Many thanks to the members who took the time to respond to the questionnaire that was sent out by British Reining. It was much appreciated, as the main purpose of the association is to support the needs of our membership.
The results of the questionnaire were discussed at the BR Council meeting in January, and the following points were agreed :
To introduce a "Prime Time" year end buckle award (age 50+)
To introduce a "Select" year end buckle award (age 65+)
To introduce a "Novice Horse Non-Pro" year end buckle award
To introduce a "Novice Horse Open" year end buckle award
To re-introduce BR Merchandise (Updated)
To hold "Ranch Riding" classes at the BR Spring Show
The application for riders to be considered for team GBR selection has been changed - the initial fee will be reduced to £50. If the rider is successful a further fee of £250 will be paid. The amount raised will contribute to the costs of the competition.
The general concusses was that the members want a minimum of two pure Reining Shows a year.
A request was made to have a "For Sale" category on the website to advertise horses. This already exists but has not been supported.
The Year End Buckle Awards should continue in their present format
i.e. Saturday night of the BR Championship Show
Looking forward to seeing you at the
British Reining AGM at Oakridge Arena on Friday 10th February at 6pm.
