DC ~ Equestrian Victoria Distinguished Service Award Winner
This year Club DC Wayne C headed off to the Equestrian Vic EV Sports Awards night ~~ as he was nominated for VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR. He missed out on the award ~ but was presented the EQUESTRIAN VICTORIA DISTINUISHED SERVICE AWARD WINNER!! This was for all his hard work into the sport over the past 20+ years. He received a sash and beautiful trophy from EV, and was presented by the amazing Janet H who is a huge driving force behind the MI3DE.
GAMES, FLAT TEAMS & MUSICAL ZONE & STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS!
This year the Games Zone Championships will be held at the Oaklands PC grounds in October. Final team selection was to be made at the AUGUST RALLY ~ but this has been moved to September!!For those riders not interested in Games, or have multi talented ponies ~ there is also the Flat Team of 4, Pairs & Musical ride competition to go with this also!! So find a pair, or team of 4, and lets get a Flat team to this years event also! The top 2 teams then go onto the PONY CLUB VICTORIA STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS in November!! In the past, our Zone has also been lucky enough to send the 3rd and sometimes 4th place getters also. It is a great way to get the riders together as a Team, and in the past ~ we have done extremely well at Zone Level, and well at State. There are months of practice left, so lets get some teams ready and take on the Zone & State in 2017!!
McKenzie Park Equestrian Centre Rallies
Thanks to Danni V the Club have been able to have a couple of rallies this year at McKenzie Park Equestrian Centre ! The June rally (as we also had no access to WPNEC) we were able to hold a Kevin Salt Natural Horsemanship Rally in the Indoor. Then the August rally was moved due to the wind, then changed to unmounted due to the storms (that both didn't arrive!!) but we had an awesome morning session with Kirsty Swinton ~ Equine Dynamics ~ which included Horse Bones!! Both days were amazing and great to learn different aspects of the Equestrian Sport!!
Thanks to Danni for organsing these and for use of these amazing facilities!
The 2017 Rally dates can be found on the Club FB page. The October Rally has been moved , due to an event on at the venue, we will have no access to the grounds. if you are looking for events to compete at, the PCAV calendar is the place to check out!!
Werribee PC Facebook page
The Club has their own FB Page ~ which has lots of links and pictures, results, rally details, updates and more. Make sure to follow the page and check it regularly to see what is going on.As this site will be dismantled due to PCV doing an upgrade on the Websites, we will not be putting up new photos until the fancy new websites arrive!!
Have you been in the Clubrooms recently?? Looking different!! Well the extension and kitchen has had a MASSIVE clean out!! HUGE!! So lets work together to keep it clean!! Put away tables and chairs every rally! Throw your rubbish in the bin! And thanks for the offer ~ but no thanks ~ we do not need any left over furniture for the rooms! We still have to clean out the container and add more photos to the walls, so it is still a work in progress, but more will be done after the Horse Trials!
Some more new faces at rallies!! Welcome to Aimee D & Madi !! Thanks for making the girls feel so welcome! Don't forget ~ if you see any of these riders out competing ~ give them a hand if needed! :) And bring a friend to Pony Club to show them what happens and how much fun they can have with their Friends and ponies!
