Day three of the Equestrian classes at the 2016 Ekka was dedicated to Show Ponies, Hacks and Show Jumping. The morning show pony classes featured the beautifully presented led ponies displaying some stunning types. The hack classes were full of top riders from everywhere all competing for the chance to win either Champion Qld Hack or the prestigious Highbury Memorial Cup, and what a show they put on.
Over on the other side of the oval were the courageous show jumpers who have no fear- jumping huge jumps with the crowds watching and cheering on. The excitement from the crowd when there is a clear round was thrilling.
We’re looking forward to what day 4 has to offer with Warmbloods, Hunters, Shetlands, heavy horses and more to be on show.
