Happy New Year Everyone!
Thanks to those who have already re-joined Severn Vale. The 2016/17 promises to be a fun-filled one.
We are hoping this year will be an exciting one with something for everyone!
Don't forget, as a member you must complete at least four hours volunteer hours for the club over the membership year! You can do this at rallies and shows. Contact Katherine Hills to arrange rallies that need helpers.
Changes to rally bookings and payments
So we have kick started our rally bookings online via Equo. Register FREE at www.equoevents.com to enter rallies quickly and securely. Once registered, you can book rallies from our Equo booking page >>
You can continue to pay for rallies by Paypal, but you must follow the usual booking process and wait until your space is confirmed before you make payment.
If you have any concerns, or are unable to use the system for any reason, please contact us.
Rallies for January, February and March. All rallies can can be booked using our new rally-booking system Equo.
Don't forget, you must re-join the club before you can take part in any rallies. Please clear up after yourself and your horse and make sure you park respectfully.
Well Done Everyone!!
The total of the dressage championships and charity money has been totted up, with a whopping £2000 currently winging it's way to Sallyanne Haigh to help towards her training and rehab for her goal to get back riding and hopefully onto the para dressage scene.
If you would like to follow Sallyanne's blog click here. She has just had some amazing news from a local sponsor that are helping towards the cost of the hoist, which will be fitted to Beth Hobbs' (Nee Miller) lorry.
Dressage Teams and Training
The date for the intermediate area dressage has been confirmed as the 19th February. This will be held at Leyland Court with classes from Prelim to Elementary and individual Medium. If you are interested in joining the dressage team please contact Alexandra Richards or Vikki Swindell for more information.
There will be team training with Carolyn Taylor to be held at Northwood Farm, Swan Land, Winterbourne, Bristol, BS36 1RW. Please book this via Equo Events.
We have set up a direct link with Sew Equestrian for our new range of club merchandise, to be taken straight to our area of the website click here. We have started with a small selection of items, but if these take off, we will be looking to add more items to our range.
We look forward to seeing our members in our new club clothing!
