Prince Phillip Mounted Games
5th August 2012
Doongala Pony Club
On Sunday 5th August 10 Doongala Pony Club riders competed at the Prince Phillip Mounted games. There were five riders in the junior team and five riders in the senior team. The senior team consisted of Emma Cameron riding Satin, Amy Blundell riding Hogan, Natalie Hulme riding Muskateer, Sian Fuss riding Paris and Monique Biedrzycki riding Jaffa.
Prior to the event none of the girls besides Emma Cameron had done much games in the past. All riders were out there to give it a go as Doongala have not had a games team in many years.
Everyone had a great time with smiles on their faces. The weather was nice and the rain held up until the event was finished! (yay) The team ended up coming 4th.
Everyone should give games ago as it is great fun and a great competition to do as a team!
