Twenty-month old Lacey Worgan (pictured below) may not be quite old enough to participate in this year’s Bingara Pony Camp but she sure is keen. Being the great-grandaughter of Bute and Beryl Withers means Lacey has Bingara Pony Club running through her veins, making her the fourth generation of Withers to join in on the annual event.
With this in mind, Lacey forms part of the new generation of children coming through who are keeping the Bingara Pony Club thriving – reflected by this year’s camp membership which has seen over 70 riders signed up for the week.
“We are extremely pleased with the number of riders we have this year,” Bingara Pony Club President, Sinclair Munro told the Bingara Advocate.
“We are welcoming many new faces but it is also pleasing to see many familiar faces who have improved in their riding,” he said. “The grounds and facilities are in great condition and we greatly appreciate the support we receive from all our volunteers and parents to make sure the week is successful.”
The week long camp will see riders learning a range of different horse riding skills before competing in a Dressage competition on Thursday, followed by a Campdraft and Hunter Trials on Friday and Gymkhana on Saturday.
The events are open to public spectators.
