Dear RVRC Member
Ribble Valley Riding Club would like thank you for your support during 2017. The 2017 season was a huge success and a highly competitive season. Well done to all who won prizes in 2017.
In December we held our AGM. Peter Wilkinson stood down as president after a 5 year term. I would like to thank Peter for his service to RVRC and for all the time he has given freely. I am also pleased to welcome Karen Logan as the new president and look forward to working with Karen over the coming years. We also welcome the following people to our committee for 2018; Ellen Eatough, Alison Baxter and Andrew Robinson. The rest of last year’s committee are continuing in 2018. We are always looking for helpers, who are more than welcome to come and help set up and clear away the show. This is good insight to how the club is run for anyone considering joining us on the committee.
The March show has secured 2018 Royal International Horse Show Qualifiers for Coloured Horses and Ponies. This is a major coup for a riding club and show how highly thought of we are as a club.
The schedule has had a few tweaks as we are always looking to improve. The Working Hunter ring has a few changes including the introduction of a Style and Performance class with a ‘Joker’ fence.
The first show this year will be slightly earlier and will be a 2 day show held at Croft Top, at Accrington on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March. There will Coloured RI Qualifiers at the March Show. This is a major coup for a riding club and shows how highly thought of we are as a club.
The remainder of our shows will be held at our ‘home’ showground on Witton Park. See dates below.
There is still time to sponsor rings or advertise in the schedule, please contact any committee member or the club via our Facebook page.
2018 membership form is online now and the class schedule will follow shortly. You can also join online using PayPal at our website www.ribblevalleyridingclub.co.uk
Lastly the Committee look forward to seeing you next season and wish you all the very best of luck for the coming season..
(on behalf of the RVRC committee)
