Championship Show – August 23rd

Our next show is our final club show of the season and we will be holding championships in each ring, awarding Champion & Reserve Champion rosettes and sashes in 13 different championships across the whole of the classes. We will also be awarding the highest placed member in every class with a special rosette, but you must have your membership card with you, if you haven’t yet picked up your membership pack from the caravan, remember to do so on the morning of the show.

As it is our final show, this will be the last time to earn points in your classes and the points book will again be available to view outside the caravan.

For those of you that have qualified for our North West Blue Chip Showing Championships in September, remember to get your entries in, your qualifier is your entry form and the full schedule is under the Blue Chip tab at the top of this page.

Let’s hope for some sun after our very wet July Show.

JUNE SHOW CANCELLED

Dear All,

We have had to make the really hard decision to cancel this Sunday’s show.

It was not an easy decision to make – please believe us!

However, the ground is so hard, the grass has only just been cut and there is a major band of rain coming over on Saturday night/Sunday morning which we believe would make the ground extremely slippery and dangerous to ride on.

We know you will be disappointed, so are we(!) but your safety is paramount and we have had these experiences before.

WE ARE NOT FOLDING!! We don’t know where these rumours are coming from but they are totally untrue!!

We ran the same amount of shows last year and had a really successful season!!  Members, you now only have to enter 2 shows to qualify for year end trophies.

We have a show in July and a Championship Show in August with major rosettes and sashes galore – we have ordered these and we want you to have them!!

Also, we are going to run a fun day on Sunday 19th July – details to follow.  Working Hunter and SJ clinics, bring your BBQ, fun classes and clear rounds are all planned.  Come and have a fun relaxing day out!!  CRS have an amazing XC field of new jumps which they are offering to us to use, so come and join in!!

We are one of the most successful clubs in the NW and we are NOT going to LET YOU DOWN!!

If we don’t see you at the Fun Day in July, we’ll see you at the July show!!  Come rain or shine.

The 2014 Class Winners list

Hey everyone, it’s finally here, that time where you get to see how your hard work paid off and what silverware you got (for legal purposes, trophies are not actually silver).

Download the class winners list by clicking the below link:

Points 2014 Overall Class Winners List

So let me explain for those of you who don’t know… We give out trophies 1st – 4th place overall in EVERY class. Class winners will receive a perpetual trophy (you need to bring it back next year), a championship rosette with ‘Champion’ printed down the tails, and a trophy to keep. 2nd – 4th place gets a trophy to keep.

Champions – If you want to personalise your rosette, you can have anything you like printed down the tail, provided it fits and remember to keep it clean, we are a family club… This will cost you a £5 note.

Other places – You too can have a rosette, personalised to your desires… It will be a different colour to the Champion rosette. Or maybe you want a brother or sister, favourite groom or friend to have a rosette? Same goes. Price for this is £10, and did I mention how big and fabulous these rosettes are? You will love them.

Anyone can order a sash to go with their placing too… £12 is the price, they are gorgeous quality and you get 3 lines of printing on them. Keep it clean, remember!

Link to the order form below, simply print, fill in and send with your payment to the address on the form:

Rosette Sash Order Form 2014 (1)

There are also special trophies on the night for overall winners of rings, combination points, junior, senior and all sorts, but these are secret until the night. You’ll just have to wait…

So now you need somewhere to pick these prizes up… Well, it’s Saturday 22nd November at Runcorn Holiday Inn and the theme is ‘A Night at the Movies’, so yes, it’s fancy dress! There will be a buffet, disco, and a chance to catch up with friends and maybe get a photo with some familiar faces…

So the ticket order form is below, please note all tickets must be pre-booked.

Right, get those costumes sorted and we will see you there!
