A message your committee:
Regrettably we have to cancel all SLRC activities until further notice.
These are uncertain times for everyone, as horse owners we have added responsibilities. Please see below some information from BRC/BHS website. Remember your vet, farrier and livery yard owner will have their own protocols which should be respected at all times.
June 16th - here is the latest update from British Riding Clubs:
With further announcements from the UK and devolved governments, BRC are now able to issue the following update with regards to BRC activities. It should be noted that whilst the respective governments are producing regular updates, these then require careful consideration and interpretation, to make the guidance relevant to our individual sector. The following updates are BRC’s current interpretation of the most recent government guidance and are subject to change, as and when government advice is updated. All updates in this document are effective as of 1 June 2020. Click here for further information
"Horse welfare is critical and grooms or the sole carer for a horse should travel to provide care for horses. Where horses are kept in livery the BHS advises that horse owners respect the protocol put in place by the yard owner or manager and work as a team to agree a care plan for your horse(s).
There are no specific government guidelines for the question around whether we should still be out riding at present. Our strong advice is that it is not appropriate to put unnecessary pressure on the emergency services now or for the foreseeable future. It is incumbent on all of us to make an individual decision as to whether riding is necessary at all, at this time. Decisions can only be taken based on individual circumstances but our choices should always be mindful of the potential impact for ourselves and others.
The health and welfare of your horse is your priority. If you have any concerns please contact your vet, yard manager or the BHS and we will do our best to assist you. You can contact us via telephone on 02476 840517 (calls may be recorded for monitoring purposes) or email us at email@example.com."
Please note, while the guidance is current at the point of publication, it may quickly be superseded following further government updates, or changes to the situation.
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
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!)
