As part of the club’s arena sorting event on Sunday, it presented the proceeds of its fundraising endeavours to Riding for the Disabled.

The club raised $800 for the RDA at their inter-club social event last month.

The two-day event was a huge success, with 150 runs each day.

Saturday was team penning and Sunday arena sorting.

The money was raised through sponsorship – with the major sponsors of the day being Koobah Performance Horse, GDS Heavy Haulage and Penrose Prime Meats – and a gold coin donation for dinner at the social held on the Saturday night.

On Sunday, Kristy Hewitt, Alan Greenham and Paul McCulloch won the open section with 10 head in 1.03.09mins.

They also filled fourth with their run of 1.36.11mins.

The youth division winners were Sydney and Joe Handebo, and Jaren Vigor with four head and a time of 2mins.

Like in the open section, they placed fourth as well.

In the juniors the combination of Oscar Hewitt, Sophie McCulloch and Layne Sheithe were first and second.

Hewitt and McCulloch also teamed up with Caitlin McCurley to take fourth.
