Extreme club is going for gold with upcoming championships
WITH just three months under their buckles, the newly formed Southern Cross Extreme Cowboy Racing Club is going from strength to strength.
On the back of performing at the QSEC Home Show at the weekend, founder and president Natasha Webber said the group had already grown to 50 members and iconic horseman Guy McLean has come on board as a Youth Division and Show Sponsor.
The club has also secured International clinician Magen Warlick for a two-day clinic on Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21, with championships to follow on Sunday.
"Magen is also judging our Queensland Regional Championship … this is our very first," Ms Webber said.
"We will be doing this every year. This will help our EXCA members earn points towards qualifying of Nationals in Ballarat and then eventually qualify for worlds in Texas, USA.
"We have already received a large amount of entries. People are coming from as far away as Agnes Waters.
"Not bad for a club that's only been going for three months."
The championships will start at 8am and is open to all members and on Members of SCXCR and EXCA. Ribbons and prizes will be up for grabs
The day will finish off with the official EXCA Sanctioned Show, where EXCA Members compete for points, buckles, ribbons and prizes.
