The ECCTG team of Libby Richards (Holly), Nicki Phillips (Tarry), Nicki Toomer (Tomas) together with Sue O Leary and Argento won the qualifier for the BRC Novice Show Jumping Championships at South View on 10th November.

The new newsletter is now on the website so do check it out. There will also be some hard copies at the next meeting.
We have two Rocky parties booked. These are sessions at New Barn, Olllerton near Knutsford, with Lisa Pritchard and her amazing simulator 'Rocky'. Those of us who have participated previously have found the sessions most enlightening. The sessions will be held on 7th and 8th January from 7pm. Numbers are limited to a maximum of seven at £20 each. Each person receives 20 minutes on Rocky. Lisa has now a cyclossage massage chair in place so members can have a wave massage while they wait. Places will be on a first come, first saved basis so please contact Joy Toomer as soon as possible. If we are over subscribed it will be possible to arrange a further session at a later date.
A number of our members have a fortnightly sessions of flatwork at Alsager Equestrian Centre at 10.30 am on Tuesdays. There are normally six riders in a group and Joy Toomer instructs. From time to time the odd person has to withdraw for a week or two either through illness, lameness or holiday and the ladies would be interested to hear from anyone who would like to go on a waiting list for these odd sessions. Unfortunately there is no permanent place available at the present time. If you would like to be on the list, please contact Pat or Jill Bell. This is a privately arranged group which has run for many years - it is not a BBA event.
