EQUESTRIANS in the Kiewa Valley have not had a group to ride with for many years, but now the Tawonga Riding Club has been revived and is set to provide group support for anyone wanting help, companionship or advice with their horsemanship.
Club spokesperson Sharon Plummer said that the new club has around ten members so far.
“The club is actually many years old, but it has been dormant for a while, and we are a new group of riders who are determined to get it back on its feet,” she said.
“So far we are meeting monthly at the Tawonga Reserve to have a bit of a ride together, and we are also planning to invite different experts to come and give us horsemanship lessons.
“The club has been formed under the banner of the Australian Trail Horse Riders Association (ATHRA), an Australia-wide leisure trail horse riding organisation that allows its members to ride anywhere that permits horse access and with any ATHRA club.
“This means that our members can travel anywhere in Australia and find a group to ride with, and also that we can organise rides here in the Kiewa Valley,” Ms Plummer said.
