Well here we are already almost half way through the year and it seems to have flown by! Such a shame that we have had another soggy Spring, which caused us to cancel some of the events in April, but hopefully we can now put all that mud and rain behind us!
The Committee are getting ready for our busiest time of the year and we very much hope that you will note down all of our upcoming shows and other events. With so much to organise and run, we are DESPERATE for help from you. Sadly, despite our plea for extra hands in our last newsletter, not one person came forward to offer help, leaving the Committee in the usual situation where we need to organise future events, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to run any of them without more people coming forward to help set up and run the events alongside us.
PLEASE, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT especially for the Open In-Hand Show on Sunday 19th August. However if you can help at any of our events, please contact Vanessa (07805 665909) or the event organiser.
As many of you will read in this edition, the Committee have had to make the difficult decision not to run the Open Ridden & In-Hand Show (originally planned for Sunday 29th July) this year due to the issues mentioned above. We apologise to all those who were looking forward to taking part at this event, but we would prefer to run the show properly rather than struggle.
However, instead, we will be running two Show Jumping events using the rustic jumps over that same weekend, so please check this newsletter for details
As many of you may know by now, Lyn Baldwin who used to instruct at many of our clinics sadly passed away recently. Our thoughts are with her partner, Brona and her family at this time.
Another of our popular instructors and show judge, Elaine Macduff has also been unwell, and we are sure that many of our member's would like to join the Committee in sending Elaine our best wishes.
Finally, this leaves us to wish you all a warm and fun filled summer and we look forward to bringing you more news and events in our next newsletter in July.
