Below are all known dates for side saddle events happening locally in 2021. Note that many venues now require safety hats to be worn, please check the show schedule carefully as rules may vary even between classes at the same show.
This is just a friendly reminder to make sure you complete ENTRY FORMS for each event and email them to our lovely entries secretary Anne Chambers (firstname.lastname@example.org) . You can now pay by BACs online which makes it even simpler! WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT ENTRY TO AN SSA19 EVENT WITHOUT A COMPLETED ENTRY FORM & PAYMENT.
Well Mr COVID is proving to be something of a challenge. We have carefully planned our 2021 Diary. The safety of you and your horse is paramount to AREA19 but we are confident we can organise events abiding by all the rules and regulations. Each event will be run in line with the Government guidance at the time (and a lot of red tape behind the scenes) but we are sure this will not affect your enjoyment.
We remain focused on encouraging new and old members alike to dust off the cobwebs and bring a smile to some low key events, to get us going again and above all have fun!
