Giddy-up: riders wanted
IF YOU need somewhere to horse around this long weekend look no further than Bilambil Valley.
The Terranora Lakes Equestrian Club will hold its Easter all-breeds show from 9am this Monday.
Secretary Kylie Marr said the club, nestled behind the Jets Sports Field on Bilambil Rd, is growing and hoping to take on a more Western feel.
“We haven’t had an all-breeds show for a long time,” Ms Marr said.
“We usually have hacks or gymkhanas. We are trying to get more of a Western feel into the shows.”
Ms Marr said the non-profit, volunteer-run club was raising money to maintain the grounds.
“We’re trying to raise more money to upgrade our jumps and our cross-country just to offer that extra opportunity to people who have horses,” she said.
“Anyone can come and ride who’s got their own horse which is vaccinated against hendra.”
She said new members could sign up on the day.
“We’re also helping the Tweed Valley Western Performance Club at Piggabeen,” she said.
“We’re really just trying to give the community more riding options in a really relaxed environment.”
She said the club catered for all riding levels.
“Bring your horse and have fun,” she said.
Please note: the equestrian club is located next to the Jets Sports Field between the Hogans Rd and Biral Cl intersections.
