EVERYBODY LOCALLY TENDS TO CALL TWEED & DISTRICT SHOWJUMPING CLUB, THE CABARITA CLUB – SINCE IT’S BASED IN THE LOVELY COASTAL TOWN IN NORTHERN NEW SOUTH WALES. IT’S NOT UNKNOWN FOR VISITORS TO THE GROUNDS THERE, TO TAKE THEIR HORSES FOR A RIDE ALONG THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH ONCE THEY’VE FINISHED THEIR HORSE ACTIVITIES.
The Club services far more than its local area. It is as EA registered club, formed in 2014 and with 35 members. The focus, according to Club Secretary Lesley Lang is on showjumping. “We cater for riders wishing to train and school horses from 70cm to 1.30,” she says. “We originally started because of a need to cater for riders in the Tweed and Northern Rivers areas that wished to specialise in jumping and there were no clubs available at the time.” Since the Club has started however, they’ve attracted numerous young riders as well, and last year they held two very successful fullscale competition days, the latest one attracting more than 500 competitors. They will be looking for sponsors once more for the 2018 October Spring Festival.
The Club holds training days once a month, which are advertised on their facebook page
