Dear RVRC Member
Ribble Valley Riding Club would like thank you for your support during 2016. The 2016 season was a huge success and a highly competitive season. Well done to all who won prizes in 2016.
In December we held our AGM and I am pleased to say we have added the following people to our committee for 2017; Tracey Quinn, Pamela Griffiths, Gill Jackman, Howard Jackman, Kirsty Marrow, Nicola Sellers, Emma Leach, Marie Mills, Mick Sheldon and Tina Lewis. I would like to thank Anne Leaver for everything she has done for RVRC over many years, as she steps down from the committee. The rest of last year’s committee are continuing in 2017. We are always looking for helpers, who are more than welcome to come and help set up and clear away the show.
Now is the time that the committee are working hard preparing for next season. The full schedule will be available soon. We have removed the Foreign Breeds classes because of lack of entries. In their place we have added ‘Golden Oldies’ classes open to competitors over 45 years of age. In addition we have also added a Lead Rein Dressage Class as trial for April and May. We look forward to these classes being popular and well supported. All of our shows will be held at our ‘home’ showground on Witton Park. See dates below.
