Jan – May

Show season is off to a roaring start, the first show was a success seeing in new members and familiar faces from previous years. Welcome back to another year at Leyland and District Riding club! We’ve added a few new classes for our members this year, after we had a terrific turn out at our annual AGM meeting in November. This is including a new Dun, Palomino and Cremello class and a few novelty classes for our wonderful kiddies.

Our first show went ahead on the 27/04/2014 with lovely weather. I had the pleasure of taking some pictures of our children’s novelty classes however we had two photographers on the showground; Unique Photography ( www.uniquephotographyuk.com ) and PerfectPics Photo’s (https://www.facebook.com/perfectpics.photos?fref=ts) please take a look and feel free to order any pictures from them that you would like.

Sadly, we had to cancel our show on the 11th May however the new show date will be on the 20th July 2014.

In hand show schedule is well on it’s way and will be available very soon! We’re also planing a special fun day for everyone, including fun novelty classes, dog classes and Gymkhana/Handy Pony: something for everyone! More news on the In hand show and our fun day in the coming weeks.

Our next show date is on the 1st June, so hope to see everyone there!!
