Woo hoo...go you good thing! Our fabulous outgoing president Kristen and Eddie Perfect win the Jackpot level 3 at TTT Dressage held in Benalla during November. One test she was a whopping 7% above the second competitor. Welcome to Level 2 you champions! Our team finished a very credible 27th from 132 teams over the weekend.
We are lucky as a club to have HRCAV and EA dressage judge, Berni Saunders as a regular instructor. At our recent protocol day, not only did Berni judge 2 dressage tests for each rider but she also took photos of each rider before their first test to help them understand her feedback. She generously shared her knowledge, expertise, tips and photos. Ree set the pencilling bar very high by recording all feedback (official and unofficial) for riders to provide maximum value. A great day. Here are some of our members enjoying the special tuition.
Huge Congratulations to our very own Cathy Simmons and Ritzy on a massively successful day today at the the first HRCAV individual championships.
Cathy took out Reserve SOP, Champion MMS, Champion Ridden and Supreme Ridden. SUPERSTARS!!!❤❤❤
Huge congratulations to our member, Bianca (above left), who at the recent HRCAV AGM was recognised for being in the Top 10 Showing combinations over the year.
And a huge congratulations to our long standing member, Karen (above right), who was the recipient of the Meritorious Service Award for her services to our club and the HRCAV.
In July, some of our members enjoyed a fantastic weekend at the AEBC - the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre where they stayed over with their trusty mounts. A weekend of super lessons both flat and poles/jumps, good company and a few wines. This has become an annual event for the club and is an eagerly anticipated even on our club calendar.
