WP Group sponsor New Forest Riding Club Annual Show

 26th Jul 2011

New Forest Riding Club 2011

WP Group are proud to have sponsored the New Forest Riding Club Annual Show on July 3rd 2011. Pam Horrigan,  the company Credit Controller, has been involved with the New Forest Riding Club for the last few years. The show featured dressage and show jumping.

Janet Sheen, the Chairman of the New Forest Riding Club, had this to say:

"The day started very early with competitors arriving at 8.00am luckily we were there by 7.30am. We were also very fortunate to have beautiful weather, a lovely venue Brockenhurst Park and the going for the horses was perfect. This year we had made the show rings slightly larger and thank goodness we did as we had so many entries, a bumper year. We had for the first time introduced a Championship Rug for Rings 3 and 4 which it seems most people thought was a great idea. Ring 2 was Dressage and again we had good entries for this. 

Ring 1 is our Show Jumping which is kindly sponsored by WP Group. We had been given two lovely banners which were displayed on the sides of the rings and we thank WP Group for their generous sponsorship for these classes. We started this ring off at 8.30am with Clear Round Jumping. Then at 10.00am the main competitions begin. We have 5 classes of jumping starting at 1'9" for the Novice, the height then gradually going up to 2'9". We again had a lot of entries and this ring was the last to finish at the show.

We believe from the feedback we have had, that the show this year was one of the best we have had, and I would like to thank WP Group again for your kind sponsorship."
