Dear Member

As the Winter Programme will not be available until early October – this is just an interim update with some key dates for your diary.

SEPTEMBER 22ND      OPEN DRESSAGE AT SOUTH BARROW. The schedule for this was in your Summer Programme and is on the website:  The tests are Pr 12, Pr 14 and N24 and E42.  Andrea Jones is secretary for this event and will be waiting for your entries!!

SEPTEMBER  27TH  JANE HOLDERNESS – RODDAM EVENING  AT LONG  SUTTON  VILLAGE HALL  TA 10 9NT. This is not strictly a RC event but Jane kindly offered to come and do an evening talk about her life with horses in aid of World Horse Welfare’ Glenda Spooner Farm at Somerton of which she is a Trustee.  She will also host a Q & A session. It promises to be a very interesting evening. WHW will have gifts and Christmas cards on sale and there will be a raffle.  Light refreshments will be served. Tickets in advance are £6 and £7.50 on the night if available.  Tickets from Marian Draper, Crane Hill House, Catsgore, Somerton TA11 7HY (SAE please) and cheques made payable to World Horse Welfare. Please bring your friends!!!

OCTOBER 26TH  – SUE PETTY CLINIC AT KINGFISHER.  Sue will teach matched pairs –  £27 members and £33 non members. The booking from for this will be available with the Winter programme but this is advance warning as these are very popular!  Ring Marian to book a place!


With the help of inside information – we have managed to secure Jonathon  ‘ Jock’ Paget as the guest speaker for our Supper Night which will be held at the Northover Manor, Ilchester.

Jock not only won Badminton but has added Gatcombe to his winning and who knows maybe he will manage Burghley too!  He should be a very different speaker as his path to success has not been typical.  More details for this evening will come out with the Winter Programme – but reserve the date in your diaries.

The Nikki Stephens  clinics will begin on Monday November 4th at Kingfisher  and we have three dates fixed with Gaye Farquharson on Saturdays at Kingfisher -2 – 4 pm. These dates are Nov 2nd, Dec 7th and Feb 1st.  There will be other training clinics with Sue Petty, Steve Hague and Jane Holderness- Roddam.

Winter Programme soon!!!   AGM in November!
