Camp all fun and games for riders

THEIR end-of-year camp proved to be an out-of-the-ordinary experience for members of the Hervey Bay Active Riders.

Swimming laps of the horses’ bath tubs, dressing up as unicorns and lollipops and singing the night away with karaoke was all part of the weekend’s entertainment.

Organisers say the highlight of the two-day event, held last weekend at the clubs Lower Mountain Road grounds, was the fancy dress competition, which saw Harmony Mills aptly dress her adorable pony Lollipop as an actual lollipop and princess Cassie Nolan hoofed it on her unicorn Twistie.

Sunday’s activities took another twist with a horse back water treasure hunt, horse shoe throwing, apple eating and jelly baths.

Even the president didn’t get away scot free after being attacked by water bombs.
