         Easter Newsletter 2011
Dear Members
 I hope you are all enjoying this better Spring weather, what a cold winter we have had. I am pleased to report
that our membership is now up to 76 members, this is the same as last year which in the current economic
climate is very pleasing. Nationally many branches are reporting a fall in numbers. so a big welcome to those
new members.

The lead rein class is new this year and is going from strength to strength, a big thank you to Jenny Titterton
who is co-ordinating the sessions. The children appear to be having a great time and are making new friends.

 The Worcestershire Branch have got off to a flying start this year– we sent two teams to the Area Quiz, one of
our teams won for the second year in succession and the other team came a respectable 5th. Congratulations to
Jessamy and Georgina Reece and Lucinda and Maddie White who will be representing the area at the National
Final at Moreton Morrell on 17th April.

The Rallies and activities at half term went very well, Emma was delighted to see so many of you at either
Gracelands or the Lincomb Cross Country day and is looking forward to an eventful summer programme etc.
We had good feed back from many of you which is encouraging so please keep it coming – all feedback is very
welcome – good or bad!

We have had some pleasing success in the winter showjumping competitions, We have had winning teams at all
levels at the events at Kings Equestrian Centre hosted by the North Hereford and also at the Gracelands event
hosted by the Wyre Forest. The evening sessions run by Mandy Kent have really developed the skills of our
riders and I am confident that we will have more success at team and individual events through the year.

The Tetrathlon taster day went very well, with over 15 members who came along to Abberley to swim, shoot
and run. We are now running regular training at Abberley School on Thursday evenings – all members are
welcome, please phone Tina Stallard-Pearson for details. 12 members entered the Croome Tet on 19th March
and not only had great fun but success too, with team and individual placings.

Great news about the Website, Sharon Ling has kindly offered to take on the role of Web Master for us, so we
are looking forward to some exciting new changes.

I would like to thank all the Dads and lad (Jack) who came along to help at the branch field to maintain the
fences etc, your time and effort was much appreciated, we couldn’t do it without you.

Camp details are included in the newsletter, please send your deposit and form back to guarantee your place,
we have many exciting plans this year, all will be revealed soon!

We need your help and support at our Fund raising events this year. If you are unable to compete, please come
along and support us, and parents, your help is invaluable too, often just an hour or two makes a huge
difference.

I look forward to seeing you at the Fun Days, please spread the word, and bring your friends. Happy Easter to
you all!
Nigel White
