26 May 2022Riding Club Show - Sunday 12th June
Our Open Summer Show will be held on Sunday 12th June in the Dounby Showpark, and we have the usual large range of Inhand and Ridden Classes, including NPS Blair qualifiers. If you want to qualify then please read and familiarise yourself with the rules, as we cannot be responsible for a wrong entry. The Schedule is on the link above.
You can enter as many classes as you are eligible for, and absolutely everyone is welcome to take part. It's a great show and a great venue, and it's great to be back since we've not had this show since 2019. We're also delighted that there's going to be a kitchen which is being run by, and in aid of, the Orkney Ladies Rugby.
Could all the 2019 trophy winners make sure they are engraved (2019) and returned asap. They can be left at the Riding Centre, with Helen at Radio Orkney, or with Sharon Nixon or Sharon Wylie.
"The Sharons" are also going to run a Raffle in aid of the Riding Centre and will make up Hampers as prizes. Donations would be most gratefully received and items can be left in the boxes on the table to left in the Riding Centre Canteen, or with Sharon Wylie or Sharon Nixon.
And as well as the Showing, we're going to have some Fun Jumping by offering a Joker Accumulator. This fun jumping will run along side the showing classes. You can enter only the jumping if you want, you don’t have to be entered in the show to take part. It’s planned to have each height class run for an hour so people can come and jump at any time within each slot when they're not showing. But please note that the showing classes cannot be held for people who are jumping. The SJ classes will be open for an hour so you should be able to do both if you time it right. Here's the Entry for the Accumulator SJ:
The Closing Date for both the Show and the Fun Jumping is MONDAY 6th JUNE.
Late Entries will be accepted up till WEDNESDAY 8th JUNE at DOUBLE FEE ONLY.
11 May 2022Show Jumping Competition - Sunday 29th May, Dounby
Our annual Show Jumping competition will be held in Dounby on Sunday 29th May. A schedule can be found on the link above. Advance entry closes on Wednesday 25th May, that way we can see if we have enough entries to go ahead, or if any classes need split.
Could last years winners please get the trophies engraved and returned asap - you should all have been tagged in a facebook post. Trophies can be left at the Riding Centre, or handed to a committee member.
We will be looking for some help to get the course set up on the Saturday, and at the event itself on the Sunday. Please let us know if you'd be available to do a job - Karen Greaves is the organiser of this event.
