Become a Sponsor or Donate to the Club

New sponsors are always welcome. 

Without sponsors the club would not be able to donate as much money to charity or hold the bush picnic race meeting.

There are seven levels of sponsorship or donations and those are PLATINUM, GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE, INDIVIDUAL and PRIVATE. Our latest sponsors are placed on their own page for people to see their patronage, Address, Phone Numbers and a link back to websites where available.

While we would prefer Cash Sponsorship we are happy to accept gift donations which we use for raffles and auctions for funds towards the next races to continue and also to be able to give to the many Charities in need in the local district.

Club Profile

Secretary Profile: Lee-Anne Bright

I have a full time job governessing - teaching on the Menindee-Ivanhoe road. I have governessed for the last 15 years in 3 different states on 8 different school for 14 families.
I also run my own business called Governess Australia ; this includes a consulting and job advertising service. It is also expanding in the next 2 years to include a small shop.
When not living at my work home I spend my school holidays at my parent's property, Kimberley Station.

In the past 14 years I have worked for many non-profit organisations, including school P&C's, ICPA and governess organisations. My major achievement was the setup of a support group which entailed the writing of a role statement and policies for the group as well as running training and induction sessions.

Through this community experience I have held many positions on committees including president, chairman, vice president, secretary, webmaster, quarterly magazine editor, and sub-committee organiser.

My grandfather was one of the founding members of the race club which started because of a love of horses, community and a desire to help the war effort.

Through actions and words he taught me that no one person owns the club, we represent the members.

For his part to ensure the club's survival a section of Kimberley was given to the race club for a home base.

My own dedication and passion for the club comes from a life long family involvement and a love of history.
I have been entrusted with the role of the honourable Secretary and being part of the new generation comes with great responsibility.
With that responsibility placed in my hands I believe

•  that we must continue to make improvements and build for the club's future.
•  that every action or idea requires considerable thought and research to ensure the club is presented with the best opportunity for the future.
•  we must not remain stagnant otherwise we will disappear.

I would like to make sure I leave the club in good stead for the future, so that it can continue on long after my family is gone.

Past Committee Profiles...

2011 Assistant Secretary - Georgie Donohoe

I am a 38 year old mum of two teen boys and currently a full time employee of NOVA Employment.

I have been in love with riding horses and learning all I can about them for the majority of my life. I have recently become very interested in joining in the Gymkhana circuit and getting involved in as many group riding sessions as I possibly can. I have a big TB Gelding which I got off the track due to injury for a song, to me he is worth every penny. His race name is Sinaloa and his sire is Desert King (Ireland 1994) and Dam is The Padreen (Australia 1993). I decided to use him as a trail riding horse and maybe have some fun every now and again in events.

I grew up in the bush and lived on Coally Station for a time and then moved to Broken Hill to a small farm on the outskirts of town. I am now what you would call a towny, but my heart lies in the wide open spaces and the beautiful bush of our surrounding district.

I do a lot of voluntary work and I have a strong belief in making things better for our community and so I decided to come to Nanua Picnic Race and Quarterhorse Club to offer my services as a person who has skills in many areas. As my late dad (Harry Blore) would say "jack of all trades"....I say..."skilled in none", though he would argue differently. :)

I am also part of the newly formed Nanua Equestrian Club which I helped form due to the growing of interest in our community for horse riding and socialising with people whom are like minded. I really would like to say a huge thankyou for the people in my life, without them, I would be...well...someone else!!
