Member for Orange, Phil Donato MP on Tuesday 18th December announced the Canowindra Pony Club’s successful application for funding through the Local Sport Grant Program, administered through the Office of State Sport.
“I’m pleased to announce the Canowindra Pony Club will receive $5,000 for the purchase of cross country jumps,” Mr Donato said.
“Like all good sporting clubs, the Canowindra Pony Club provides enjoyment and socialisation for members of the community and in particular, young people,” said Mr Donato.
Vice President of the Canowindra Pony Club, Mrs Tamara Pearce, said “I am just over the moon and ecstatic to receive this grant for the club. This grant means so much to us and we will now be able to go ahead and order cross country jumps at two varying heights for our members to use,” Mrs Pearce said.
“This will open up a lot of opportunities for the 50 members of Canowindra Pony Club aged 6-17 years old as we can now offer Cross Country Jumping,” said President Rebecca Brown.
