The first in a series of training clinics were held over the weekend at Nana Glen, Coffs Harbour with coach Peter Gillis in preparation for the Thoroughbred Industry Careers Pony Club National Championships in 2019.

Many of the riders were from regional and rural New South Wales where it can be difficult to access experienced coaches. Christine Campbell, president of Corindi Pony Club said “To be able to have international level coaching in the regional areas for these talented country kids is just amazing.”

From all reports it sounded like a fantastic weekend with riders taking home lots of ideas, and are looking forward to the next round of training clinics in Sydney, Denman and Gundagai in early 2019.

With Tetrathlon being offered as a discipline in next years National Championships, the training weekends are a great opportunity for some of our riders to learn what it’s all about. Pony Club NSW has secured a number of laser pistols to be used in the training weekends so riders can perfect their skills.

If you are interested in gaining a spot of the NSW team, nominations for the Long List close on the 1st March 2019, forms can be found on the Nationals Events page of our website.
