Members Newsletter – October 2015

Dear Member October 2015

Well we made it, a whole season without having to cancel, a bit cold sometimes and some rain in the last hour at the Trophy Show but we made it and there was even sun on some days.

We would like to thank all our sponsors who gave sponsorship & prizes at all the shows, without them we would not have had the ring Champions and the Supreme of the show Championship and the medals at two of the shows. If there is anyone who would like to sponsor a ring next year please get in touch.

The British Horse Society Merseyside Branch is holding a number of evening events, Thursday 15 October there is a Bitting Clinic which will follow the AGM. Thursday 19 November there is a talk on Horse Care in the Winter Months: both these events will be held at Rainford Ex – Club Bushey lane, Rainford Junction, WA11 7LN (same place as we hold the dance) They will begin at 7.30pm.
