LAST Saturday's Miniature Horse Show at Widgee was a resounding success and a triumph for organiser Robert Spriggs and his merry band of cohorts.

While the miniature horses thrilled the crowds, owners and handlers were delighted with the facilities and amenities available on site.

WINNER: Supreme Miniature Horse at last Saturdays MHAA Show was Kamelco Park Rebel Chasing Amazing Grace owned by Claire ORilley of Childers, who was presented with her trophies and prizes by judge Steve Thake of Woolooga.

Every horse competing was presented with a ribbon and there were great prizes won on the day.

Supreme Miniature Horse of the Show was awarded to Kamelco Park Rebel Chasing Amazing Grace, owned by Claire O'Rilley, of Childers, while the Supreme Show Jumper was won by Beau Chevals Playboy, owned by Karen Williams and Carol Booker of Gympie.

Craft group

IT WAS pandemonium at Widgee Craft Group this week with bits and bobs of fabric every which way you looked, plus scissors aplenty, lots of calico squares, rolls of baking paper and appliqué sheeting used to attach and bind cut-outs ready for sewing.

Next week it's Christmas decorations with Lynlie with all materials supplied.

For more information contact president Alice Burke on 5484 9156 or drop on in for a quick visit. The kettle is always on the boil and there's always something to share with a relaxing cuppa.
