MEMBERS’ SHOWJUMPING COMPETITION Sun 19th March
The first HVRC competition of the new season will be the members’ showjumping on the club arena on Sunday 19th March – don’t miss it! There will be classes to suit all abilities of horse and rider from 30cm to 100cm, including a Sweepstake and a Pairs. The schedule can be found here.

£1 CLINIC SURCHARGE
Those of you who attend clinics regularly will notice that the club toilets have been retained over the winter months. The committee made the decision to retain them primarily due to the fact that clinics remain popular and well-attended during the winter months and this facility is therefore needed. However, since the additional hire cost over the winter months has come to £600, the decision was made at the last committee meeting to fund this by asking each rider attending a clinic to pay a £1 surcharge, starting from 1st March. Clinics run on the club arena have up until now been run with no financial benefit to the club, with fees being paid directly to instructors. This nominal surcharge will help to offset the cost incurred by the club and may also help to contribute to the maintenance of the arena and showjumps etc. The cost of clinics at HVRC will still be extremely good value compared to the cost of clinics with the same instructors held at commercial centres.
