Club show Jumping Competition 2010
CLUB SHOW JUMPING COMPETITION 2010
Well, another season has run its course, (pardon the pun)!! We have been pleased to see a number of new faces this year, as well as some well known ones. Many of the new faces have come by being recommended by James Dawson; so, many thanks James. I hope that coming to the showjumping competitions has helped those who have come at James’ suggestion gain extra confidence and satisfaction.
Mostly, we have been blessed by reasonable weather. This has helped the attendance in general. However, we still started off with a large attendance in April and got gradually poorer in numbers as the season progressed. Indeed, the final event failed to make any money for the club’s funds, because of the poor attendance.
Through the season, 23 members managed to score points to be considered for the championship. Louise Harrison managed the largest number of points for the seventh year in a row and so is our club competition champion yet again. In second and third places, we are pleased to have two new names – Amy Gregory and Karen Morley. Congratulations to them all.
We take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended our events for supporting us; this includes many children and adult non-members, who have helped to raise money for the club. Our thanks, too, to Hazel and Jonathan Radford for providing such a splendid arena and showjumps upgraded this year.
If you haven’t joined us for any of the events so far, please give it a try next year – we always aim to make it fun. We’ll be starting again in April, 2011.
