lmrc 6x4 1

Hi Everyone

You’ll be delighted to hear on Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd of May we’re organising our first Club show for over 12 months!
Because we still have to comply with Covid regulations, we’re having to organise things a little differently at the moment. So this show will have pre-entry, and to keep numbers on the field at a sensible level we have decided to have it over two days, with Showing and Novelty classes on the Saturday and Jumping on the Sunday.

Please click on the first link below to view the schedule

Late Winter Update

Hi Everyone

Just a quick update to let you all know what’s happening. Regrettably, Covid is  still affecting all riding activities, though with the vaccine rollout well underway, there are signs things may improve after Easter this year.

Virtual AGM
All motions were carried (15 respondents). An updated membership form has been added to the website for all who would like to re-join.

Manege
The manege fibre topping is due for delivery next week. Because of the problems getting an articulated lorry down the farm lane this will cause us some logistical problems we had not anticipated, but hopefully the solution Ann’s come up with will solve those. Then we just have to mix it in with the sand!

Hope you all are keeping well in this foul weather.

Annual General Meeting – Online

Even in these very strange times we are required by law to have an Annual General Meeting, to report to all Members the condition of the Riding Club, and to suggest how the Committee propose to take things forward in the coming year.

The only practical way hold a meeting in the current Government Lockdown is online. Because of this we’ve uploaded the relevant reports below. It would be helpful if all members or parents/guardians could read through these before filling in the last item, an online voting form which replaces the usual show of hands at a standard AGM. THIS NEEDS TO BE RETURNED BY 25th JANUARY, so if you only do one thing when reading through this post, ticking the boxes on this form is the most important.

If you prefer you can download and print the Proxy AGM 2020 form (it’s the same) and post to Llantwit Major & District Riding Club, The Barn, Tremains Farm, Llanmaes Road, Llantwit Major CF61 2XF.

 

Online Voting Form

Despite all the difficulties and disappointments of 2020, with the new all-weather manege only waiting for its fibre topping, supply of which has also be delayed by the lockdowns,

Manege January 2021 – Sand Laid

the Club remains in a strong position to re-start activities once the Government and British Riding Clubs tell us it is safe to do so. We hope to see you all very soon, and until then please stay safe.
