To all competitors - especially winners and placegetters....Please take a few moments to send thankyou letters and/or emails to any sponsors who donated prizes that you received. The major sponsors would also welcome any thank you's..... Hopefully the club will be able to secure continued sponsorship from these generous businesses and individuals.
Many thanks to Maryann Schiller for all her organising with the months and months of preparation prior to the event. Megan Bryant did a huge task in organising the stables and yards, along with her family who supplied the machinery to build the stables and assisted all weekend.
There were many volunteers who all deserve praise, some were committee, but also thankyou to the riders, owners and helpers who assisted over the weekend.
The judges from WA, Tasmania and NZ have all expressed their appreciation at being asked to attend our event - it was great to have some fresh comments from these lovely and knowledgeable ladies. The writers for these judges were numerous and we thank them also.
Despite the less than ideal weather over the three days it appears we were very lucky not to get the cold windy conditions that have blown across since the weekend.
Well done to everyone who rode - we are very privileged to be able to ride such wonderful animals and we must always remember that.
