NORTH DEVON RIDING CLUB
OCTOBER 2016
NEWSLETTER
If you are unable to attend for any reason tell the organiser as soon as
possible and we will try and re-sell your space. If we re-sell your space
your money will be refunded. Unfortunately sometimes we are unable
to re-sell spaces but the club still has to pay for the venue and for the
instructor. For this reason too, we can no longer accept payment ‘on
the day’. The easiest way to pay is through bank transfer:
Sort code: 30-90-49
Account number: 00385651
plus the clinic/event reference
or you can ask the organiser for an address to send a cheque.

Treasure Hunt / Fun Ride from Wheddon Cross in association
with West Somerset and Exmoor Bridleways Association Sunday
11th September 2016
This was a great ride through some challenging terrain. With just two
short sections of road, which were really well stewarded, the ride was
super safe. Many thanks to the organisers Julia Holtom and Jaye Jones
and all their volunteer helpers.

X Country Schooling with Tim Cheffings on Wednesday 14th
September 2016
Two groups took part in this clinic and had a great time. Tim has so
many jumps from logs on the ground to huge scary things! There really
is something for everyone.

Discounted Membership Renewal
We will also be seeking to amend the membership year to fall in
line with the calendar year. This will make our administration
with British Riding Clubs much simpler. Renewal is due this year
on 1st November. The proposed change is:
‘the annual subscription shall be payable by the 1st January each
year’
We will manage this by extending the coming year from renewal
on 1st November 2016 until 31st December 2017.
Area 12 Novice Winter Dressage Qualifiers
Sunday 6th November 2016
