The neighs have it: $120,000 for Glenreagh Equestrian Club

Horse riding for Clarence kids could become more accessible following the awarding of a $120,000 NSW Government grant to the Glenreagh Kings Park Equestrian Club, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis.

“The new Kings Park Equestrian Club on the banks of the Tallawudjah Creek is an Equestrian NSW affiliated club that aims to be inclusive of all equestrian activities with a calendar that includes kids camps, training days, clinics and competitions,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“The $120,000 will be used to build a roof for the newly developed main arena, which will make it more fit for purpose for activities such as equestrian events, equine therapy, equestrian school excursions, ladies days and other recreational activities.”

The funding comes from the Nationals in NSW Government’s Clubgrants Category 3 Fund, which reinvests part of the tax collected from pokie machines into community projects
