The Power of Pink Dressage & Show Jumping Spectacular
October 10, 2015 @ 8:00 am - October 11, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
Tweed Valley Equestrian Group is holding a Breast Cancer Fundraiser this year, “The Power of Pink Dressage & Show jumping Spectacular” on the 10th & 11th of October at the Murwillumbah Showground. The event now in its sixth year was awarded “Community Event of the Year” by Tweed Shire Council in 2011. So far we have raised just over seventeen thousand dollars for Breast Cancer Research.
There were over 125 entries with riders coming from Port Macquarie to Brisbane entering last year’s event. We had prizes to the winners in all divisions but also fun prizes for the Pinkest Horse, Pinkest Rider and “Pretty in Pink” best dressed horse and rider in pink. All riders had a fantastic day with smiles everywhere you looked. There was also a large division of junior riders (all girls) and we hope that from a young age we can help them understand the importance of being aware of this disease that affects so many women. Dressage is often a very serious sport, so to see every rider with a splash of pink or more somewhere was fantastic.
Breast Cancer will touch so many of our lives, family and friends and as dressage being mainly dominated by women; we thought this event is a perfect way to raise awareness and a fun way to raise money for such a worthy cause.
With excitement building for this year’s event already, we’re aiming for ten thousand dollars to donate
