March Newsletter 2010

Dear Members

Once again, after the awful winter, we are steaming ahead into a late Spring.

Although we unfortuntely had to cancel our course at Addington, Jo Winfield organised a brilliant study day at Hartpury on 23rd February (see report) which also enabled us to have the Association’s AGM over the lunch break of the day, together with a committee meeting to organise this years events.

We’ve had our second event already – the representation at the excellent National Equine Forum which included a walk round Greenwich Park, site of our Olympics, (see report). Please look at the events we have planned for 2010, put them in your diaries and call the organisers now so as not to miss out. All events are with our top trainers, designed to be informal and encourage discussion, and are always great fun and well worth the effort of attending. On the social side, Hickstead is a real treat and a chance to dress up a bit, let your hair down shouting at the scurry and terrify yourself on the course walk of the Queen Elizabeth Cup. It really is a lovely day out in the company of friends.

Do you know of a Fellow or BHSI who perhaps used to be, but is now not a member? Or someone who has achieved their BHSI but somehow slipped through our net? Please encourage them to join our Association – slip them a membership form off the website! Even bring them to Hickstead.

Our Association is going from strength to strength and we also are looking for a new Secretary and newsletter compiler as Alison has done her 3 x 3 years….could it be you?

Call or email Alison for an informal no committments chat, as they say!

Finally, please try and use this website for information and dates over the coming year.

I look forward to seeing you all at some point over the year.

Yours sincerely


William Blane FBHS – Chairman, F & I Association
