I would like to thank all the clubs who supported our Area Horse Trials on Sunday either by competing or by helping.

We need over 100 people to run the event on the day, so thank you to all of you who turned out to provide that help.  Without that, the event simply wouldn’t happen.  I would particularly  like to thank the clubs who took on the job of organising phases of the event – Golden Valley for the catering, Vale of Arrow ran the dressage, Torfaen the show jumping, Riders 2000 the scoring, and Southerndown took on all the administrative roles including taking the entries – congratulations to Mair.

The day was a great success and ran on time, and we had many thanks from competitors for a good day.

Thank you to you all.
