That’s a wrap! 2016 Ekka had its last equestrian classes for 2016 on Saturday, and Sunday was the last trading day for the 2016 Ekka. There were huge crowds on Saturday, I do believe it would have been the second busiest day of the show!
The day started off a little crisp but it was nice and refreshing after the warm week we have had. The day’s equestrian classes included Australian Stock Horses, Pony Hacks, Show Jumping and Part Bred Welsh Ponies. The major Show jumping was on with the Colin Meagher Memorial Grand Prix Jumping contest, which had Becky Jenkins, Ron Easey and Armani Easey take out the winning places. Congratulations to you all.
Watching the stock horses do their work out was brilliant! Such agile horses, the riders are some of the best out there! These events would not be possible without the support of the Stewards, judges and volunteers. This amazing group of people work so hard to put the shows together and make the days run smooth with little to no delays.
Its very sad to say that it will be another year until we shall return. I hope everyone is tucked up in their own warm beds tonight after what was a huge week for everyone. Congratulations to all who were involved in the running of the 2016 Ekka- Job well done!
