Read about Horsemens member Charlie Allen who rode in Botswana in 2012. What an adventure to be a part of & I'm sure life changing! Read the full story "Safari Around The Globe" in the October issue of Perth Rider.
Horsemens Adult Riding Club
November 2013 Newsletter
What a fantastic and successful first year I feel I have had as President at our new grounds. I have had the pleasure to meet most of you throughout the year and love what you and your horses bring to the club and remember it is you the members that make the club what it is - an exciting friendly supportive club along with a very hard working and dedicated committee working tirelessly in the background - Thank you.
The Interclub Challenge was a fantastic day with everyone putting in such a great effort whether it be in the dressage tests or in the freestyle tests to which some of our creative members put together some great costumes with music to match - a big thank you to everyone who came, rode and/or participated you did the club proud - well done... "Go Horsemens"
Our last rally is a Gymkhana - where the committee has put in a lot of time and effort to ensure you all have a fun filled day!!!! So please make the effort to come along whether you are riding or not!! Then I guess our four legged friends will get a much deserved break over the Christmas holidays and the riders of course.
I look forward to seeing you return next year - enrolment packs will be sent out in the not too distant future and riding members will get first preference than any vacancies will be taken up by our associate members...
Also look out for our END OF YEAR COCKTAIL PARTY - it promises to be a great evening - with trophies being awarded for each class!!!!
