We have just been informed that a yard in Rowney Green has reported a case of strangles. As a precaution we have decided to cancel the dressage competition scheduled for Sunday 15th of January. The entrance money can either be re-funded or transferred to the next dressage taking place on 12th of February 2017. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation but I am sure you all agree it is better to be “save than sorry”.
