Riders, horses pretty in pink for annual fundraiser

By Cobram Courier

Cobram and District Pony Club were dressed up for a good cause on October 21 for the annual Pink Day.

In support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the group held activities, competitions and dressed up at the Muckatah Recreation Reserve.

Club president Barb Clarke said the day was about the group giving back to the community.

‘‘A few parents we know of have had breast cancer and so this is a way of supporting them,’’ she said.

‘‘This year it was a good turnout and everyone had a great day. We always have a dress up competition — both horses and people — and everyone had fun.

‘‘We’re always looking at ways we can put back into the community as they’ve helped the club so much.’’

Prizes for best dressed went to Emily Jeffs, Haylee Adams and Ava Morgan-Trease.

A donation will go to the Breast Cancer Foundation.
