Autumn weather a win for Two Wells Gymkhana

A lovely autumn day welcomed riders to the annual Two Wells Equestrian and Pony Club gymkhana on Sunday April 11.

Riders from across the zone entered a range of classes, including hacking, showjumping and mounted games.

There was something for all ages and abilities, with a fun Texas barrel event a hit with those who took part.

As well as the traditional hacking and riding classes across two rings, there was the bending, can, and flag and pole races, as well as a popular best trick event for the younger riders.

In the showjumping arena, riders were encouraged to take part at a height that suited them, with the course starting at 30 centimetres and gradually increasing as the day went on.

The highlight of the day for many was the fun Fancy Dress Competition, where everything from Darth Vader, the Bananas in Pyjamas and a bushranger, to a school student, Easter chick and a colourful clown graced the arena.
