Arena upgrade begins!
No, those aren’t new members of our herd!
The Jenny O’Malley Arena upgrade has begun.
Todd Cunningham from Equestrian Land Development is working hard to resurface our arena over the holidays.
Thank you to the Queensland Department of Sport ‘Get Playing Places and Spaces’ program and Moreton Bay Regional Council for contributing to the cost of this huge project.
The new surface will incorporate the latest equestrian arena materials, including 2 tonnes of rubber crumb that is kind to both human and equine joints. This will be greatly welcomed because volunteer leaders and side walkers physically support riders while they are on their horses in the arena.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped pull down the old arena fencing this week. A new arena fence will be installed by Dividing Line Fencing in the next week or so.
We can't wait to see the new and improved arena once it is complete!
