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 this new COVID virus variant has had other ideas, and with the imposition of Tier 4 on the whole of Suffolk and Norfolk from just after midnight on December 26th, and Full lockdown from January 4th it means that we are once again cast into uncertainty. Under Government rules and BRC guidance we have to cease all training events, and of course any competitions – although I am really hopeful that by the time we plan to resume dressage competitions at the end of March or beginning of April, everything will be looking much more positive and we can really start to get going again.

In addition, at this time of year we are usually busily planning our AGM and Awards evening, but as sadly we will not be able to get together in person, we will be trying to host a virtual event via Zoom – technology permitting. So please look out for an email, or an announcement on our Facebook page with more information.

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
