Three years ago Pony Rider kicked off our give back program 'The National Project' with the aim to raise funds for our National Parks via various initiatives. This particular event is one we hope y'all get on board to help raise as much money as we can to support a 'Land Buy Back' scheme. A scheme where areas of land are bought back to protect, grow and create new Aussie National Parks. 20% from tickets sales will be donated, along with any additional funds raised during the event
