Ms TRISH DOYLE (Blue Mountains) (13:30): In a beautiful and protected valley in the Lower Blue Mountains you will find a small pony club with a very big heart and some talented young riders. I congratulate the members of the Sun Valley Pony Club on their achievements in the State championships in April and July of this year. This little club, with only nine riders, won multiple awards in both championships. Congratulations to the Wild Things mounted games team of Rebecca Moss, Georgia Foley, Isabella Witchard, Clare Jessup and Evie Norris on their achievements.

A very big thank you to president Sheryn Phillips, also to Kelly Heckenberg and Britt Moss for coaching and mentoring their young members and bringing out their abilities. I also recognise the support provided by the parents who volunteer, assist with the set-up and pack down as well as transporting gorgeous young riders and animals alike. It was an honour to visit the club last weekend and present to the girls prestigious New South Wales representative certificates signed by the Premier and me. Well done on a fabulous team effort.
