Hi to everyone. My apologies for the teething problems with the new website as I have had some problems learning how to use the back end so I can add members and new posts.
The next meeting will be held on the 29th June 2023 at 6pm East court Chinese Resteraunt 1st floor 144-148 Windsor Street Richmond.
The meeting will be taking nominations for officers for the coming financial year, if there are no new nominations the committee will stand.
The Derek Gardner clinic held at Hawkesbury TAFE had a good attendance and we had 12 members and apprentices who were all subsidised by the association at a cost of $1200
The association once again sponsored the apprentice farrier competitions at the Tamworth Cutting Futurity. The apprentices received vouchers to buy tools. Total value of the sponsorship was $2000
The association has also sponsored Kate Nipperess in her quest to compete with the Australian equestrian team at the Paris Paralympics 2024. Kate was injured in a horrific trackwork fall at Warwickfarm in 2016 which left her wheelchair bound. We will cover the cost of shoeing her horse Cruise and have supplied her with MFA sponsored clothing. We wish her all the best. Kate also has a go fund me page and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Can members please check their details on the website to make sure details are correct. If there is a problem, please let us know by email firstname.lastname@example.org as we have ceased the member logins and changes can now only be made by the association.
If members are not receiving text messages please let us know , if there are any farriers who are not on the website and you feel they should be get them to apply on line. Membership is free of charge for any tradesmen who have papers
Regards JIm Middleton secretary
