WUDINNA residents might have wondered what was happening as horses, camper vans etc occupied the west of Ceduna in the pony club grounds.
Wudinna Le Hunte Pony Club hosted the 2016 annual Eyre Peninsula Pony Club Zone School.
Thirty horses and riders attended, travelling from towns across the Eyre Peninsula includingCeduna, Port Lincoln and Kimba to take part in fourdays of instruction.
The pony club zone school is an excellent opportunity for young pony riders across the Eyre Peninsula to gather and learn new skills together and build strong bonds.
Instructors were Belinda Arnold ofWaikerie andAnn Olsen ofWudinna who stepped in at the last minute as the other instructor was unable to come due to ill health.

The classes rotated lesson times each day.
