camp said the Bundarra club members were very welcoming of the Guyra people and created a friendly environment for the participants over the course of the event. 

The next activity for Guyra Pony Club will be the annual Anzac Gymkhana in Uralla.

Riders will compete in rider classes, pairs and bareback, as well as various sporting events.
