A busy month for equestrians

The Sunshine Coast Equestrian Club has a busy schedule of events coming up in September to wrap up the show season, starting with a general meeting on Sept. 11 at Roberts Creek School at 6:30 p.m. New members are always welcome and the club would like to hear about clinics, guest speakers or events that our local equestrians are interested in having organized for next year. 

Upcoming events scheduled at the club grounds are listed below and registration deadlines and fees can be found on the website (sunshinecoastequestrian

The arena is in great shape with new dust-free footing that was appreciated by all who attended the recent Working Equitation clinic on Aug. 24 and 25. Clinician Darcy Henkel was fresh back from her trip to Alberta and the Cross National Cup, where Canada was host to competitors from the U.S., Australia and New Zealand and she had lots of good tips for the riders. It was a fun weekend of learning and development for both horse and rider and everyone’s skills improved over the two days. It was easy to see why this discipline is quickly growing in popularity around the world and plans are to host more clinics and shows locally in the future.
