Halesworth and District Riding Club

Hello everyone,

Well, what a year it’s turned out to be – I suspect all of us were never expecting one quite like it!

As we have struggled through various forms of lockdown, we’ve all tried desperately to keep our horses and ponies ticking over, in the hope that soon we would be able to get back to clinics, competitions or other outings – it’s certainly been a challenge.

Having said all of this, I think, thanks to the amazing people we have as a committee and all of you as our members, been able to run more dressage competitions, training sessions and other activities than perhaps we thought would be possible, and I’d like to take this opportunity to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone whether they be a competitor, an organiser, a volunteer or a venue owner for all their unwavering support during these challenging times.

I was hopeful, that with the advent of a vaccine I would be able to write an optimistic and hopeful message for 2021, but sadly new COVID virus variants have had other ideas!

I am really hopeful that with the resumption of indoor training and slightly larger events, everything is looking much more positive and we can really start to get going again.

Halesworth & District Riding Club are always pleased to support the Bergh Apton Horse Show & Fun Dog Show which takes place this year on Sunday July 18 at Bergh Apton Manor near Norwich.
The Show schedule is listed below and online entries can be made via myridinglife.com or by selecting Calendar & Online Events drop down menu from the green line at the top of this page.

The Summer Dressage Qualifiers are scheduled for July 11 at Blackwater Farm, Great Witchingham. If any members would like to compete for the club at this event please contact Michele Hurst (Juniors) or Julie Long & Katie Waterfield for the Seniors.

In the meantime, it just remains for me to wish all of you the best for 2021, and let’s hope we can all get together in person before too long has passed.

Take care of yourselves and your families.

Kind regards

Nicky Virgo
Chairman
