Loxton horse riders are
gearing up for a busy month,
with a range of competitions
and events taking place.
Two Loxton Horse Riding Club
members will compete at the
Wentworth Show this weekend,
while other members are busy pre-
paring for next month's Slack Hack.
Club president and treasurer Lis
Otto said the club was going from
"strength to strength".
"It is definitely getting stronger...
We have a good membership base
now," Lis said. "By the end of the
last financial year, we had 39 mem-
bers on the books."
Johanna Otto and Shannen Ross
will compete in Wentworth this
weekend and are hoping for "great
Last year's Wentworth Show was
a successful meet for the local girls,
with Johanna taking out the cham-
pion novelty horse on her mount,
"I think there is about 20 classes
she had to go into to win it," Lis said.
"She also got reserve champion dres-
sage junior with her horse."
While most of the members are
from Loxton, Lis said there were "a
few" from other Riverland towns.
"We mainly have adult members
and we have our four teenagers that
come all the time. Our members age
from 8 to 65."
Loxton Horse Riding Club mem-
bers will now shift their focus to the
club's annual Slack Hack event on
Sunday, September 15.
"It is based on presentation and
manners. It is kind of like model-
ling with your horse. You have to
have a quiet horse, well mannered
and it is all about presentation,"

The Warriors were in control
from start to finish and will
play in their first grand final
since their 2004 loss to Lyrup.
After a close first term,
Moorook-Kingston kicked the
first three goals of the second
term, with Anthony Pierri look-
ing damaging up forward.
A late goal gave the Redbacks
hope heading into the half time.
BSR came out with more
confidence in the second half,
with Brandon Kurtz dictating
play and Dale Payne getting his
hands on the footy.
BSR kicked five goals to four
and reduced the margin to 12
points at the final change.
Moorook-Kingston, led by
star midfielder Matt Morrell and
defender Sam Hirschi, pulled
away from last year's runner-up
to win comfortably.
Morrell was brilliant as usual
for the Warriors, racking up the
touches in the middle, while
Kym Sampson read the play
across half back.
