Delegate Pony Club held its June rally on Sunday, June 2.

The morning session consisted of flat work and the afternoon session on mounted games in preparation for the upcoming mounted games in Bungendore.

In other news, Shania Caldwell and Lydia Jamieson both represented Delegate Pony Club on Sunday at the Cobargo Gymkhana.

Both girls were in the 10 and under 13 advanced group and had a fun and successful day.

They rode together in the riding pairs where they placed first. Lydia won the E grade AM7 and Shania placed in both the AM7 and AM2 E grade courses.

Shania and Lydia finished off their day by participating in the rescue relay.

Lydia was the 10 and under 13 Age Champion for the day.

Congratulations to both girls. A huge thanks to Cobargo Pony Club for a well organised and fun day.

Meanwhile, on May 26, Amber Butterworth travelled to Bungendore to compete in the Wamboin Mounted Games. Amber was part of a team called the Mix Ups, which was made up of riders from Murrumbateman, Bungendore, Canberra Lakes and Delegate Pony Clubs. Most of the riders in the Mix Ups team met for the first time on the morning of the competition.

After some overnight rain, the day of the competition was cool and slightly windy but the weather held and an enjoyable time was had by all.

It was a good opportunity to catch up with old friends and forge some new friendships. Everyone was happy to share information and Amber has come home with some new techniques to share with other members of her club.
