    Bushfire support for the horses

 

There are some stories that are cute, heartwarming and well worth sharing.

Last week the following article appeared in the Wentworth Courier – a little insight into the role the Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre recently played in supporting some horses that were affected by the bushfires.

We thought we’d share a few photos from behind-the-scenes which were just priceless!

But the cutest photo?

Two beautiful miniature ponies, who go by Ella and Pixie, were also brought in…

Ella and Pixie have subsequently gone home again after the bushfire threat to their home out west has subsided, but were just adorable!

Just another side of what Centennial Parklands provides the community.
