A huge thank you to everyone who’s ridden in teams over the last riding club year. Without you, we wouldn't be take part in area events and raise the profile of the club. Year-on-year, we continue to see improved results, so well done all involved. We would love to see both familiar and new faces next year!
Unfortunately however, and on a number of occasions, we had riders (who had not paid their entry fee) drop out of competitions after the preliminary entry had been made. This means if we cannot find a replacement, the club ends up out of profit.
Because of this, the committee have agreed to take a tougher stance on entries next year. It has agreed that unless riders pay before the prelim entry deadline, they won’t be entered for the competition. Thank you for your cooperation.
This year day camp will be held at Sunday 25 September at Hollisters in Chipping Sodbury. Riders will have lessons in flat, show jumping and cross-country (all optional). The total cost will be around £55 for the day and there are 20 spaces available.
To secure your space, send a £20 deposit to Nicci Cunningham at 13 Kingfisher Close, Bradley Stoke, BS32 0AN. Make your cheque payable to Ssevern Vale Riding Club.
