It was a drizzly damp day on Sunday the 5th, but none-the-less we rocked up, saddled up and teamed up for our first training day on our new grounds. Thankfully the 72 foot arena was half sheltered allowing us to continue honing our Working Equitation course skills through the wind and sheeting drizzle!
With thanks to the RDA for the use of their great grounds for our training day; an excellent facility which we hope to utilise into the future for many more club meets!

Our very first Upper Hunter Working Equitation Club meet was a fabulously fun and informative day, enjoyed thoroughly by all as we acquainted ourselves with the working equitation obstacle course, as well as each other and each other’s horses! “Getting to know you… Getting to know all about you…!” That about sums it up! The weather was kind and the turn-out was great with thirteen of our already enlisted members rocking up to have a crack at the course. The day commenced at 8.30 and we finished up at around two-thirty.
Lunch was a fulsome banquet fit for medieval royalty, with fruit platters, salad platters, cold meat, sandwiches and homemade quiches, sweet custard tarts and an assortment of other yummy dishes – too many to list! An impromptu meeting as we munched our lunch served to sort out our shirt sizes, next meet and nut out where we are at as a club and where we are headed.
Our enormous thanks to Kerry Balmer-Smith who hosted the day on her lovely property ‘Kevarty Oaks’ in Wybong, and to her and her team of helpers who put in the tremendous effort required to set up the course; an excellent job, really well done and much appreciated by all who participated. Also a big handshake to all available hands helping to pack-up, which made for an easy and pleasant end of day.
Overall it was a successful, informative and fabulously fun day which we are all keen to repeat again in the very near future!
Our next meet is a Working Equitation Clinic with Kim Peterson on September 24th. This Clinic is now fully booked! For further information regarding this or anything further details about our club please contact our Secretary, Judy Anshaw at firstname.lastname@example.org .
