Congratulations to all the above.  Awards, and rosettes from the two virtual dressage competitions, can be collected if you are attending the Christmas show jumping on 20th December or after from Hacks,  Saltash.  Please return any cups you are holding (nicely shined up!)  to Hacks in Saltash before the 20th December.

A tricky year but we have achieved a lot together, thank you so much for taking part . Don’t forget the Christmas Show jumping on Sunday 20th December (advanced entries only).

On a more personal note,  I am saying farewell now to  both club and committee members as I step down both from the secretary role and from the committee.  Our three horses are now largely retired but we have all had such fun together through the riding club.  I miss competing them more than I can say and find it hard to watch you all having so much fun out there.  However you have been a fantastic group to work with so I shall cherish the memories.

Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and a much more positive 2021.
