As we move towards the end of this year we all need to reflect on 2022, a year of Covid, Floods, Fires and the devastation that has affected all parts of Australia, but on a good note we have finally seem some light at the end of this year, of shows once again happening, of a new crop of Riding Pony foals being born. We need to support all those in need and remember to be kind to each other.
Many thanks to all the members who have supported the Society by renewing their membership and continuing to registering their Riding Ponies. A huge thank you to the wonderful Sponsors who always support financially the State Committees to run the State RP Shows, these are always great events. I was invited to Judge the 2022 SA State Riding Pony Show in November and met up with the hardworking committee and I judged many very wellbred SA Riding Ponies.
A huge thank you to the RP office staff who are so supportive to all the Board in administrative tasks.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all Members and their Families
