Welcome to our mid season update. We certainly have had some wonderful weather and we hope that you have all managed to take advantage of the sunny days and lighter evenings to get out and about on your four legged friends. However, we are all now praying for some rain!!!! We are never satisfied! 😊.
Although we have run several very successful events so far, we still have many more to come, so please read through this newsletter and come and join us. We have had lots of wonderful and positive comments on our Facebook page which is always much appreciated by our Committee Members, so please keep them coming as it's great for our morale 😁. As always, we need helpers for every event, so if you can spare a few hours, please contact the event organiser. Any extra pair of hands will be much appreciated.
Sadly the firm ground has put paid to our Working Hunter Clinic and clear round sessions during August – you and your horses’ safety are our first priority. We did try to rearrange the clinic to be held in the arena but sadly did not have enough response to justify running this. Hopefully our clinics that we will again be running through the winter will have more support. Any ideas for themes/instructors, please contact Tracey Tucker .
Our Open In-Hand Show will take place on Sunday 19th August. It was well attended last year, so we hope that it will follow suit this year. Schedules have gone out to tack shops around the area, or you can download a copy from our website. Entries can be made through Equo Events as well this year. Lots of lovely rosettes, sashes, cups and ££££££ to be won!!
Once again we are running our Open Show Jumping event including a Team Event (kindly sponsored by Fine Equine) on Sunday 23rd September. If anyone wants to represent the WDRC in a team, please contact Tracey Tucker and she will put interested parties in touch with each other.
Once again this year, Mr and Mrs Rowe have kindly agreed to allow us access to their land to enable us to run the increasingly popular Sponsored Ride on 7th October in aid of Macmillan Cancer and MDS UK Patient Support Group. This is an Open Event, so everyone is welcome and you can enter beforehand or turn up on the day. However, please remember that with all of our charity based events, we will not be able to accept Helpers Vouchers as part payment. We still require helpers, so contact Linda Skakich or Vanessa Twinn if you can spare a few hours. It is after all for a very worthwhile cause.
Hope to see you all soon
