Newsletter 174 posted

If you're on our mailing list you've probably already got it. Otherwise, look for it on our News page (

It's great to see the news letter filled out with member contributions to "The days of our rides". Thanks to everyone who has shared their experiences - the news letter is all the better for it.

Bright's on Sunday is the last ride before Champs. Another challenging hill ride but again with great views over the Kapiti coast. Hope you can make it.

Bright's poster updated, Waitohu photos uploading

A revised ride poster for Bright's Farm has been sent to the news letter mailing list and uploaded to the website. The chief difference is in the course distances for McCready Civil and Junior classes which have been lengthened to 20km. You can find a link to the poster on our Calendar page ).

Waitohu photos are uploading but will likely take all night at the present rate, and that's assuming no break-downs. There's a link to the album on our Photos page ). I probably won't get time to update the cover page and photo tags until Monday evening, but with luck the whole set will be uploaded before then.

Expect a newsletter in the next few days.

Pikarere photos uploading

Once again I'm failing to meet my deadline of completing the last set before the next event, and so, again I'm uploading what I have ready and will complete the set when I can.

In fact it worked out quite well last time as with the part set of Manakau uploading in the background I was able to concentrate on finishing the edits and when I got home from Pikarere they were ready to upload.

Fingers crossed for a fine day tomorrow at Waitohu. A challenging course at any time, with the extra length, new trails and possibly slippery going on the hills you'll need to look after your horses and yourselves. Have fun, stay dry (if you can), stay safe, and smile for the photographer ;-)

See you there.

Oh, and here's a link to the Photos page )
