With more than 250 rounds of competition there were classes catering from the more professional to the amateur rider at the Korumburra Showgrounds over the weekend.
Korumburra society member and key organiser Vivienne Carfrae whose family is well known for its contribution to the show jumping sport locally said the turnout had been exceptional.
“Although we clashed with another show jumping event in Shepparton, we have had a fantastic turnout with people here from all over the State,” she said.
“We try to provide a range of classes for the diverse kind of riders at a reasonable entry price. This classic a great way for upcoming riders to hone their skills.
“Like every volunteer group its always challenging getting support on the day but we have a great community and our sponsors including Kiernan Plant Hire have been amazing.”
