Bororen's show of top horsemanship

HORSES: Bororen's annual Sporting Gymkhana event on Sunday went without a hitch.

Conditions were perfect for the riders who travelled from as far as Biloela, Bundaberg, Calliope, Captains Creek, Goovigen, Miriam Vale and Tannum Sands to compete on the day.

Bororen Pony Club secretary Karen Ogilvie said the event was well supported.

"We may be just a small dot on the map, but Bororen held their own at the local Gymkhana,” she said.

"The atmosphere was fun and friendly among the riders and the impressive display of sportsmanship across all clubs could be heard through shouts of encouragement across the arena supporting.

"(It was) not just the riders' own club but all clubs despite competition.”

Ogilvie said the event could not be held without the help from a lot of volunteers.

"Once again a big thank you to all our competitors for making the effort and sharing the day with us.”
