CVRC DRESSAGE 2020 - 2021 POINTS SERIES WINNERS ANNOUNCED
Due to Covid-19 we have had a curtailed winter dressage series in 2019 - 2020 but have been able to hold a full summer series at Boughton Mill. The Committee therefore decided that the fairest way to calculate the winners of our points shields and the dressage to music trophy was to award points for all the results across these two series.
Please congratulate our winners, who are:
Intro - Laura Hawkins on Farmhill Diamond, runner up Kay Willoughby on Jessie's Choice
Prelim - Annette Southgate on Ashurst Ben, runner up Tracie Lavelle on Sarco Sovereign
Novice and above - Gillian Duckworth on Red Bog Lady, runner up Tracie Lavelle on Sarco Sovereign
Dressage to Music - Gillian Duckworth on Red Bog Lady, runner up Tracie Lavelle on Sarco Sovereign
This years winter points series is already underway, with the shields and the dressage to music trophy to be awarded at the end of the series in 2022.
FLU VACCINATIONS - from 10 September 2021 all horses and ponies that compete at BRC qualifying competitions and championships must have had a valid flu vaccination within the last 12 months and not in the 7 days preceding that competition. The primary course of vaccinations must also be correct. This is a change from the previous 6 month rule, though the BRC has stated that it "strongly recommends" that the 6 month rule is followed.
For all CVRC training and shows we require that all horses and ponies that attend CVRC training at our various venues or any CVRC competitions also follow this rule and have had a flu vaccination within the last 12 months and not the preceding 7 days.
We will be keeping a record of all vaccinations of active members' horses and ponies to ensure that our venues do not take on any risk from non-vaccinated horses and ponies attending training or shows. Please ensure that you remember to send an up to date copy of the first page of your horse's passport showing its name and UELN and all vaccination pages to firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of Emma. Whenever your horse has a booster, please send the updated vaccinations page to email@example.com for the attention of Emma.
Attention new members!
It’s lovely to see so many new members joining the Cherwell Valley fold. In order for us to put everyone in the correct groups for training please would any new members send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org, telling us a little bit about you and your horse/pony. Please tell us whether you would like to represent the club, what level you are currently working at - flat and jump, any problems you have and what you would like to get from the club. Thank you.
