Jan Wheelock and her team organised a fantastic Celebration Lunch on the 21st January, at the Rendezvous Hotel in Skipton. It was good to see riders, coaches, volunteers and trustees from many groups throughout the Region.
The lunch gave everyone the opportunity to share and celebrate their groups many achievements over the year.
Many long service awards to both people and horses were made.
The Maggie Tansley Award (in memory of our ex Regional Chair) was awarded for the first time. The recipient was Tommy Hill of the Snydale Group.
At the National AGM Yorkshire and Cleveland Region won the raffle for a new made to measure saddle for an RDA pony. This was then raffled at the lunch and the fortunate winners were the Riverside Group. Their pony Misty, who will be getting the new saddle, is very excited about this.
A celebration report from each of the groups attending will be published in the future.
We have had an article about the lunch in the local paper and it can be found below.
