A HEAVY horse carriage driving event has helped to boost the profile of the Murrumbidgee Carriage Driving Club.
The event was held at the Murrami sportsground recently with competitors travelling from across the region to take part.
The club is looking to build its membership base in the coming months, with many activities and carriage driving events planned.
There was also a light horse competition on the day, with club member Gail Habermann hoping to extend the club's reach.
She said competitors were put through their paces on the day.
"There was a gambler's choice cones competition where you pick your own line and you get points for each set of cones you go through," Mrs Habermann said.
"Everyone had a go at that, which was really good fun.
"After that the heavy horses took part in an obstacle, log snig and pumpkin snatch.
"That was all about using them how they would have been in the olden days."
Michael Jones took out the heavy horse event and Robyn Schmetzer the light horse section.
Competitors travelled from Wagga, Ardlethan and Coleambally to take part, with an event planned for next month to attract more participants.
"We'll be having a 'come and try' day at the Griffith Showgrounds on July 29," Mrs Habermann said.
