The Barossa Valley Pony Club has upgraded equipment in part to a Federal Government Grant of $3,000 through the Stronger Communities Program.
Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP visited the Club last week to see the new show jumping equipment.
The old style wings and cups have been replaced by new wings with keyhole tracking into which polypropylene safety cups are slotted. This new style of equipment will become mandatory in time and provides a much safer and user friendly system which we can’t wait to use.
“This funding has helped to ensure the Barossa Pony Club remains sustainable for new and existing members into the future. This new style of equipment will become mandatory in time and provides a much safer and user friendly system for the club,” Mr Pasin said.
Mr Pasin said the Stronger Communities program is aimed at funding projects that deliver social and economic benefits and form part of the Coalition Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen local communities across Australia.
“Our local communities and the community clubs and groups within them are the heart of this country and the investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about just that – strengthening communities and ensuring they have the facilities and the infrastructure to remain vibrant, great places to live into the future,” Mr Pasin said.
