Looking back - The day Ern galloped by

December 08, 2017

Ern Barker, former Australian Olympian equestrian rider, explained to the Kyabram Pony Club members various ways to tie up a horse when he visited Kyabram in September 1980.

MEMBERS of the Kyabram Pony Club received a treat one Sunday in September 1980 when former Australian Olympian equestrian rider Ern Barker from Berwick visited the club (pictured right).

The popular champion horseman provided many valuable hints for members during the day.

The names I have been told who are in the photograph are the following: Michael and Kim Whitford, Dianne and Rosyln Feldtmann, Jamie Underwood, Lara and Paul Milvain and Di Curnow. Gordon Fitzgerald is standing in the background.
