The fun show on 29th August was again a great success and we managed to miss the rain that arrived at the end of the day. A fun day was had by all and the flapjack went down well! We hope Gypsy the dog (who had many entries in the Horse & Hound class) has recovered now from running and jumping around the course so many times!!

The intention of the AGM is to reflect over the past year and to go through the finances of the club. It is also the chance to elect new people to the committee (no pressure applied!). All members are eligible to attend, make comments or recommendations to the club officials and amend the rules by which the club operates.
So why not come along, and see what it is all about? There are vacant posts on the committee but no one is press ganged on to it – so you can safely come along! Be there or don’t complain you are not getting what you want from your club!!
We will also be giving out the trophies and rosettes for the points shows this year. If you had a trophy last year please ensure that it is returned engraved and cleaned. You can drop them off at Tack and Turnout or bring them with you to the meeting.
The buffet curry will follow after the meeting so if not having the food then please do come along to the meeting and presentations.
