What a great afternoons’ show jumping we had at Starlight today….. the wind might have been blowing outside but inside some super jumping was had. Each class was preceeded by a clear round section and lots of baby horses and ponies were having their first outings over coloured poles and all loving the experience…..we also had a competition between two riders to see who could perform the best dismount….and we all agreed it was a draw…..we will spare your blushes…you know who you are...! Many thanks to Petra James for designing the courses, Chia James and Jenny Linfoot for scoring and Tracy Maczka and Judith Allen for secretary/refreshment and intermittent pole picking…..and a big thank you to everyone who helped put up the jumps and take them down.

*Christmas Party
I know it's very early to be thinking about it but this year's Christmas party is going to be held at the Cliff hotel on Saturday the 19th of December. The menu is below and will cost £21.95 a head. I need a deposit of £10 per person by October the 1st (cash, cheque or bank transfer) and I need the full amount by December the 1st including menu choices. Bring your other half and let's make it a fab night. Please get in touch via here, email: helen_147@hotmail.com or phone: 07966053414 thank you. Helen and Lucy

*We are looking into asking Centaur Biomechanics down to do a Rider Analysis clinic for the Riding Club. The provisional date would be Friday the 11th of March. It would cost around £65 depending on numbers and venue, so will confirm that once we have numbers there will only be 9/10 places so it will be on a first come first served basis. For more information please have a look on www.centaurbiomechanics.co.uk . Please let Helen Williams know if you'd be interested either via email on helen_147@hotmail.com, or 07966053414 or Facebook.
