Pony club back after a two-year hiatus

FOR 16-year-old Demi Robinson, riding horses is her life.

"I do distance (education) from home, so I ride horses and base my life around horses," Demi said.

"I did that to work around the horses, so I had more time to get them all worked.

"Horses are my passion, it's my life basically."

Demi first joined the Mundubbera Horse and Pony Club when she was seven years old.

"I was in it for a fair few years before it died down, which was sad, but it was always a load of fun," she said.

"I'm really proud of the club, it's such a great place for kids to learn, it's very communal and good fun.

"I have so many great memories with friends here."

The club restarted on Sunday May 22 after being inactive for about two years.

Club president Mark Trott said the come and try day on Sunday had a good turnout and went well.

"It was a good rollout for the first day getting going again," Trott said.

"We started again as there were a few people keen who had young kids.

"We'll have a few more rallies like today and get a bit more organised."

As for Demi, she said she is excited to see the club back on its feet and will give others a helping hand when needed.

"I really like seeing it up and running," she said

"I'm happy to always come and help, I don't have to bring a horse, and I'll come and do whatever they need.

"Let's see if we can get a good club together again."
