Club celebrates a milestone

By Country News

The Cobram and District Pony Club celebrated 80 years of Pony Club Australia on June 2.

The club hosted foundation, past, present and life members but it was a horse named Storm that stole the show, eating some of the cake that was made to mark the celebration.

Jim and Mary Burkitt were awarded ‘Living Legend’ certificates. The Burkitts are life members and founders of the Cobram club.

There were also life membership awards presented to Tony Johnston, Robyn Bosco, Cassandra Neal and Bob Watson.

The day also saw a mini competition, which included a jumping course, agility course without horses and a cross-country event.
