The committee will consider the cancellation of some shows this autumn and projected cancellation of spring shows before finalising that decision.
Members will be advised as soon as practical.

The final clinic is scheduled for August 22nd.


We are delighted with the interest in this seminar with many potential new judges registered to attend.

No doubt known to many of you, Annie has an extensive background in breeding and showing horses and also brings her considerable business knowledge to the committee.
Welcome Annie, and we look forward to your input for the betterment of our sport.

Members are reminded that memberships are due on 30 June.
