In 2019, Dean Close Equestrians achieved 13 Qualifications for the National, Elite and Grass Roots finals which is a testament to their hard work, commitment and training. As ever a huge thank you has to be given to the Staff who came and volunteered and supported on the day and the Equestrian Parents without who’s commitment the event wouldn’t be able to run. They helped man the warm up arenas, collecting rings and secretaries and all with great humour and dedication . The day ran smoothly if a little long and for 2020 we will be looking at the timings of the day going forward. Lastly and by no means least, a very big thank you to Pleasance Jewitt and the team at Rectory Farm who always make us feel so welcome and help us make the day what it is. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you back again for 2020
