Area 1 Newsletter – February 2019

Hi All,

I am sure you have all read and digested the information in the minutes of the AGM.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank those members retiring from the committee for their hard work and dedication over the years.  I know your expertise and knowledge will be missed.  I would also like to welcome the new members and look forward to meeting you in March.

Can all clubs please make sure the appropriate dues are paid to Area 1 with the beginning of the new season.

It was decided to join with Area 22 for the Horse Trials qualifier and this will run at Forgandenny on April 28th.  Please get your club’s entries in on time.  It was also decided not to include Intro tests in the dressage qualifiers.

Hat tags will be the same colours this year as for 2018.  It is now possible for each club to nominate an appropriate member to tag hats within their own club, so if your club was not present at the AGM to agree to do this and you would like to nominate a member, please contact Area 1 Rep, Maggie Bunnett.

Please note we have increased the training grant to £200 for 2019 only so clubs wishing to take advantage of this need to get their applications in.

Hoping you all have a successful season,

Ann Affleck
