Trip of a lifetime for Eugowra rider

Eugowra local Olivia Holland has returned from a Pony Club experience of a lifetime in China in early June.

Olivia joined five other riders from around Australia and a Pony Club Australia coach in a trip to Nanjing in the Jiangsu province of China from May 23 to June 3.

As part of the trip, Olivia participated in riding sessions with locals as well as friendly competition in showjumping and gymkhana.

"It was a trip of a life time and I encourage all riders to submit an application form and take the opportunity," Olivia said.

Along with spending time at the riding school, Olivia and the other visiting riders were able to squeeze some sightseeing into their trip, visiting the Confucius Temple, Nanjing Wall and Niushou Mountain.

Olivia said she would like to thank all the mums, coaches, Jen Mainland, Pony Club Australia and Eugowra Events and Tourism for giving her the opportunity to make new lifelong friends and allowing her to see a different part of the world.
