Spring Newsletter 2021
I am sure you are all wondering when we will ever get the club going again – it certainly has been frustrating with mixed messages regarding the status of indoor schools differing from one lockdown easing to another.
We were back briefly at World Horse Welfare and will hopefully be back there again soon – so for Gill Longhurst clinics at the moment the best option is to contact Jaki Dyer directly (07929 716 070).
For the Amanda Edmonds clinics at Kingfisher speak to Sara Bartlett (07967 208 778).
New booking forms for these clinics will be available when we are more certain of the way ahead – so Jaki and Sara are the best contacts at present.
It is no longer going to be possible to run Dressage competitions at Kingfisher as we cannot use the outdoor school for the warm up – so we are trying a competition day at Half Moon Stud at Motcombe. Many of you will remember when this was a regular venue for us. For those of you who are not familiar with this venue – it offers a nice Polytrack warm up arena and an indoor school which can accommodate a 20 x 60 arena, Please support this venture.
Do contact Martin Boreham if you are interested in a weekend camp at Stockland Lovell in September – this will include flatwork and jumping (SJ and XC) and I understand some good food and fun evenings.
We will run the Quiz night later in the year when Village Halls are declared safe – strange that you can have a tattoo but not sit near anyone to do a quiz!!!
The Sue Petty clinics will return as soon as possible.
If there are other clinics that you would like us to offer or maybe some test riding – do let us know.
Sadie Berners has left the committee due to work commitments and we thank her for her work over the past years.
Jaki Dyer has been co – opted in her place and we welcome her to the committee.
Thank you for your support during these strange times
