The Gatton Pony Club is saddling up to upgrade their grounds after receiving a boost through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.
The Gatton Pony Club received $6,000 to help with the cost of purchasing and installing a shed to store their equestrian tack and equipment.
President Scott Petrie said the project had been on the club’s wish list for some time.
“The shed will protect and secure our equestrian equipment as well as extend the life of our gear for the future of our club,” Mr Petrie said.
“We aim to provide great facilities for our community. We have 30 riding members and 30 social members who come together for our monthly rallies, annual events and community open days.”
“We encourage locals young and old, beginners and experienced to get involved and learn new skills.”
Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz congratulated the Gatton Pony Club on their success.
“The Club works so hard to promote the sport in the Lockyer Valley and bring the local equestrian community together,” Mr Buchholz said.
“I am proud to be part of a government that supports the initiatives of community-minded groups like the Gatton Pony Club through this grant.”
“I thank them for their continued commitment to the local community.”
