Hawkesbury Riding Club is gearing up for the first Seniors Equestrian Games, which will be one of the biggest events for the season.
This inaugural equestrian competition on Saturday, April 22, will be hosted at Hawkesbury Riding Club grounds in Clarendon.
The club, which boasts of a proud history, is welcoming participants from all over NSW to vie for the honours of being the first champions in the different categories.
The Seniors Equestrian Games include dressage, show jumping and hacking.
Hawkesbury Riding Club president Wendy Pike said she was delighted with the inaugural event, which will attract experienced competitors from around the state.
“We are thrilled with being awarded a grant by Seniors Council NSW to run an equestrian festival exclusively for the 60s and over, plus riders 50 and over who hold a disability card.”
There will also be two clinics during the Seniors Equestrian Games. Dressage trainer Judy Dierks will be giving one on one riding lessons and Rebecca Ashton, a qualified Pilates instructor is hosting a floor pilates clinic (unmounted) in the clubhouse.
“HRC would love to see you there, either as a competitor or simply to watch and enjoy what is sure to be a very pleasant day, but no dogs are allowed,” a club spokeswoman said. “Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.”
