All the committee and members of the Vale of Arrow Riding Club would like to wish Jo Foster a very speedy recovery after taking a fall from Jar last Thursday.
Jo is currently in Hospital in Hereford, she has broken her pelvis, which could not be pinned, so she has had a hip replacement.
A great start to the VOARC’s dressage series 2014. We had wonderful weather and everyone seemed to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. The arena now has the addition of some very smart mirrors!
