Bass Valley Pony Club members Chantelle Petrie, Angela Utano and Grace O’Neill received valuable racing saddle tips from special guest Lisa Coffey from the Victorian Racing Club at a recent rally in Woolamai.
WITH facility upgrades currently underway, now is a great time to introduce your child to Bass Valley Pony Club (BVPC).
The small, friendly group meets regularly at the eastern end of Woolamai racecourse.
The club is committed to providing a variety of experiences for local children to learn all aspects of horsemanship.
There are qualified instructors each month to teach dressage, show jumping and games.
The club also has guest instructors regularly to cover a variety of other disciplines such as track riding and western pleasure, horsemanship and animal husbandry, and holds an annual trail/beach ride and Gymkhana.
BVPC is in the process of upgrading its facilities, including a new enclosed arena, and renovation of the cross country course.
A not-for-profit club run entirely by volunteers, BFPC is seeking support from interested community members prepared to donate time and expertise, with equipment for weed spraying, slashing, grading/earth moving and moving large jumps.
Members are also appreciative of any donations to the club to help raise more funds for the upgrade.
Rallies are held on the third Sunday of each month, with August 17 the next scheduled date.
The club offers a ‘come and try’ session at a cost of just $10 to cover insurance, although horses are not provided.
