My congratulations and thanks to our students and staff involved in Wagin Woolorama. I had a number of members of the public come to me and commend our students on their manners, behaviour and dress. I also had a local farmer tell me he would employ any Narrogin Ag student because they come so well prepared with work readiness skills and attitudes. It reinforces my view that our students benefit directly from the College reputation and therefore should do nothing that detracts from that reputation.

I would like to congratulate and acknowledge our students who attended Woolorama. Their presentation in uniform was the best I have seen and from reports I have heard, they were excellent representatives of the College.

Woolorama - Horses in Action

It was a quiet year at the “Funorama” games at the Pony Club site on the Saturday Wagin Woolorama. Four of our students chose to compete; Katie Kempton on Quid, Tealah Hawke on Maggie, Holly Nottle on Mango and Tamara Keens on Derry. The students washed, trimmed and polished their horses, tack and uniforms the day before for a professional turnout at the show.

At the event the students were grouped together as Senior Riders for Hacking and then rotated through the Handy Pony course, Games and Show Jumping.

The day began with Hacking and the students had the chance to compete against each other and the public in the following classes; Best Presented, Rider, Hack, Pleasure pony/horse and Novice (a pony/horse that hasn’t won a 1st ribbon on the day).

Once Hacking was completed everyone put their horses in the yards and helped set up the Show Jumping.

The Handy Pony course was ridden first which had competitors testing their skills in mounting, backing, walking over tarps and throwing balls through hoops amongst other skills. The Wagon Wheel and the Diamond Flag Race were the chosen games this year, both are timed events where students had to race against the clock through the course.

The Show Jumping ran this year with classes in Optimum time, which is where the winner is the rider closest to the time stated by the judge to get around the course; and AM7, which is where a course is set up and the rider must clear the course before qualifying for a jump off which is a shorter timed course. It was a great fun filled day with our students winning lots of ribbons and a bag full of prizes each.

The results were as follows:
