Thanks Be To The Men’s Shed!!

“…’Twas ne’er loving that emptied the heart; Nor giving that emptied the purse…”

A very old quote, yet ever still relevant today!  It is so lovely to see small community organisations supporting each other and never was it more evident than when our President, Natasha Kelaher and Vice President, Kerry Balmer-Smith put out the call for a helping hand to build us some obstacles for the UHWEC Working Equitation obstacle course!

Our cozy little club would like to give a very hearty (though somewhat belated!!) thankyou and cyber-hug to both the Upper Hunter and Denman Men’s Sheds, without whom we would not be able to be holding the great training days that we have to date!

Bridge & Gate
With thanks to the Upper Hunter Men’s Shed, diligently crafting our Gate & matching Bridge!

These undaunted souls worked tirelessly and heartily for many months to very detailed specs and requirements to build us two brilliant bridges and one superb gate for our Working Equitation ‘Ease Of Handling’ and ‘Speed’ courses!

These items are beautifully crafted, safe for our horses and look just fabulous!

With thanks to the Denman Men’s Shed for our beautiful wooden Bridge!

We are well on our way now to having a complete course of obstacles (just need our website guru to get off her computer and onto a jigsaw to finish our bull!).  With just a few obstacles to go we are inching ever forwards (albeit it slowly!) to being able to hold our own club comp!

Meanwhile our ongoing club Event Days; Training days and Clinics; are chugging away nicely, with ever-increasing membership numbers and at least one club event being held per month!

Have a browse through our Galleries to see what we’ve all been up to and check out our Club Event Calendar to see what goodies we’ve got coming up.  To enter an event or join our club, jump onto TryBooking and use the forms on our Membership page.

Any probs or queries, you can contact Judy Anshaw, our club Secretary, here.

Remember, the best way to train is simply to put yourself and your horse out there and have a go!  The Nominate website constantly features an up to date and comprehensive list of upcoming WE Competitions held by fellow Working Equitation Clubs across Australia, so get your entry in and have a crack!

Warning.  This sport is highly addictive.  May contain irresistible equine eye-candy.
