Congratulations to our long standing member Emmie Collier who has a new role within
the BSPS. Emmie is now one of the England Team Selectors. So well deserved!
Our recent Presentation Evening & Dinner was
held at the Kedleston Golf Club. This was an opportunity to mark and celebrate the achievements the 4a children
who had competed during the 2015 showing season.
We were delighted to welcome former 4a member
and RIHS champion Abbie Bolton, who kindly returned to present the rosettes and trophies. Abbie has had quite a
season herself, having ridden Tilston Tic Toc clear around the 4 star Landrover Burghley Horse Trails.
Our grateful thanks must also go to Mr James
Leavesley who gave his time to stand in as both the voice of our
roll call and auctioneer for our varied auction lots. James was a star and he navigated his way through
unpronounceable pony names with lighthearted professional ease.
Special awards for outstanding results were
awarded to those riders who has won at RIHS and HOYS ( please refer to Results page for full list of points
results for 2015).
It was particularly heartening to welcome
members from other BSPS areas - how kind it was of them to make the long journey to support us.
The children went on to create mementos of the
evening for themselves in Trudy Trafford's photo booth, with the
teenagers celebrating on the dance floor to the backdrop of their own riding images.
What a fitting finale to the 2015
Merry Christmas all, and if course, the very
best of luck for 2016
