Riding into New Upgrades in Narrandera

Narrandera Pony Club riders and horses will soon be enjoying upgraded riding facilities, following $134,000 in funding from a NSW Government grant.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the upgrade would create a safe and enjoyable environment to train and compete.

“This project includes the purchase of portable cross-country jumps, a specialised tractor to help with jump installation and other general maintenance to ensure Narrandera Pony Club can continue to be a high quality public equestrian facility,” she said.

“It is essential that riders have the opportunity to practice at a facility that provides a high riding standard.”

Club Secretary and Treasurer Helen Langley said Narrandera’s cross-country course is regionally significant, explaining: “We’re the only cross-country course in southwestern NSW that is very accessible to the public, this grant means that riders will be able to practice jumps of a suitable technical difficulty."

“There are cross country courses at Wagga and Albury but unfortunately the times are limited, whereas ours is open to the public all the time.”

The project is one of 22 across NSW,being funded through the latest round of the Clubgrants category 3 Infrastructure Grants program.
