Jingellic Pony Club, Zone 20 meets every first and third Sunday of the month at the picturesque Jingellic Show Grounds on the mighty Murray River NSW. The club has been running for 2.5 years after being in recession for quite a few years and currently has approximately 24 riding members ranging in age from 3 to 19 and 22 non-riding members who are our valued volunteers.
The club offers instruction in the following disciplines; Dressage, Show Jumping, Cross Country, Sporting, Mounted Games, Horse Soccer and Horsemanship, just to name a few, as well as lessons in proper horse care and safety. A typical rally day involves gear check with a 10am start, troop drill warmups for both horse and rider and flat riding for the morning. BBQ and group gathering for lunch, then mounting back up in the afternoon for Show Jumping and Sporting. Other fundraising or social events run at Jingellic Pony club include selling hot dogs at the annual Tumbarumba Races, manning the gates at the Tumbarumba Rodeo and Jingellic Show, street stalls selling sausage sizzles and home cooked goodies, and our annual Gymkhana held in early November.
The best thing about being a member of Jingellic Pony Club is the lifelong friendships formed for both children and adults, our rally days are always a lot of fun, and also the great sportsmanship the Jingellic riders show at all events and rallies they attend, this makes the club very proud.
