We awoke once again to stunning blue skies for day 5 of the Ekka Equestrian classes. We started the day with the famous Australian Ponies, what a great pony they are! So versatile and quiet types, great for kids and light harness.
We also had the Galloways in the ring today displaying a world of elegance for the crowds. As the afternoon approached the grandstand was looking forward to the Arabian Derivatives in both the led classes and ridden. Whilst the crowds were waiting they were able to sit back and watch the gentle giants in the heavy harness with all their bells and whistles, and the kids LOVED being able to get up close and have a pat of the mounted police horses who were patrolling the ring.
As the dark storm clouds rolled over it was the end of another amazing day at the 2016 Ekka.
