31 May and 1 June:
George Riding Club are very pleased to be hosting the National Team Champs end July and with Jackie Peskins as course designer will be working on building great tracks.
We are busy building tracks for the graded event on 31 May / 1 June with classes from 60cm to 1m.
It is our first graded event since we have joined Western Province we would appreciate having as many riders from Cape Town as possible supporting us.
We will provide a list of the more cost effective accommodation options plus there is the option of renting a caravan which will be set up for you.
To help keep costs down George Riding Club is offering visiting riders the opportunity of overnighting in the clubhouse at no cost.
Stabling will be charged for the duration of the show & not by night.
ICE ID BRACELETS
ICE ID supplies a range of medical alert bracelets to help you IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY. Accidents can happen anywhere at anytime so its best to be prepared. Ideal for young and old, there is a product to suit your style and your lifestyle.
Committe member Merri (Spratley) has one that was bought as Merri does cold water swims and often rides on her own.
The range is very wide and caters for everyone and one can also colour co-ordinate your bracelet.
Ordering is VERY simple and won’t take longer than a few minutes and its all done off their website
All bracelets once manufactured are mailed to the customer.
A popular one is the NEW Pro
This has enough lines for :
Ice Contact no 1
Ice Contact no 2
Medical aid number
PLEASE NOTE ALL THE NEW INFORMATION IS IN RED
The Wellington case spoken of here is the latest one, not the one from the end of last month. As results are obtained from deaths, or proper information is received about deaths, the “suspected” deaths that are not currently reported are either confirmed and reported, or left.
CONGRATULATIONS to all the prize winners this past weekend.
We hope your horses/ponies are getting a well deserved rest after competing in the heat of this past weekend!!

Please note that there have been a few changes in the dressage times, so if you checked your dressage times earlier in the week, please do so again and it might have changed. Remember also that the dressage times are Approximate and it is your responsibility to make sure that you arrive early enough to allow for scratchings and give yourself enough time to warm up.
Please note also that the 3rd page of the programme explains when the prizes will be handed out for the Noordhoek Farm village Summer Series, so for those who have taken part in all these shows, please take note of those times and if you are in with a chance, make sure that you are there and mounted.
