THE COLOURFUL and creative were out in force on Sunday as the Armidale Riding Club held their annual pink ribbon day.
Sequins, feather boas and bunny ears were all part of the fun as the club did their best to bring awareness to breast cancer.
Riding club member Bridget Brennan said the day was a huge success with more than 40 riders turning up to take part.
“I think a lot of people did well,” she said.
“The standard was a lot higher than we have seen for a long time.
“It was a nice family day and nice to see lots of mums and kids there.
“A lot of our club members brought out their inexperienced horses so they were having a good look at some of the costumes.
“Everyone dressed up in pink and if you went there you would have probably thought we were nuts.”
The club host meetings every second Sunday of the month at the equestrian centre.
Brennan said the club has been trying to expand on its dressage roots with an equitation day planned for the August meet.
“So it is looking at another discipline,” she said.
“We don’t just focus solely on dressage.
“We do try to broaden our horizons from time to time.
“We have actually being doing a lot lately which has been good and it is well received.”
“It always makes it much more fun when you have lots of people coming.”
