Wow what a Tulip Time Gymkhana! There were lots of thrills and a few spills…but luckily the spills are on the mend – thank goodness!!! We had over 80 riders which made the age groups very competitive and there were hard fought battles to win the Age Champions! Without our generous sponsors the Age Champions would not have gone home looking so smart!
A BIG thank you to:
* Sutton Farm Equestrian Centre
* Wes Anderson Farrier (& JC Milton for the Reserve Champion goodie bags!)
* Ian Vaughan Photography
* Ella Bache Bowral
* Lime Building Bowral
* Morris Earthmoving
A BIG thank you to Shan Hawkins for presenting “The Ashes” to Brielle Powell and Tommy for the fastest barrel race time and to Richard Lavender on awarding the Pavlova Memorial Trophy to the Champion of Champions – a well deserved win for Asham Slippery and Abbey Holcombe who have been consistently winning all year!!!
Congratulations to all the Age Champions – Kalea Talman (Cherry Ripe), Erin Brown (under 9s), Abbey Holcombe (9-11), Megan Syme and Lily Quartermaine (11-13), Brielle Powell (13-15), Charlize Kerr (15-17) and Talicia Beardsmore (Assoc).
To the generous businesses who donated fabulous raffle prizes – Onesta, Bendooley Estate, Starlight Browbands, Bowral Co-Op, Forward Coaching and Nature’s Botanical – thank you for your support!
AND…to everyone who came and supported our day – riders, fabulous judges, mums and dads, volunteers and everyone in between, thank you for making the day such a success!
