What is happening this Winter?

Back in October we had a training session with Andrew Davies and Vicky Hesford. 35 members attended the training days in October and it was a great success.

News from our members:

Shortly after I sent off last monthís news I had a phone call from Mrs Curry. Huge congratulations are in order for Sophie Curry and Derwent Soldiers Tale who won the 13.2hh SP class at HOYS.

 

I am having a bit of fun on Pip (Langarth Trilogy) at the moment doing winter show jumping, dressage, going for rides down the beach and hunting and she seems to be loving life again!

I received an email from Danielle Gardham about her new ride for next season Climax Lampo (Rambo). Rambo is a Novice Intermediate and Dan recently took him to the BSPS course with Andrew Davies where he went really well. Danielleís sister Charlotte Gardham has taken over the ride of Bellevue Royal Prince and Iím sure she will get as much enjoyment out of him as Danielle did. So Iíd like to wish you both the best of luck for the 2009 season.

 

Sian Thomas also emailed me. Her 14hh WHP Tansy has been sold to a lovely family in Fife where she has been doing lots of pony club activities. With Tansy sold Sian is now looking for a bigger version of her!! Good luck with the horse hunting Iím sure you will find your dream horse soon.

 

I will just finish off by wishing you all a very happy Christmas and I will see you in the New Year. Donít forget to sent any news to kirsty_fudge@hotmail.com or phone me on 07929042859 before the 14th December.

 

Merry Christmas
