New jackets a ‘stand out’ for Pony Club Maleny Pony Club members are now a little better decked out thanks to the support of Maleny IGA’s Community Benefits Club (CBC.)

PR Manager for the club, Sandy Boulton says people everywhere notice the bright green jackets bought with the latest round of CBC funding.  “When we’re out at events, the jackets really stand out. It’s easy to spot the ‘Maleny People!”

The Pony Club has been a strong and active part of the Maleny community since the 1960's. “We have almost 80 members now and they receive excellent tuition from regular musters and clinics. We’re also fortunate to have very good facilities and equipment.”

Sandy is quick to point out how the funding through Maleny IGA has really benefitted the Pony Club.  “Our first round of funding from Maleny IGA’s CBC bought hats for the members. Now the jackets have been a welcome (and warm) addition. We were able to pay a little bit extra to get better quality ones and the members love them!”

“We’re really grateful to have funds sitting there to tap into when we need to – and to use however we wish. Sometimes we forget about it, then when something comes up we remember we can ‘draw down’ some or all of our CBC funds.”  To date, the club has received over $9,000 and members are strong supporters of the local business that supports them.  “I always shop at Maleny IGA” boasts Sandy. “When you mention your CBC number at the checkout, you know that your money is going towards something you’re connected and involved with in the community.”

Maleny Pony Club holds monthly musters and many of their riders compete regularly and widely with great success at various pony club events. The club welcomes new members – just visit their website
