Grade 8 Scotch Oakburn student Grace Prewer co-ordinated a horseback scavenger hunt on Saturday, October 7, at the Pegasus Riding Club.

The Western Junction club played host to the event, which saw two groups set off on a treasure hunt around the riding school.

Miss Prewer said she ran the event as a part of a school project.

“My mum and her friends started Pegasus, and the club helps a lot of disabled people,” she said. 

“The event is to raise money to install new lights at the club.”

The riding school caters for disabled riders, with 20 per cent of riders at the school facing a disability.

Club founder Susan Prewer said the club accepts riders of all ages and abilities.
