2017 Important Notice
Dear NWBARC member,
We are writing to let you know that the North Weald Bridleways and Riding Club committee has reluctantly decided not to hold the club’s traditional summer shows, this year or for the foreseeable future.
Attendance numbers have been declining for some years, yet the shows are increasingly expensive to hold, especially with the rising costs of emergency first aid cover. We have reached the point where one year with poor weather could financially ruin the club. Furthermore your committee, of decreasing numbers and increasing age, feels that it is no longer feasible to put in so many hours of effort before, during and after the show for such a small number of competitors, and even fewer members.
Your club committee has therefore decided to refocus on a range of other riding and bridleways club activities. Our next, the TREC day, will go ahead as planned on 24th June – entries please to Sue Saunders as per the information on our web site at http://nwbarc.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/NWBARC-Trec-2017.pdf . We are planning other activities throughout the year, some just for you, some for you and your horse. Please keep an eye on our web site www.nwbarc.co.uk or on Facebook.
We fully understand that you may have joined largely for the shows, and are sorry to disappoint you. We will fully refund your membership fees on request (please contact the Membership Secretary, Alex Tait). On the other hand, if you would like to continue as a member, the club will be starting a new membership year from 1st June, and your existing membership will be carried over to a full year, not expiring until 31st May 2018.
We hope you will join us in our new venture, and look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon.
The NWBARC committee
