Poetry to Bloodhounds
The 59th AGM and conference last week was generally rated as one of the best, with a packed and varied programme of events held in the Bedford Lodge Hotel in Newmarket.   
At the Annual dinner several awards were presented – among them the ‘Golden Spur’, given to a talented young instructor Jennifer Hesketh who, after a tough selection process was a worthy winner.  Prizes were also given to various Riding Schools who participate in the ABRS Tests League.  The speaker Roger Clark, Master of the East Anglian Bloodhounds, entertained with an informative and amusing talk ranging over subjects as diverse as poetry to bloodhounds – via farriery, and for once the food was excellent!   
 
There was a good mix of outside visits organized by Linda Porter-Cohen on Sunday afternoon and Tuesday morning and excellent presentations on Monday at which we were given ideas that inspired; had common sense solutions re-enforced and also some old ideas overturned.  The speakers were all interesting, relevant and informative.  
 
The AGM was chaired by our President James Gray MP, and the members who attended gave permission for your Executive to make changes to the Constitution, which will be put before you next year. This is your executive committee for the coming year.

We all lead such busy lives so an important part of these functions to be able to catch up with old friends and as usual there was plenty of ‘networking’ going on – especially in the bar!  The office, and Emma in particular, worked very hard to make such a successful event run smoothly, and our thanks go to her and also to the main sponsors, Leopard Risk Management Ltd for providing us with such an upbeat and interesting three days.
