Mare/Gelding Inspections - Summer/Autumn 2017

Dear Members

The closing date for the mare inspections was yesterday. I have only received five firm applications for mare inspections in August. I am expecting another four, making nine horses in total.
The location of these mares means that we should be able to run three venues in August.

Sunday 20 August: Annual Breed Show (2 horses) - we need more!

Monday 21 August: Two venues: Worsley, Greater Manchester (3 horses) and Ormskirk, Lancashire (3 horses).
These two venues are fairly close geographically, which makes the low numbers logistically possible.

I have just one mare in Dorset, whose owner applied way back in the spring, so I do not want to let her down. Unless we have more applicants, we cannot go there just for the one horse. Please can you help?
I am happy to extend the deadline for the August venues until the end of this week (30 June). I am open to the possibility of holding more in September/early October, but only if cost effective.

Best regards
Heather Chaplin
Inspection administration manager
