Kirsten Kennedy was the examiner for the three Ride Leader candidates from Achnalarig Stables in Oban. Congratulations to Cara Duthie, Karen Rodger and Jenny Livingstone on passing their examination. All three have been working hard to prepare for their exam and were delighted and more than a little relieved when they received their results. Well done girls.

Warmer weather, made the last exam of the year a more comfortable experience for our two Centre Operators and three Ride Leaders attending Crieff Hydro on Friday 2nd December.
Sue MacDonald from The Uist Community Riding Centre and Sheena Thomson, head girl at Argyll Adventure, became our 69th and 70th successful Operator when they passed their exam. The exam started in 1992 with the first successful candidate being Liz Simpson who is now the Chief Examiner for the Society. The examination deals with all aspects of owning and running a riding centre and is not easily achieved. Huge congratulations to both Sue and Sheena. The photograph shows Sheena and Sue with Liz in the indoor arena, where they are observing the group of riders and discussing suitable training programmes to develop the riders.

Congratulations to the exam candidates who braved the freezing conditions at Crieff Hydro today to sit their Ride Leader examination. In addition, Kirsten McGregor from Barbarafield Riding Centre in Fife upgraded her 2015 Ride leader certificate to Senior. Well done Kirsten.
Well done to Cara Gelati and Nikki Dayton from Wilder Ways who operate a guiding service for owners with their own horses and riding business from Argyll. They both qualified as Ride Leaders and have great plans for their business.
Barbarafield Riding Centre also put forward Melissa Walkinshaw and Lauren Copland for their Ride Leader examinations which they passed. A great day if a little cold.
Our happy group are pictured in the reception area of Crieff Hydro stables after they received their results.
The last examination of 2016 takes place again at Crieff Hydro stables on Friday 2nd December. Fingers crossed for a warmer temperature.
