Message from Berry McCrea.. We have gone from a Feast to a Famine, only 14 competitors today, so with a start at 11.00am  we all finished by 3.00 pm!! Some difference from last week.  Hopefully we will be back to larger numbers on 12th April!  Happy Easter everyone Best Wishes Berry.

Ist Indoor Event 2015 Results:—

Results of “First Indoor” competition. Click this Link -Results of First Indoor 2015  This report by Berry McCrea “We are embarrassed by our success!”, with an incredible 23 competitors for our first indoor competition, it took longer than anticipated to accommodate this large number of entrants.  We apologise to those who had to wait to get into the arena for the combined cones/obstacles phase and we will look at getting things better organised for next Sunday, ie perhaps starting earlier and changing the running order.  Anyway fantastic to see so many new combinations out; especially Sean Mulholland driving his new horse as well as Frank Hurrell bringing Cheeky out of retirement as well as Sara and Dorothy with their new horses.  Lovely to also see two new juniors Denise and Georgina Morrison driving little Flicker. It bodes well for a great season ahead!!

Update on Christine’s “Car Boot Sale”

Car boot sale went really well even though it was a very cold, icy day. We had about 11 cars there selling and lots of buyers. Vicky from Horse World and Clare from Mill House Stables where there selling off stock. There was plenty for everyone.
The teas and coffees were selling out fast, it was a good day, so “Thanks” for the support  and  we made £170 for the NICDA Club. Christine Wright. (Club Treasurer)

John Goodwin (Club Chairman) would like to add:- “on behalf of the Committee, I would like to congratulate Christine Wright and her willing helpers, who despite the inclement weather conditions, carried on and made our first fund raising event of 2015 a success. With this level of enthusiasm and commitment our Club is in good hands”
