Pony club moves in right direction
SINCE the late 70s, Queens Park was home to the Bundaberg Horse and Pony Club. Now almost 30 years on, the club is now hanging its hat at the Agro Trend Grounds.
Although members were sad to farewell the familiar grounds, club vice-president Jenny Stockham says the move has had a positive impact on the club and the community.
“We have had a few new members join since we’ve been at Agro Trend. It’s been great. Times have changed, and we might as well go with it and move ahead,” she said.
Jenny says a construction date still hasn’t been set but the club has been given facilities to provide a safe environment for its members.
“We have been given a show jump arena, several dressage arenas and the council has given us a canteen to use,” she told the NewsMail.
Jenny says the club has high hopes for the new facility, hoping to eventually build a bigger and better equestrian centre.
“In the future we are talking about an indoor arena and will incorporate riding for the disabled.”
