There’s still time to register and pay to come to the AGM and prizegiving dinner at the Waikanae Club next Sunday 8 July – it’s a fun night and a good time to socialise away from our horses!

Pikarere poster, Wairakau results and photos

Entries are open and the ride poster has been emailed to WATRC News subscribers. If you missed it, check it in our Calendar. Pikarere is a challenging and deceptively hilly ride (see our old but still fairly accurate trail profile) but well worthwhile. Unfortunately the terrain is unsuitable for Lead Rein, although we will have an Intro class.

Wairakau is done and dusted (and dampened by all accounts) and you can find Results in the usual location. Photos by PJ Renshaw can be found linked from our Photos page - PJ has done a great job in trying weather conditions.
