Congrats to Novice winner Sharyn Wells and Diesel, who practiced their socks off to achieve a score of 118/160. Second was Helen Woolven and Rio with 112, Third was Mary Stockdale on the lovely 6 year old black arab mare Cumbria Khafifah with 110 (arabs rock LOL not biased at all), Fourth was Veronkia Korkoszkova on Molly with 103, Fifth was Anne Short and Another Chance with 102 and Sixth was Carol Higgins on Wee Bob with 97.

The Top Score was highly contested with the winner being Helena Stewart and Fergus, (who is recovering from a strain and wasn’t allowed to canter!) with a well thought out course gaining a massive 181 points. Second was Rhoda and Fizz who had a good go but only managed 142 points. Third was Moira Pickering and Zak, Fourth equal were Ailsa Wylie and Arabella on their first every TREC outing and Emma and Indi, both on 119 points. Sixth was Andrew Hamilton and Georgie, who despite not practicing got 97 points.
Well done and hope to see you all at the next one on March 16th!
We’re pleased to let you know that we have dates for two SJ competitions this year: 1st June and 10th August, schedules to follow in due course. We are holding these at the fabulous West Kype again. These will be unaffiliated competitions with classes from nursery novice to open (junior and senior), as well as clear round and pairs.
We had great fun last year with our Olympic themed and Halloween themed jumping. We do like a bit of (safe) fancy dress, so if you have any suggestions for a theme, do let us know on the Facebook page!
We also have a date for our annual showing show, Saturday 28th July at Maidenhill, Newton Mearns.
Lanark Riding Club marked the end of an era at its AGM on Monday 12th November when Jane Nally stood down from the committee after 15 years of service.
Jane joined the LRC committee in the mid nineteen nineties when the club had a very small membership and only ran a couple of low key events each year. Before long she was elected to the position of Chairman which she held for over ten years. Jane quickly set about changing the image of the club and one of her first tasks was to carry out a vigorous recruitment drive. This was known to involve stopping innocent people out hacking and asking them to join the committee! A priority was to set up a comprehensive programme of riding club events. This included the establishment of a dressage league – Lanark was one of the first Riding Clubs in Area 1 to do this – regular show jumping competitions, and an annual showing and dressage show which literally had classes for everyone! She also believed strongly that the Club should encourage good riding and horsemanship, and developed our ongoing programme of subsidised lessons and training for members.
Throughout her period on the Committee Jane has turned her hand to every conceivable riding club task, from setting up dressage arenas and show jumping courses, to doing the times for the dressage league. She has also stepped in on several occasions when we have needed a judge at the last minute. Hairy pony judging was a particular speciality and we hope we can continue to call on Jane’s services for this. She will also continue to run some beginner’s dressage shows for us at Mid Drumloch farm where people can try dressage for the first time.
Jane also represented the Club at Area 1 and other team competitions on numerous occasions, riding her horses Teco (now semi retired) and Gem. Riding Gem, she was part of the successful LRC team that came 5th at the Area 1 dressage qualifier atRozellePark in June this year.
Everybody at Lanark Riding Club is very sorry to see Jane standing down, and we will miss her expertise and experience on so many things. We wish Jane all the best for her ‘retirement’ from the committee. She should now be able to compete at events more often, instead of holding a clipboard!

Huge well done to Lanark Riding Club, who was well represented by two teams at the Area 1 dressage qualifiers at SNEC yesterday.
Unfortunately, lameness meant that the ‘blue’ team (Caroline Allen, Moira Pickering and Karen Kilpatrick) were down to 3 members, but still did a fantastic job and got placed 17th. The ‘red’ team of Stewart Murphy, Jane Nally, Pamela Mailler and Marion Reid took 9th place.
Individually, Pamela was 4th in the prelim warm up, and Stewart and Moira were 4th and 6th in the novice warm up. Well done to Stewart for being placed 2nd in the novice qualifier test with a super score of 71.5%.
Thanks to Almond Riding Club for a well organised and fun day out.

On 12th Nov, we held our 2012 AGM at the Montgomerie Hall, Eaglesham. Well done to our 2012/2013 trophy winners:
Earlier in the year, it was announced that hat tagging, to ensure compliance with regulatory standards, would be mandatory for all those taking part in RC team events.
Those who do not have their hats tagged will not be allowed to compete. There will be the opportunity to have your hat tagged at the Area 1 dressage day at SNEC on Saturday 17th November.
If you can’t make the trip, but need your hat tagged, Lanark are sending two teams to the dressage and can take your hat for tagging. if you would like us to do this, please drop off your hat – clearly labelled with your name – to Technogroom in Carluke, by Friday 16th Nov. Hats will be available for collection from Technogroom the following week.

After a hugely successful pub quiz in August, we held a second quiz on Friday 19th October at Langlands Golf Club. Despite a valiant effort, reigning champs the Easy Riders were unable to retain their title and were toppled from the top spot by Why the Long Face?, with Out to Grass in hot pursuit.
It was a close contest all the way through but Why the Long Face? overtook Out to Grass in the final round to win by a nose and claim the coveted LRC Quiz Trophy.
Newcomers the Pink Ladies, the Night Night Mares, Pinky and Perky, and Quizzy Rascals gave an impressive performance in their first outing
1st WHY THE LONG FACE?
2nd OUT TO GRASS
3rd EASY RIDERS
4th PINK LADIES
5th THE ‘NIGHT NIGHT’ MARES
6th QUIZZY RASCALS
7th PINKY AND PERKY
The event raised £160 for Wear it Pink breast cancer charity, with the‘Night Night’ mares and Pinky and Perky sharing the honours as Pinkest Teams.
Thanks to all who attended and to those who couldn’t come along but who donated money.
Thanks also to Quizmaster Rody and question compiler extraordinaire Sheila!
