September Newsletter

 

Dear Member,      

It’s hard to believe that the 2013 season is almost at an end! We sincerely hope that you all had a great time. It was lovely to welcome back old friends and lots of new ones too!

We are proud to announce that our team battled to 2nd place in the recent Osbaldeston Club Classics. Our show jumpers really did us proud winning their section. Our in-handers and ridden show people managed a very creditable 2nd place, pipped at the post by Leigh and District. Everyone was delighted and agreed that it was a wonderful experience. The sense of sportsmanship and camaraderie among our team and others was amazing. Many people made new friends and everyone supported each other, roll on next year!

Don’t forget our Christmas show on the 1st December at Croft top, the schedule will be out soon so watch our face book page and the Cliviger website. It should be a lovely show so be sure to finish the year on a high! Rumour has it that Father Christmas may be attending too!

Another date for your diary is the 2nd November. An Elite Riders’ day is to be held at Crow Wood, with John Conifry doing a flat clinic and Tracy Brooks running the working hunter.  Cliviger members will get a £2 concession. For more information consult the Ponies UK website or contact Norah.

Our presentation evening is to be held on the 14th December at the Van Guard Centre Burnley, with tickets going on sale very soon. Prices are adults £6 and juniors £5, under 5’s free. Contact Ann, Elaine, Cath or Zoe to pick yours up. We are looking forward to a wonderful night of dancing and fun!

If you have a perpetual trophy please could you arrange to return it to us, if you have not already done so.

And finally…donations for raffle prizes will be gratefully received! Contact a committee member if you can help us out.
