Can all new and existing members please fill in a 2014 form so we can keep up to date information on all our members.
You will notice a small increase in the price for 2014.  The prices for Club Show classes will however stay the same £3 a class or 4 classes for £10 – which is fantastic value!
We’re not sure all members are aware but the Club has to pay £10.50 per member to British Riding Clubs which is why our Subscriptions may appear higher than other Clubs. We still feel though that we offer amazing value for money with the prices we charge at Club Shows and the reduced entries that members benefit from at our Open Shows/Events.
The committee is also using Club funds this year to purchase a portacabin to replace the old caravans which will be used jointly for entries and show jumping judging. We are also buying more new show jumping wings and working hunter wings all which cost money but will benefit our members in 2014.
