Winning the saddle for the 2nd year running
Tuff Horse Rugs Dressage Day 30th April 2017
Simone Ousby and myself held this day and quite simply, Autumn blessed us with the most sensational day – perfect riding weather!
Our member’s classes were well supported however unfortunately Participant numbers were down due to many events being held on the same day.
Not to worry, a wonderful day was had by all. We have received a lot of positive feedback from competitors thanking us for holding such a friendly and well organized day. Our judges were also impressed and thankful for lovely conditions and lots of delicious food and for being well catered for.
I’d like to thank all the members who showed up for their allotted jobs and to those who stepped in when needed, it was very much appreciated and it help make the day run very smoothly and saw the day finish at a very respectful 1.30pm.
Big thanks must also go to our sponsors of the day, Tuff Horse Rugs which supplied all Members Winners with a $20 voucher and also to Mitavite who provided all Participant Winners with a feed scoop. Special mention must go to Bec Watson for organizing such amazing sponsors for all our days.
Another nice touch from Mitavite was a voucher for a free bag of feed to one lucky rider in each ring that the judges felt showed talent, horsemanship, and encouragement. These riders were Jan Sturgess and Leanda Edwards. Well done ladies!
Our next day is the Super Hero’s charity day on the 21st of May. Make sure you have your costume ready, sounds like a fun day.

Event Report – 30 July
A great day of dressage for our Participant/Members competition. The weather was perfect and we had a lot of entries. I was on gear check all day, it’s a job that I enjoy volunteering for and I was able to meet a lot of new members to the club and their beautiful horses.
A big thanks to our hard working committee, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to organise these events for the riders and make sure the day runs smoothly.
Also a huge thank you to our generous major sponsor for the day, Elmdon Hay – our winners went away with fantastic prizes, and the rug was very popular for our raffle!! Please support the businesses that support us, check out Elmdon Equine Supplies on Facebook and their website https://elmdonequinesupplies.com.au/en/ – they regularly deliver good quality hay and feed to the Redlands and throughout South East Qld, right to your doorstep.
