Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 13th October, 7.20 for 7.30pm via zoom. All members for whom we hold a valid email address will be emailed the invite.
Your membership renewal forms should be with you shortly, this has been such an unusual year and there has been no club activity. No trophies will be presented at the AGM. The Committee regrets the membership fee remains the same but please rest assured there are plans to revive and restore the club next year (Covid-19 permitting).
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact any committee member.

Non-members may, by agreement, participate in our events. You must contact the organiser in good time and say you are not a member, you may come to a maximum of two events and then you must join. Two points to note - firstly you will have to pay £5 more than the stated price and you must have your own third party liability insurance cover.
Cheques must be made payable to "South Lammermuir Riding Club", not SLRC, the bank is getting very particular about this. We welcome BACS payments, please use your surname and date of event as a reference and also email Treasurer Liz Ward to let her know how much you have sent and what it is for, thank you.
Chairman Doreen Calder BEM
We are delighted to read in the Queen's Birthday Honours list 2018 that Doreen has been awarded a BEM. She has spent many years devoting her spare time to help numerous worthy causes, mainly, but not restricted to, Equestrianism. Berwickshire Pony Club, Point to Point, Duns Castle Cross Country Event and the South Lammermuir Riding Club (to name but a few) would not be where they all are today without her unfailing generosity. True to form she was off to help Area 1 SJ team on the weekend of the announcement. Very well deserved Doreen!

WELCOME TO THE
SOUTH LAMMERMUIR RIDING CLUB
South Lammermuir Riding Club
The South Lammermuir Riding Club (SLRC) is based in the Scottish Borders, mainly around the Duns area, although members also reside in East Lothian and Northumberland.
SLRC encourages everyone to enjoy their sport by running competitive and instructional events in all disciplines while encompassing all abilities. No matter what stage the partnership of horse and rider they can participate and “have a go” at competing.
There are also ride outs and BBQ’s for the less competitive members and several social events which are also open to non-members.
Most of all though it is important that members have fun, pleasure and enjoyment from their horses.
The club is run by a small committee of volunteers. Our chairperson is always hugely generous, giving a huge amount of her own time to the club, not to mention the use of the facilities at Marigold. Photo is of Doreen as we all see her - getting Marigold ready for the rest of us to go out and enjoy our horses.
The committee members are in office for three years and new members are elected at the AGM in October. We are always looking for new people to come forward with fresh ideas (and strong arms for lifting jumps!)
