This is also the Hopetoun work party weekend - the Hopetoun team would very much appreciate all members who are asking for a place at the clinic to help with some of the pre-Hopetoun preparation work in between their lessons.

Tea and Cake in return for your help.

A Polite Message to all competitors!

Get your entries in on time!!!

It is even more difficult this year with the Equine Flu vaccinations/Passports having to be checked at all events.

Please make a (very late) 2019 New Year’s Resolution and send entries as soon as you can, and absolutely before the closing date.

REVISED ADVICE FROM SCDA re Equine Flu Vaccinations

SCDA Requirements for Events, including Clinics, Grassroots, Club, Regional and National/International.

The SCDA Directors have taken further advice and have agreed that each event will use their venue requirement as their benchmark.

MorrisIf your horse has had an infectious disease in the last 6 months please do not enter.
Dunbog6 months
Hopetoun6 months
Clinics –Townfoot and Seacliff6 months

With our mix of venues, where we are all guests, and yards that our equines come from, it seems sensible to protect our equines’ welfare as best we can, and comply with the yard regulations so that our venues are as protected as much as possible.

To aid organisers please send a photo of your vaccination pages and the front cover of your passport to me as soon as your equine complies with this protocol
07833 712133

by email/text with your name attached.
