Horsemanship club holds open day

NAMBUCCA Natural Horsemanship Club is a group of more than 50 members who meet regularly to practice their horsemanship skills in a non-competitive way.

The club, which has members throughout the Coffs Coast, holds play days, trail rides, camp outs, tournaments and clinics with qualified instructors.

Members range in age from five years old to over 65, with the only prerequisite being the desire to have fun with horses.

The NNHC is holding an Open Day on Sunday, July 20, at the Macksville Showground, and all interested people are invited to attend.

This is a chance for people to come and have a look at what the club does, meet those involved, ask some questions and enjoy a bite to eat.

The day will include a Natural Horsemanship demonstration at 11am.

This will be followed by a free sausage sizzle, tea and coffee.

After lunch there will be a brief discussion on the club and the methods used and there will be the opportunity for people to ask any questions they may have.

A Natural Equipment stall will be operating with merchandise for sale, including rope halters, lead ropes, training sticks, an assortment of books, DVDs and videos.

Secretary Karen Townend said the NNHC mainly followed the program of Parelli natural horsemanship but was open to the techniques of other good natural horsemen.

So if you're keen to have a look, come and meet the Nambucca natural horsemen and women on Sunday, July 20, 11am, at the Macksville Showground.
