We had campers and competitors from our zone as well as neighbouring zones. Three rings were in action. The day started with the Light Horse Team of Four event, proudly sponsored by the Sixth Light Horse Trundle Troop. This year it was won by Trundle Pony Club. Tom Lees and Tony McGrath presented the trophies to the winning riders on behalf of the Sixth Light Horse Trundle Troop. This year saw the fifth running of the Karen Grady Memorial Bending Race. This was the five fastest riders of the day qualifying to ride off against each other.  With the race being a combination of speed and accuracy, crossing the line first was Ellie Glasson (Forbes PC) on Andy followed by Megan Pearce (Trundle PC) on Ruby, then a previous winner Tiarne Rusten (Trundle PC) on Ruby, Jorja Rusten (Trundle PC) on Shadow, also a previous winner, then Fraser Gill (Narromine PC) on Zach. The sashes and trophy were then presented on behalf of Kristen’s late mother Karen. Congratulations to all our competitors
