MORE than $15,000 has been raised for the Breast Cancer Network Australia following a successful special class organised by a Jumbunna family at the Werribee Jeep Australian Show jumping Championships.
The ‘Jump for Support with Moody Racing fundraising class for Breast Cancer Network Australia’ saw 100 riders compete in the event, all in the name of raising much needed funds for the network last fortnight.
Organiser Trish Joyce said the day was a sea of pink with many the riders and their horses donning the colour.
“The riders dressed up in pink and it was fabulous to see their horses made up as well from head to hoof,” she said.
“There were 100 riders in the speed show jumping class on Saturday, September 20 and about 10 riders went fast enough to have a seat in the throne.
“A young girl named Brittany Withers won the Pink class riding King Leo and Airlie Robinson from Bunyip won the award of Most Pink Ladies sprayed on her stallion Mt Robinsons Gwhair.”
The saddle donated by Stubben was auctioned before the class started and raised $4200 and with the silent auction items, entry fees of riders, plus online donations to purchase Pink Ladies the organisers were thrilled with the total amount they were able to raise.
