BENDEMEER PONY CLUB (Zone 5) is the Club of the Month for August. The Club has won themselves $1,000 worth of product from Horseland. This prize includes dressage cones, lunging equipment, an Equestrian computer game, bandages, books, training aids and other exciting resources. All past non winning entries will be considered for September Pony Club of the Month.
Bendemeer Pony Club's entry is as follows:
As quoted by one of our 8yr old members who recently attended Manilla Blanch Trophy Day - Alexandra Wilkes' response to a comment by someone attending the day that they hadn't seen anyone from Bendemeer in ages - Dotty replied " Look out Bendemeer is Back".
And we are back in business. After a successful camp and an increase in numbers and having the community behind us to inject more activities in the town for people to come and watch and maybe get involved in on a volunteer basis - well lets just say we are doing it. We are motivated, active and achieving results with those of our members who are competitive. Two of our members recently received Under 7 led boy and girl rider accolades at Kootingal.
Our club has been pulled out of the realms of near extinction to being upwardly motivated and moving forward with many new people and people transferring to our club because they have taken a liking to the positive attitude of the club. We are focused on the achievements of the children, no matter how great or small. My 5 year old daughter recently went off the lead at our last rally day, only to 'ride off' with the rest of the group on a trail ride. This was thanks to the supportive attitude of our senior riding members and showing the kids that they ' can do it'.
I love Bendemeer Pony Club as you can probably tell. It is family friendly, community orientated and committed to the learning and skill building of the kids that belong to it.
