We’re kicking off again!

Due to many complications, Horse Agility Australia has been quiet for several months even though numerous groups continue to undertake agility activities.

The good news is that we’re gearing up again for new clubs & groups, new competitions and new activities in 2015. Stay tuned!

Photo comp winners!

Thanks for all the entries into our photo comp. It’s great to see such a variety of fantastic obstacles and the people and horses enjoying them. Thanks for entering.

We had a great response and hope to be able to run more comps in the future.

The winners are:

1st Place goes to Helen Hornsby with her photo of a horse jumping into a float at liberty.

2nd Place is Evelyn Colley and Lief with her photo of Lief jumping onto a truck tyre.

3rd Place is Kathie Cox and Beau with her photo of Beau covered from head to tail in a big scary tarp.

“I like the variety of action shown in the photos, reinforcing that agility is fun for both horse and handler. The variety of obstacles goes to show how imaginative people have been with obstacles and just some of what we get up to with agility” Judges Quote.

Agility promo videos

Horse Agility Australia promo video – Christine putting Macca through some agility obstacles at Spring Creek Park horsemanship centre and Yass agility group.

Horse – Justa Lil King “Macca”, Handler – Christine Randell, Music – Heather Small “Proud”

A fun look at what horse agility is. You can use easy to find items like old tyres, wood from the tip, cheap tarps and door streamers from Bunnings, etc. It doesn’t have to be fancy to be fun. A coat of paint can make anything look good.

Donkey agility

HAA Trainer Lee (Corowa Agility group) says “This is our donkey ‘Sally’ doing a horse agiity course at liberty. She’s not perfect but we had lots of fun doing it! We only used rewards to teach Sally – no pain, fear or intimidation was used, and she remains very friendly towards humans.

Indy’s first agility

Indy did so well, it was great to see how his personality came out during the day, how he became more confident and sure of himself and where his feet were going. And his owner reports he loaded and traveled home really well
