This will be the last newsletter from Me as I will be handing over to Sam Townsend (Wellings) for next year. I am sure that a change of editor will freshen up the newsletter. You will still be able to contact her through the email address. So if you have anything to advertise or have any ideas for the newsletter then please let her know. I will still be acting as Events officer so if you have any ideas or wish to see any changes to events for next year you can also contact me through the saddle club email above.

HORSE WATCH NEWS
We all know how Insurance companies try to get out of settling claims but this is slightly worrying and something that you need to be aware of so pass this on to all people that you know.
During the snow and ice period a horsebox was being driven on what was described as a non-essential journey and was involved in a non injury accident. When it came to the insurance company paying for repairs etc they informed the other party that as the Police had been advising on TV and radio stations not to travel unless it was essential then the horse box should not have left the yard so in their opinion they would not pay for the repairs and the insurance was policy was not valid.........
Obviously the Ins co will have a different take on what was essential etc (although I think I would agree with them if the journey was not essential). The company begins with S and I believe have an orange logo....but I would suggest that all the Ins Co's will eventually go down this route so either read the small print or check with your Ins. co......... but do not go out if not required to.
The arab horse - AYESHA - reported missing whilst on loan in October has
been recovered. The owner wishes to pass on her thanks to everyone that
helped. The horse was recovered as the new owners applied for a passport
and the horse was identified as missing.
