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.
