2014 Wonthaggi "Skye Park" West Gippsland State Qualifier Show Jumping Day
SHOWJUMPING SUCCESS AT WONTHAGGI
The Wonthaggi Pony club grounds were a hive of activity on Sunday the 21st September, for the club’s annual Showing jumping day. This event is a Pony Club Association of Victoria State qualifier and part of the “Skye Park” West Gippsland Zone Championship series. The competition comprised of five different Grades with two separate events in each, those being a 2 Phase and 2 Round Championship competition for B, C, D, E & F grade Riders. The top 6 Riders in each competition were awarded a Sash and earned points towards the overall Championship placing. The calibre of riders that turned out to compete on the day were of a high quality and provided spectators with some exciting rounds of Show Jumping to watch. Wonthaggi’s Viv Carfrae riding Bob Conroy took out the C Grade Championship just ahead of fellow Wonthaggi member Carleen Hefel riding Ashmark Phoenix who was the C grade Reserve Champion. Young Wonthaggi Pony Club rider Trinity McInnes riding Echo was the E Grade Reserve Champion. Numerous Wonthaggi Pony club members were rewarded for their efforts and found themselves placing in the events. Course Builder on the day was Jim Brown from Moe and Judges were Paul Dunks and Peter McLean. It turned out to be a busy few days for the Wonthaggi Pony Club with the club also hosting the WGZ Megan Jones Eventing Clinic on Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th September 2014 which was thoroughly enjoyed by all members attending.
