Parkes Pony Club members had a day of fun and games for their special mini Olympics day on October 9.

From lead lines to the more experienced riders, the members played special mounted games included mounted ball throwing, bending races in pairs, watched a dressage display by two of the members and took part in a 9 jump showjumping course.

The members also enjoyed some unmounted games during the lunch break.
