Rosettes and trophies for members who did well in 2015
The evening started with members raising their glasses to the committee and official helpers who have done a huge amount of work with organising clinics and competitions and training for our members.
The first rosettes went to two special young ladies who are not members of Riding Club, but their mothers are: Jessica Jones and Sophie Williams, who always help at Cassie’s show jumping competitions and we really appreciate their help.
The most helpful member award this year went to Heather Jones who not only does her own job of treasurer but helped Justine run camp, has been the chef d’equipe for the show jumping teams and helped at our dressage competitions.
Special rosettes were awarded to three ‘special members’ who have been extremely helpful during the year.
They all have given up so much of their time to run activities for others to enjoy.
• Justine Roberts who with the help of Heather and Meg ran a superb camp at Berriewood which everyone enjoyed.
• Cassie Woods who organised very successful show jumping competitions at Radford’s and ended the season with a hugely popular open team show jumping competition.
• Elspeth Carr who has most successfully organised dressage competitions at Brithdir Equestrian Centre where we all had most enjoyable evenings and drank lots of Pimms.
