24th Chicken Run in Burradoo

Despite rain showers, the annual 24th Chicken Run proved to be a popular event.

Around 140 entrants took part in the horsing riding event on June 10 at the Berrima District Pony Club grounds.

The event is a major fundraiser for Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) Moss Vale.

The RDA aims to provide people with a disability the opportunity to take part in horse riding.

Event organiser Angus Malcolm described the Chicken Run as a “feel good event.”

“It gives people who wouldn’t usually compete the chance to do so,” he said.

Riders were judged on time, dressage style and their accuracy in show jumping. 

$6000 was raised on the day from ticket sales, canteen purchases and a raffle.

This brings the total raised since 1995 to around $120,000.
